Homemade Bear Cake

My daughter wanted a Build-a-bear party for her 7th birthday, which meant a 3D Bear Cake. Because a bear's tummy needs to be fat and round I used a bowl to bake the cake in. I used a smaller version of the same bowl for the head. I make two large Swiss rolls for the legs and two small Swiss rolls for the arms. The nose was a Ferrero Rocher chocolate ball and the eyes needed to look real to me, so they are not edible but eyes you buy at a sewing shop. The ears are chocolate biscuits; I stuck two together with melted marshmellows just to make them look thicker and I used white chocolate discs for the inner ears and paws.

To make the fur look realistic I took my scapular and tapped the icing and it really worked well. I had a lot of fun making this cake for my beautiful daughter and hope you do too.

I made this bear cake for my sister's baby shower. She didn't know if she was having a boy or girl so I used colors that could go with either. I used 10" round cake pans for the bottom layer, 8" round for the top tier and then I used the mini 3D bear from Wilton for the topper.

I frosted the majority of the cake with buttercream that I colored light blue and rolled out fondant and used a cookie cutter for the stars. For the bear, I had separated a small amount of buttercream and added cocoa for a chocolate coat. A dowel was placed down the middle of his head to hold him on the cake and with a little extra frosting. I gave him a rattle to play with!

The cake was a big hit at the shower and as a result, I have a few more showers yet to do this year!

My sister in law's sister asked if I knew anyone who could make a cake at short notice for her godson's 1st birthday. I had been dying to try this bear cake out, this was my first attempt. I don't think its too bad!

It's covered in all different coloured butter creams, the browns are chocolate flavoured, and the rest are vanilla with a colour. The sponge inside is a Victoria sandwich, but the four paws are chocolate muffins. I didn't tell them that the paws were chocolate muffins, and they said that it was a nice surprise until all the kids started fighting over them.

by Sara Balaa Houssari

My son's 2nd birthday was coming and he loves little bear and trains. So I thought I would make him both.. We had a pool party in our backyard and he had a blast. and kept on Chou chouing.. all day long.

I made the main cart of the train with a 3 rd tarin pan and the carts from a cake loaf that is cut. and the bear was made with a 3d cake pan as well.

The train was a white cake and the bear with chocolate. I decorated it with homemade vanilla frosting.

Thats about it...

I made this cake for a friend's daughter's 11th Birthday. She went to Build-a-Bear for her party and wanted a bear cake.

I baked four 9" round cakes. One cake was used for the head. The other cakes were used to carve the ears, bow, neck bow and snout. The snout was raised to give it a 3D effect.

I used Wilton's food coloring for the color and chocolate icing for the bear. The birthday girl picked out the colors.

This was a fairly easy cake to make and decorate. It was fun!

First of all, I made 3 cakes, 2 round cakes and a square one and cut out the pattern from a stencil I drew. I held it together with caramel. I started icing it, it was meant to be a panda cake but landed up to be a bear cake.

The icing was butter icing, butter,icing sugar and a drop of vanilla essence. It tasted great! and added a bow tie with ribbon.
