Step 1

In advance: Make handles and spout. For each treat, add 1/2 teaspoon Gum-Tex to 2 oz. fondant. For handles, roll 1/4 in. diameter logs. Cut a 6 in. section for top handle, a 4 in. section for side handle. Using bottom of pan as a guide, bend into C-shapes. For spout, trim 1/2 in. off tip of sugar cone, then cut cone to 2 in. long, angling at wide opening. Fill cone with fondant and insert lollipop stick. Roll out portion of fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut a 2 x 4 in. section and wrap around cone, smoothing with hands. Shape a 1 in. diameter circle, 1/4 in. thick; brush with damp brush and attach to top of spout. Let all pieces dry on waxed paper-covered board dusted with cornstarch.

Step 2

Bake and cool cupcakes. Lightly ice with buttercream. Roll out fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cover cakes with fondant and smooth with Fondant Smoother; trim bottom as needed. Use tip 5 to pipe bead flower with dot center (flatten slightly); add tip 352 leaves. Pipe tip 3 dots on top border. Attach handles with Fondant Adhesive. Insert spout.

A Shower for Flowers Mini Cake is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was easy AND FUN!!! My neice had her "ring ceremony" where the Juniors at Villa Duschene have a ceremony for receiving their school rings. I made these Mini tea cakes for each of her close friends and they LOVED them. They were so excited to get their individual cakes and I decorated each to their favorite color and flowers. But I did something a little different. I made a strawberry cake and cored out the center of the "pot" and filled with a yummy strawberry butter cream!!! That was a big surprise for them since they all love buttercream. I like to add it in somewhere inside cakes when I use fondant. It was so much fun and I will most certainly make again. :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from i did my own rendition of the tea pot. mine was circular. I added a hand made bird out of fondant and lil roses also out of fondant. The only thing that gave me trouble was the spout. i didn't use a cone. i used a lollipop stick. Gave it a curved shape. applied the fondant and let it sit over night. It seemed a little to heavy, then I added some royal icing and it hung on till we cut it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We (my daughter) and myself enjoyed making this cake. It was so much fun to do. The cake we made a bit bigger and smaller ones as give -aways for her birthday party. The kids loved the cake. We also changed it a bit and added some flowers on the smaller ones just to give it a different look from the main birthday cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake was so much fun! My MIL called it a "tea" cake. We had it for a spring shower. I added a raspberry filling. If you are having trouble with your cone breaking, make it a little damp ant it will become pliable.
