I did this Me to You Teddy Bears Cake for a girl who is a great fan of the Me to You teddy bears.
First of all I did the bears two days beforehand so that they would dry up. I made two sugarpaste balls one on top of each other and attached the arms, legs and ears. Then I prepared some royal icing and coloured it grey.
With a small knife I covered the whole body of the bear and then I made some peaks with the tip of the same knife in order to make the ruffled fur effect. When they were dry I added their eyes, nose, paws etc, out of sugarpaste.
For the cake I baked a square pound cake and cut it in the shape of a sofa. I covered it with pink sugarpaste and placed some heart cut outs all over it. I also made some cushions and wrote ‘Me to You’ on them. I placed the 2 bears on the cake and continued to decorate with sugar flowers.
Finally I formed a scroll out of white sugarpaste with a happy birthday message on it and put it between the bears. I think the result is really cute!.
