how did you make it, i have never seen anything so brilliant in my life. did you ice the cups and saucers or what.
you are an amazing person, would love you to be my daughter.

fishergrl, May 28, 9:23pm
Aww thanks Korbo - that gave me warm fuzzies :)

I molded the cups and saucers inside real teacups i have using gumpaste after dusting the china with a liberal amount of cornflour and drying in my oven with the light and fan on only - turning every little while to make sure the gumpaste didn't stick otherwise it will break when you try and get it out. then decorated them once they dried - easy :)

A true work of art :)

I am still oggling over this teapot. can you explain how you did it. did you use a basin and make a cake,for the teapot and then mould the spout and handle.I would never be able to even think about making it, and just love it. have put the photo on my screen saver for now....

What a lucky Mum!

i started with 3 x 8in round cakes - torted them and stacked with white choc ganache. I trimmed the top layer on an angle (maybe 35 degrees) then flipped the stack.I then trimmed the top two layers on an angle to give a somewhat rounded shape.using some ganache and the trimmings i made a "spackle" type mixture which i dumped on the top of the stack and molded to be the top of the teapot.

fishergrl, May 29, 6:04am
I then did a crumb coat in ganache, let it set then applied a second coat to smooth out any lumps and bumps. At this stage it looked much like a ball.I then covered it in fondant.
the spout was molded around my teapot with gumpaste and i also shaped a handle with the gumpaste and let dry. I did use cocktail straws jammed in the handle on an angle and then removed then while it dried to act as an anchor for the handle.i attached the dry spout and handle to the cake using royal icing and propped my filled kettle against the handle to hold it in place while it dried the spout i stuck a skewer in to hold it until dry.
