Tea Time Teapot Cake

This is my latest tea pot cake. I made all of my decorations with fondant a few days ahead of time. I baked a chocolate cake in the wonder pan that is mainly used for a doll cake. I held out a little of the batter and put it into a pyrex glass custard cup. This was for the lid of the pot.

I cut the larger cake in half and filled it with a chocolate, mocha buttercream filling. To make this I used regular butter cream with two tablespoons of instant coffee and about a half of a cup of cocoa.

First, I frosted the lid with white butter cream and then the large cake.

I rolled out fondant that was homemade to fit onto the lid.

Then, next I rolled out enough for the large cake. I covered the lid first and smoothed it out and brushed it with pearl luster dust. I then covered the large cake and did the same with it.

I put the lid onto the bottom cake and decorated it with my fondant cut outs. I attached the handle and spout with a couple of toothpicks to help hold it onto the cake.

I made some pearls for around the lid and did the rest of the decorations. You have to let the butter cream rest for about 20 minutes before putting the fondant on.

I attached all the fondant decors with a mix of fondant and water...these are easy cakes to do and they are lots of fun to decorate. Nancy of Rialto, CA
