I have always admired the Teapot cakes and gum paste cups and saucers posted on CakesDecor and I really wanted to do my own version!! And what better opportunity than my daughters Birthday Tea Party!!!! The theme of this cake is a table set out for a tea party in the garden which is invaded by butterflies. The design of the teapot and the cups and saucers was done in a simple polka dot design since the overall display is a little busy with the additional cup cakes and cookies. The cups and saucers and the butterflies are made of gum paste while all other decorations are made of sugar paste.
I really loved doing this cake for my daughter and once we assembled all the cake she thought that it was amazing. I have to say however that I did not factor in how time consuming it was going to be! Still I have to say that I absolutely love it, hope you like it too!
