I used the Wilton Care Bear pan to make this Care Bears cake using one box of cake mix. I used the buttercream frosting recipe provided by Wilton. I followed the instructions for the love aLot bear but changed the colors slightly.
I have found in the past that the color rose becomes a very bright pink and I wanted the bear to look more of a mauve color. I used a very small amount of the rose and added the care bears orange and a tiny bit of violet.
I made this cake for a church function and really enjoyed it. This cake took quite a while for me to decorate because of the many colors and small detail, I don't have a lot of decorating bags or multiple tips, so I found myself having to wash out in between each color. For only $1 to $2 more next time I will by an extra star tip so as not to wash out so often.
My mother-in-law and I had mad this Care Bears cake for my daughter's 4th birthday party. My daughter wanted a Care Bear themed party and cake. So my mother-in-law came up with the idea of a cloud and Care Bears in a pool and going down the slide. So that is what we did.
We make the big Care Bear out of rice crispie treats and fondant and the rainbow, stars, little Care Bears and her name also out of fondant. We made the pool out of blue jellow. We also made another 1/4 sheet cake to put on the back side of the cake for the hill. To make the hole in the cake we found a bowl of the size that we liked and put rocks in it to make it stay put while the cake was baking.
It took some time to make this cake, but it was worth every minute of it. My daughter loved it and it was a big hit at the party!
This Care Bears Cake was my first cake that I had made for my granddaughter Sophia. It was her first birthday. I baked one large, medium and small round cake and covered all in light blue icing. The stars were cut out of yellow fondant and the clouds were piped on with white icing. I formed the rainbow slide out of multi-colored fondant and supported the slide with small stakes and attached the Care Bears with icing.
The care Bears were hard to come by. I went on E-bay to get some of them. A cookie sheet was covered with small marshmallows and again stars made out of fondant. I am now working on an Elmo cake for Sophia's 2nd birthday and already have a request from my other granddaughter Sydney for a Hanna Montana cake.
Even though I always stress when I make these cakes, it is and has been a lot of fun, especially when I see my grandkid's faces.
I made this Cheer Bear Cake for my daughter's fourth birthday. I used a Wilton Cheer Bear shaped cake pan. It was pretty easy, considering this was my first time ever attempting anything like this. I used the decorating guidelines from Wilton.
First I frosted the outside and edges with white frosting using a spatula. The I outlined the entire design with various colors of buttercream frosting and a small round tip. Then I filled in the larger portions of the design with a star tip.
I waited until it dried a little then dipped my finger in a little cornstarch and smoothed out the rainbow and the eyes. I used some edible iridescent powder mixed with clear vanilla extract and painted the rainbow and parts of the eyes.
