I got this fabulous kids' birthday cake book this weekend. My friend Sharon is having a birthday party for her little Beth, so I offered to make a cake. The party is a Teddy Bears' Picnic (all the kids bring a favourite teddy) so I made a teddy bear cake.
The book didn't have a teddy bear, so I used several different cakes to create my bear. I intended to make it brown but couldn't figure out how to, so I used some pink food colouring I had on hand. I was a bit afraid at first that it would look like a pig, but in the end, with the help of some Chocolate Buttons and a Malteser, I think it turned out pretty good.
