There is one in my photos that I have made too. It has more of a real teapot shape.

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?

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! icon_smile.gif
