I wanted to make a special cake for my Mom’s Birthday and I thought how much my Mom enjoys having tea parties with her granddaughters. This teapot cake turned out so cute and was super easy to make in a pinch using the Wilton Classic Wonder Mold.
I baked one Devil’s Food cake box mix in the Classic Wonder Mold. While the cake was baking, I found a bone white teapot in my cabinet. The teapot lid was the perfect size to top the cake. For this cake I chose simple white, but if you have a patterned teapot, you could be inspired to decorate the cake based on the color or pattern of your teapot.
I studied the teapot and sketched out the shape for the spout and handle on paper. Then cut it out and traced it onto yellow card stock twice. (Two times because I wanted to place toothpicks in between the sheets and then stick them into the side of the cake to hold it in place)
I melted some yellow chocolate melting wafers in a squeeze bottle and outlined a bunch of five petal flowers on wax paper. Once the chocolate sets and has cooled, they are very easy to handle to place on a cake.
Once the cake had cooled, I frosted it with my homemade icing and added a little more icing at the top to hold the ceramic lid in place. The cardstock spout and handle were placed and the candy decorations were added to complete the teapot.
Time for tea! Happy Birthday Mom!
