I made a RKT teapot for the top of a tea party cake and would love to have "tea" coming from the spout. I've seen "droplets" on wires, but am totally baffled as to how it's done. Can someone help?
My first thought would be piping gel or glucose.
Bend the end of the wire into a hook, dip the wire into gum glue, then insert the wire into a ball of gumpaste and roll the ball between your fingers until the top starts to cover part of the wire and it's a teardrop shape rather than a ball. Let dry a couple days. I'd use light brown gumpaste and then paint it with pearl dust, for tea.
I saw them do something similar to that on Amazing Wedding Cakes..I forgot the name of the bakery though. But they did pipe piping gel on wires..looked like water coming out of a fountain..really cool!
I do the same as Texas_Rose, except I roll the teardrop shape first, then insert the hooked wire.
Tracey, I think that was Cakegirls when they did the Morrocan themed fountain cake? It was pretty.
Thanks for the tips. I'm not doing a cake like that right now but love to know the reference is here.
