I searched the Web for original and free cake designs and found this wonderful site! This was a Christmas bear cake that I took to church for our Christmas Treat night. I used a 3- D bear cake pan. I covered the bear with buttercream white icing with a star tip. I used green and red around one ear to look like a hat. Then I used a star tip to make the scarf. I then piped in the eyes, nose and mouth. I then just added a little Christmas foliage on the side for the hat for a little extra.
Thanks for the free cake designs on this wonderful site. I always get great ideas for cakes here!

I made this creation using a stand-up 3D bear pan, a 12″ heart pan and my imagination. Using white homemade buttercream icing and Wilton tip 233 I made the bear’s fur. Using homemade chocolate buttercream icing I iced the heart smooth then used tip 46 for the basket weave and tip 21 for the border.
I made the two roses and the sign using chocolate fondant. After the cakes were decorated and assembled I put strawberries and blueberries around the bear. It was a huge hit at my daughter’s school picnic!
Thanks to this website for free cake designs. I found enough cakes to let my imagination run!
P.S. In order to make a firmer cake that’s still yummy I mixed pound cake batter with regular yellow cake batter.

We watched Big Bear videos with my grandson Michael every time he was at our house. So I knew Big Bear would be his birthday cake for his second birthday. I just watched the videos to get free cake designs.
It was an 11” x 17” cake pan and it takes 2 cake mixes for this size pan. I prefer Duncan Hines cake mixes and always set the oven temperature at 315 degrees so that the cake center will rise flat and even with the sides. I also put wax paper back into the original pan and cover very well and freeze the cakes. They are easier to ice if frozen.
I found a picture of Big Bear and traced it onto wax or parchment paper and transferred it onto the iced cake. Using a tube that is normally used for making grass, I completely covered the Big Bear. I added the details with thinned icing in the colors using round tips and added the writing.
The top and bottom borders are a shell border with an open star tip. I put #3 round tip yellow dots in between on the top border and a #104 tip in between the shells on the bottom border. Michael loved the Big Bear!
Thanks for all the great free cake designs on this site!
