For our daughter's 4th birthday, all she wanted was a Carebear cake. So needless to say we decided to give it a shot. We decided to make all 3 of our childrens cakes this year.
Baked 2 boxes of chocolate Devils Food cake in 2 8 1/2in x 10 in pan. Let it cool completely. Took one of the pans and used a picture out of her Carebears coloring book and cut out the shape of goodluck bear.
Used green food coloring with white cream cheese frosting for the bear leaving his tummy white. Used a can of darker green decorating icing to outline the bear. Used red food coloring for heart and nose and mouth, two little pieces of cookie for the eyes .
Now since Carebears live in the sky and always usually have rainbows around them I used the second cake and just frosted it like a rainbow using food coloring for the different rainbows. It was a hit and everyone including our daughter loved how it looked .
I used a Wilton cake pan to create this Care Bear Birthday Cake and made homemade butter cream icing to decorate it. I first did the sides and tummy in white. I then outlined the image of the Care Bear using Wilton's picture that came with the cake pan. I used a star-shaped tip to pipe in the yellow body and the rainbow up top and then used a small tip to create the cupcake.
I then added details such as the pink dots of icing around the bottom edge, the "Happy 3rd Birthday" on the rainbow, the heart on the bum, and the nose, freckles, and mouth on the face. I used a tooth pick with food coloring to do the brown detailed outline of the eyes. I had a birthday bear Care Bear doll that I looked at during the decorating process to try to get the details as realistic as possible.
This birthday bear Care Bear cake was made for my daughter's 3rd birthday!
This Care Bear Birthday Cake Idea was made using a Wilton pan that I hired from my local cake decorating store. It came with the decorating instructions which were fairly easy to follow. The cake was a buttercake.
I used a grease that I was recommended that sort of looks like Vaseline to grease the tin so the cake wouldn't stick. It worked amazingly! Much better than butter or oil etc. I unfortunately can't remember the name of it now!
I used buttercream icing and food colourings for decorating and on it's tummy purchased a cake transfer which I think are designed to just put straight on a round cake but I put it on the tummy for a bit of interest.
I coated the whole cake in a thin layer of white icing first so the piping would stick and then used a star tip to pipe all the detail.
It was a very fun cake to make but time consuming!
I decided to make my daughter's 1st birthday cake and wanted to do a Care Bear theme. I used a 3D Care Bear cake pan I found on Ebay. With this Care Bear Birthday Cake I found that I had to cook it a lot longer than what the instructions stated because the middle of the cake was still real soupy.
I made buttercream icing that I tinted with Wilton color gel to make pink for the bear's body and red for the heart. I outlined the bear in black decorator icing. I used Wilton star tip 16 to decorate the cake. I mixed my icing the night before, so when it was time to decorate I found that the icing was too hard to use. I rewhipped the icing and it helped, but what helped the most was letting the icing sit out for several minutes to let it get back to it's original soft consistency.
