For our daughter’s 1st birthday, we decided that we wanted to have a panda party (she loves pandas). I found a 3D Wilton cake mold in the shape of a bear. I used yellow cake mix from a box and store bought icing.
After the bear cooled I used a hair tip to make the fur in black and white. Then just added the final touches in pink. It turned out so good and it matched everything else at the party like the hand made pinata. We got tons of compliments.
