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.
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.
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.
