I don't know if icing will hold it. I've never made a teapot but I did make a turtle. I molded the head and tail around dowels and after the fondant set up , I pushed these into the cake. Icing wouldn't have held them. I guess it just depends on the icing and how heavy the spout and handle are. I'd be more comfortable reinforcing them with dowels or toothpicks or something like that.

You know I'm picturing a teapot cake. Is the teapot a little one made entirely of MMF? If so, wetting it a little with water will get it to stick. MrsMissey also mentioned that she makes a fondant slurry (fondant and water mix) to glue pieces together.

Tell her to mold it on to a toothpick or one of the long kabob picks and use that to stick in to the cake..

My sis is a member of CC too. She said she'll post it as soon as she gets finished. She showed me the pic of the first try to do the spout & handle. It looked pretty good to me. She just needed to shape the spout a little more. Ya'll look for it. Her screen name is tcrema. I'm sure she'll thank ya'll when she gets the chance to!

Crack me up good or crack me up bad? Did I say something wrong?

Where I come from in RI, soupy is a homemade Italian sausage that's hung in a closet until dried. I must have translated it in my mind to slurry so I wouldn't get confused-LOL! Either way, it's a great tip that I'll always remember.
