Hi yall , I want to make a teapot cake for a class im in but nobody likes fondant. If anyone has any photos or info on how to do this without using fondant ,would be super! Im a beginner also.
Awesome thanks !!
There were some great teapots posted recently look at the gallery for tea pots..
Here's the link:
There is one in my photos that I have made too. It has more of a real teapot shape.
Here's a link to some google images also:
Is there a place here somewhere on this site that might show me how to attach the spout and handle if attempt the gumpaste and is that the right thing to use to make the spout and handle look real?
Quadcrew: I just had to post to say I LOVE that teapot!! Its very pretty.
If you looked at the pics of my teapot, the way that I did it was to make them out of gumpaste a couple of days before making the cake itself so they have a chance to kind of dry. I used toothpicks in the handle and spout where they would attach to the cake. I put the toothpicks in while they were still soft so they would be dried into the handle/spout. I think it is real important to not make them too big. Get the pans out that you are going to use to make the teapot and make the handle and spout to fit. They are not hard to make freehand - (I used a little tykes teapot as a visual.) If you want it to be completely edible, use a thicker piece of spagetti instead of the toothpicks.
I then completely ice the cake with buttercream and smooth it with the viva then add the spout and handle and decorate around them.
ge978 - thank you so much for the nice comments. I have made quite of few of them - I had just started taking pics of my cakes when I made that one. They're real popular for bridal showers here!
Thanks so much QuadCrew ! Im going to try it out.
Quadcrew, I have to say those teapots are excellant.. very fragile looking...
I agree with ge978.... EXCELLANT!
Thank you again, it sure makes me smile when someone says something nice about one of the cakes I really enjoy making. And you're welcome dara64 - if you have any questions, just ask!
