A tea pot cake is rather heavy, so for my tea pot cake, I put a small 3 or 4 inch cake board under the cake, with 3 dowels circled around the outer edge of the cake board for support.
Thanks a million.
From your Comment on my Picture -- ........ How did you make them so perfect?
Thank you for the comment on my picture, that was really nice of you.
I formed the spout and handle by hand. Then, I made a small pile of corn starch for them to dry on. (I didn't want to put them on the counter because it would give them a "flat" side. Plus, the corn starch helps to draw out the moisture in the fondant. FYI - I add a couple pinches of Gum-Tex to the fondant, so the pieces would dry harder).
I let my fondant cover cake, and the spout and handle, sit out over night, before I attached the pieces together. (If you let your fondant covered cake dry out over night you will have a much firmer surface to work with when attaching the spout and handle).
