I made this Polar Bear Birthday Cake for my 3 year old son’s birthday. I used a round Pyrex container to build the main head part and some muffins for the paws and the nose. I covered the cake with sugar dough. The nose is a black gumdrop and I used some chipits for the eyes.

For the claws I cut a black gumdrop in pieces. I used some sugar dough to do the water drops but I added a little bit of food colouring to it. The ears are also made with the sugar dough and they stick to the cake with toothpicks. I was unable to find a picture on the web to make a 3D polar bear so I had to let go my imagination for this one.

My son’s sleeps each night with a white polar bear stuffed animal, and he was really excited to get his best friend as a cake.
