I'm looking to make a cake shaped like a teapot for a bridal shower. Do you have any ideas or photos of them to share with me? I only saw one in the photo gallery to this board. Also if you made one before do you make the handle and spout with rolled fondant? How do you keep it in the cake without falling out? Do you also recommend covered the cake with fondant or icing? I will do whatever looks like the real thing. icon_biggrin.gif

Susan~ you might want to take a look at this website http://www.jacquespastries.com/alloccasion.htm to get an idea for a teapot. If you scroll down to about the 16th row of cakes in the middle is a teapot that is beautiful! It looks like the handle and spout are made of white chocolate?? and the rest is covered in buttercream icing. Let us know how it turns out.

Good Luck icon_smile.gif

I will save that in my favorites and wait until I see more responses and then decide. I love that and thanks for finding the website. I did a google search too and didn't find anything but maybe one more photo.

I will definitely post the photo in gallery once it's done. The shower isn't until April.

Thanks for this link of the teapot. Nice work there. I now have to decide which one to pick and how to do it. I worry about the spout and handle how to make it stay into the cake. I guess I will learn soon. I should make one just to practice.

I will post photo once it's complete (not until April). Thanks again for your time.

Colette Peters just published a book a few months ago, and the cake on the cover is a teapot, with coffee cups stacked on top...Very cool...You can check it out on amazon or barnes n' noble

I just bought a 1993 Wilton yearbook on Ebay and it has a picture of a teapot cake on Page 33. I will try to get someone to scan it for me, since I don't have a scanner. Maybe someone with the yearbook and a scanner can send it to. Let me know if you don't get the picture.

There is one on this site. I made the same design and tried making the handle and spout out of fondant and it did not work. It kept breaking and wouldn't stay on the cake. If I did it again I would use gumpaste or pastillage. They are better for structural type designs. I did a castle with pastillage turrets and they dry so hard and are very sturdy. It's a little tricky to work with but once you figure it out it's great. I did it all in the microwave too, which I really like.

These cakes on this site are elegant and beautiful. I like that teapot cake and looks easy to do. I will save the website in my favorites. I also saw the one from this site that Trisha1972 did and told her it's pretty too. I think I'm good to go and now will need to decide which one I do. I will post it once it's complete (after April). icon_biggrin.gif

The recipe for patillage is under the recipe page on this site. I found it works well to zap it in the microwave when it gets too hard to work with. 10 seconds is plenty. You need to be careful because it gets extremely hot. I burned myself because I didn't think about it being hotter in the middle of the clump of pastillage. You do have to work pretty fast since it hardens so fast. It dries so hard that it works great for this type of thing. I threw away the first batch because it seemed like it wasn't right, I could have microwaved it and saved it. Hope this helps you some, let us know how it works out for you!
