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!

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.

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.
