Hi

Can anyone give me some advice on how to make a fondant teacup?

It's for my Dad's 65th birthday cake. He is an avid stamp collector so the cake is going to be a stamp album on a desk theme, if that's make sense?

Anyway, the 'desk' needs a tea cup and saucer and I have tried and tried to make one this afternoon but I just can't seem to get it right!!

It's driving me mad and I really want to include it in the design so if anyone can offer some advice, I be really grateful

I would not use fondant, I would use gumpaste. Roll it very thin, and shape it over a small bowl or a teacup that doesn't have a handle. Do the same for the saucer - make sure you make the indent in the center for where the teacup is supposed to set. Make the handle for the teacup seperatly, and glue it on after the pieces are dry. You can then hand paint them when they are dry too. Hope this helps!
