My co-worker requested a birthday cake for his wife saying his kids thought the cake should be tea themed since she really likes tea. He is Asian so I went with an Asian flare to the teapot with the red color and cherry blossom pattern on it. The bamboo handle is made from gumpaste and is wired inside to keep it’s shape. The spout is a modeling chocolate/fondant mixture. The cherry blossoms were done with luster dust and a stencil.
