Anyone for tea?
This cake was for my lovely mother’s birthday. She’s always got the kettle on for a cup of tea, so I thought a teapot birthday cake would be perfect for her! I made the basic round shape from lemon sponge, filled with lemon buttercream, and covered with pale sugarpaste. I handmade the spout and handle from flower paste and let them dry for a couple of days before attaching them to the teapot. I then attached little sugar hydrangea blossoms, and used a brush-embroidery technique for the white flower designs on the sides. I thought the teapot looked a little lonely by itself, so made some little cups to match – cupcakes!!
