Hey everyone! I need help! Has anyone ever seen or made a tea bag cake. I'm super lost on what to do or even how start!! HELP!!
I haven't, but if I had to do it, I would take a look at one of those "flow-through" tea bags (or whatever they're called) that have been folded over. Take a look at one that's been used, so it will have plumped out. I would try to carve a two-layer cake in about that shape and paint the tea-colored parts on with gel food color dissolved in vodka! Sounds like a fun cake to do. Be sure to let us see a picture of the finished cake if you do it!
Thanks for your advice! It's coming up and i'm still clueless!! lol!!
If you wanted it upright, make it similar to the way you'd make a purse ...tapering upward and carving in the side. If laying down (with a more collapsed bag look), possibly carve it similar to carving a pillow cake...carving from the topside and bottom side on the narrow end (just don't make the carved indents like on a pillow cake though) of the tea bag.
I've never seen one or made one but, that is how I'd go about it if I had to.
Hey everyone Check out my final Teabag cake!!
Hi, Dani084! I just saw your cake and I loved it! I'm sure the person it was for thought it was magnificent. Way to go! Now on to bigger and better cakes! Well, I think that's what we all think when we have a success like this. Anyway, congrats on a job well done.
