I am looking to make a teapot & cups cake that I saw on Google. Can anyone tell me how to make the cups? And how about the pot I was thinking that I could use the ball pan but what would I use to make a taller more slinder teapot? Any suggestions would be great. Thanks B
I can't help out very much, because I'm having the same problem. I'm making a tea pot and cup (due in two weeks) for the first time.
I was thinking I'd use the ball pan for the pot and then make the handle, spout, base and lid out of Fondant with some a little Gum-Tex (so they'll dry hard) and then use RI to glue them to the fondant covered ball/tea pot. For the tea cup, I was planning on using a small glass or cup as a mold for the cup part, and then add the lip, base, and handle after it was completely dry.
Maybe someone else will have a better idea and will help us out.
Edited to add: If you are making a more A framed tea pot I would think that you could just carve it to be what you need.
The Wilton wondermold pans (regular and mini) are a nice shape for teapot and cups. See my pics for the teacups I made.
Thank you Jokerz, I never thought to use those.
Just use a tea cup as a mold. Take a peek at my pictures to see the tea cups that I made. I saw a demo at the Orlando Ices by Jacque Benson. They are really easy to do. I would use the ball pan for the tea pot. If you need directions, I can email some to you.

Only instructions for the teapot, not the teacups.
If you would Serenatea, please send me your directions.
Thank you so much.
There was a tutorial from Kim Morrison in the last issue of American Cake Decorating Magazine. Basically she uses a margarita glass to form the tea cup part of it. You might be able to still get the magazine from Global Sugar Art!
I sent you a PM with the directions!!
Thank you so much.
Serenatea, you have the most beautiful teacups I've ever seen!
Thank you so much QueenJessica!!
