I made this Teddy Bear Picnic cake for my 2 year old’s birthday. A friend had seen something similar and sent me a photo so I gave it a go. The cake is a basic circular chocolate cake, which, I then covered in chocolate cream cheese and butter icing and finished with marshmallow fondant icing.
My fondant icing didn’t turn out as well as I hoped, it was a bit sticky, not sure if that comes from the climate I live in, Singapore. For the teddy bears I just looked up images of cartoon bears and tried to copy them using coloured sugar paste icing. I bought the sugar paste and added colours to suit the bears.
It did take a long time to make all the little bits and pieces but my girls had fun putting all the picnic together on top of the cake. I did have a problem with all the little children at the party wanting a bear each to eat!
