I have been so excited to share this cake with you for so long. A little while ago Amy from Sweetstamp got in touch to ask if I wanted to create a cake for an editorial in Cake Decoration and Sugarcraft magazine showing an examples of a vintage cake using sweetstamps.

I said yes and came up with the cake design of a vintage teacup and biscuits. On the front of the cake it was to say ‘It’s always time for tea’ from Alice in Wonderland. Now I tried to choose biscuits that went with the vintage theme, so decided to make Nice biscuits and Bourbon biscuits (which is one of my favourites). Everything on the cake is edible and modelled using fondant and gumpaste…

Vintage teacup cake

The July issue of the magazine is out now and it was amazing to see my cake inside. I absolutely loved the 2 page spread they created showing how to use the sweetstamp sets, but I thought I would share with you for this weeks video tutorial how I made the entire cake. This includes all the lettering, the biscuits, the teacup, sugar cubes, teaspoon and pretty rolled roses.

I love how well the lettering goes with the vintage theme on this cake. I used the SweetSticks set which comes in upper and lowercase. Also for the apostrophe in the ‘It’s’ the extra piece of plastic inside the ‘o’ is perfect, so make sure you don’t throw those away. I also used the mini message set by Sweetstamp which was perfect for making the lettering on the front of the biscuits and they just made them look so real.

One of my favourite parts of this cake is definitely the teacup, when I added the little rose design it just looked perfect. For the teacup I created this using Rice Krispie Treats which I modelled into the shape of the cup, which I then covered in fondant. I then added some piping gel over the top of some light brown icing to look like it was filled with real tea. The piping gel really gave it that wet effect making it look like real tea. Surrounded by the mini spoon, fondant sugar cubes and bourbon biscuit I hope you agree it looks very vintage, which I love.

Now I realise there is alot of elements in this cake, but I hope you might be able to use some of the elements, whether it is the pretty lettering, the teacup or maybe the ruffled roses in your own cake decorating.

Below is the full video tutorial showing exactly how I made the whole cake. I really hope you will enjoy it!
