thank you!

You could use rice crispy treats. I would probably use cake for the teapot, though.

good idea! thank you!

I agree with mcaulir - use cake for the teapot, perhaps modelling paste or gumpaste for the gold detail - spout, handle etc. finish with gold lustre dust, mixed with a little vodka.

Good luck with the cake

Hope this helps!
