What are some tips and tricks that you can give to me? It will be covered in fondant. Here's the pic of the real teapot I'm copying. I'm doing gum paste roses instead of painting it on there.

I saw a video on how to do one in buttercream, but I'd like to hear from others on what they do. TIA! icon_biggrin.gif

Hrmm... lol

I would use the wilton 3d ball pan and carve it for the body of the tea pot -
Or use Rice Krispie squares molded into your shape.
For the handle and lid - I would make it out of gumpaste - or fondant dried.

3D gumpaste roses sounds good to me!

Good luck icon_smile.gif

You're definitely going to have to carve the cake but the ball pan is a good idea like DeezTreatz said... I would fill, stack, crumb coat, and freeze the cake then carve away... you'll probably want to bake some smaller rounds to place above and below the ball pan (if you use it) so you get a good shape... I would cover the finished carved cake in ganache to get an overall smooth effect so the fondant goes on smooth too... You could do the spout, lid, and handle either front gum paste or RKT also covered in ganache and fondant... Good Luck!!!

I would probably do stacked, carved rounds (more stable than the ball pan IMO) for the body of the teapot, and make the spout out of RKT and handle out of gumpaste. Cover the body and attach spout w/dowel anchor and chocolate.

I was wondering if stacked would hold better than the ball pan. I def plan to use white chocolate ganache. What's RKT?

Rice krispie treats..you can buy them already made, easier. And stacked cakes would be sturdier than ball pan.
