Teapot Cake

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have an order for a teapot cake due next weekend for Mother's Day and I've never done one before. I'm guessing that pound cake would be the best cake for carving the sphere. I don't do much carving, so I'm a little worried that this will take a long time or that I'll screw it up with no time to start over. Is there a fool proof way to do this cake? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I think the easiest way might be to use a round/ball pan and not try to carve it from circular cakes stacked on top of one another. There are some great tutorials out there for using the ball pans for teapots. I just googled teapot cake tutorial and got quite a few. But if you don't have one handy (I sure don't) then I would use a nice strudy pound cake and carve it out.

Perhpas if you stack some smaller cakes then larger cakes and top with smaller cakes again it would give you a nice starting point for carving. The smaller bottom layers are a natural foot and the top could be the lid. That way you're not carving away even more in those spots and you can use thme as a guide.

the teapot cake in my photos was done from the small wilton ball. Because it was too small for the party I added another cake underneath as a "tray" , and so got my number of servings.

I tried to carve a large teapot once and it was a total disaster. Hrnewbie has a good idea of using graduating sizes, this will work better than trying to carve a large cake in an even shape (for me in any case)

HTH!

I've done one. I used the Wilton ball pan-just one half of it-set it on a 6" round and carved in the bottom a little.

I made one using pound cake. I used 2 pyrex bowls for the shape, very little carving.

By Nati's Cakes. If you don't want to purchase the ball pans or bowls, this is good for the carving method.

Thanks everyone! I don't have the Wilton ball pan. I wiil try the pyrex bowl idea tonight and if that doesn't work then I'll do the graduating sizes. Anyone know the baking time for baking cakes in a ball pan or pyrex bowl?
