I used this one to make the tea cup in the 70th birthday cake in my photos

I went out and bought a tea cup with a saucer in a 2nd hand shop for less than a pound, and i used it as the mold .

I used sugar florist paste (Gumpaste), I rolled it very thinly, and used the template thats in the tutorial icon_smile.gif
and dusted the inside of the cup well with cornflour before i put the paste in, where the paste over lapped, I trimmed it down and glued it together, i left it to dry for about a week, and then after it was dry, i sanded down the ridge from where i glued the edges together with a new nail file and it worked a treat icon_smile.gif Then i added the handle, and some dots for colour icon_smile.gif
