Q&A with Addi Cakes

Pdgrovebaskets asked:
I will say I have NEVER in all my life been more impressed by a cake. Are you SURE this is not a porcelain coffee pot? I keep sitting here looking and looking and honestly, if I had to make a bet I would say porcelain. To the maker of this cake, if this is your ability then you honestly should have your own show on cake decorating. I'm completely gobmacked and I've seen thousands of cakes in the last couple of years. Well Done!!!
Addi Cakes answered:
Thank you so very much, and yes this truly is cake.
Pdgrovebaskets asked:
Addi, I can see pretty much how you did everything on this cake as far as sheen, flower decorations, gold trim, even the spout and handle. (I'm assuming they're fondant you formed and then allowed to dry). But what I can't work out is how you formed the shape of the coffee pot (or tea pot) (is it a coffee or tea pot?). Did you start with some sort of shaped cake pan or is this carved? Will you share your secret? I think this should be a tutorial on this site or another cake decorating site. A friend of mine did a teapot for me when I hosted my Longaberger branch at my home for the yearly awards meeting and her biggest problem was keeping the spout on the pot. Of couse then, close to 10 years ago now fondant was rarely used by home decorators. She did and still does wedding cakes but the teapot (which was still beautiful) was a new challenge for her.) Although a lifelong home baker I didn't get into decorating cakes until about 3 years ago. I have always given quite a few tea parties, especially during the 17 years I sold the Longaberger products from which I've sadly had to retire due to health reasons. However I would still LOVE to learn how to do a cake like your tea pot for the ocassional function I have. I believe you should sell the copyright to Wilton for them to do a shaped pan like this. I think cups and saucers and the sugar and creamer should be among your next projects you do for your Craftsy site.
Addi Cakes answered:
It is a Tea Pot. It was made to match the customers duaghters teapot for a birthday tea party. The cake is indeed carved, but it is very simple and has very little carving to it. just to finish the shape. a 6" round pan is used for the center, then the smaller 6" half ball pan is used for top and bottom, both are trimed to place a flat spot in them, the sections trimmed off are used to create the very top and lid portion. The spout and handle are gum paste and have dowel rods inside to hold them on. all the grooves were done with a ball tool.
Delynn Tracy asked:
BEAUTIFUL! Should I assume you stenciled BEFORE adding the grooves with the ball tool?
Addi Cakes answered:
yes I did
Saskia Beaton asked:
Absolutely amazing! Hard to believe this is a cake! How did you achieve the porcelain finish on the cake/teapot?
Addi Cakes answered:
Clothing Steamer will give you the sheen, also helps to remove the powdered sugar.
