I have a cake order. 8" and 6" rounds with a cupcake shaped into a teapot for the top. Any suggestions since a cupcake is small?

Thanks,
Letisha

I would go even one size down - take two mini cupcakes, trim the tops if domed. Use the cupcakes as cake layers with icing in between - you get roughly the form of a teapot. Use this as base, cover with fondant and model the details - roughly as attached drawing:

Another option.........are they set on the teapot being made out of a cupcake?

If not, rice krispy treats work really well because they are more sturdy then a cupcake would be and you could cover it with fondant and make the spout and handle out of either all gumpaste or a 50/50 mixture of gp/fondant.

I have a large one in my pic's that was made out of RKT
