I have never used the core in my bears or my trees, it just takes a little longer to bake but it makes it firmer and holds together better.

frstech: really?...no core?...i do find the core annoying...it baked through evenly?..maybe i should try that next time.

yes, we do it all the time with our stand up trees and bears, you can see the trees in my pic that is a winter scene.

OMG, THIS THREAD REALLY MADE MY DAY! LOL . Poor Teddy...is there such a thing as a Teddy Funeral? And ge978 you crack me up! I can just see your child covered in PS. Don't feel bad though...my kitchen is black and white but when I bake, it's all white!

princessjellybean: I wish I could post a picture of him...he was a mess! He's 18 mos & whenever I make icing he's at the mixer with one of his plastic spoons trying to stick it in the icing. Good thing I don't bake at the house too often icon_lol.gif
ape: I'm not sure I can move on until I get it right icon_biggrin.gif I might be right back here posting a pick of Teddy's brother.

Okay guys ...wish me luck!! I'm going to try it without the core(thanks frstech) using a yellow mix. No, I haven't got the poundcake yet, but I figured I will just try the mix again. What's the worst that can happen? icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

ChrisJ: I won't admit this to my husband, but I'm kind of glad this happened...I really needed a good laugh..but shhh.gif

Again, if anyone wants to stop me from making a 2nd mistake you have about 6-7 minutes until I pour the mix in...of course it probably won't do any good because I'm like a bad little child who doesn't listen icon_surprised.gif

Jamessweetie: You are hilarious!! I will definitely post my pic of teddy when he comes out. I have to admit I've had more fun baking today than I have in awhile. You can only post a pic if its a disaster icon_lol.gif ...which it won't be of course..you do very beautiful work!

Okay, Teddy the Sequel has about 20 minutes left baking, then I'll let him cool for awhile and we will see how it goes thumbs_up.gif

You know ge??.... I was looking thru your photos being the nosey ole thing I am... but you had some football cookies... Gave me an idea! icon_confused.gif you could make those cake balls into cake footballs... Holy brainstorm... then basketball season put orange coloring into whitealmond bark and make little basketballs... wonder if they would turn out??

Helendelk: That is a very creative idea...of course I'm not going to be the first to try it icon_lol.gif

Have you all seen the new Swiss Colony?? There are some lady bugs in there that are too cute of course I am thinking these could be made out of CAKE BALLS! As I continued to look through there were basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, carrots,and easter eggs, my mind almost exploded thinking of all the cake ball creations I could make!!

ge- I am going out to dinner with DH for valentines day-yes that is right I said valentines day!! I will check on teddy's progress when I get back!

YEAH!!!! His brother looks great! Is he for anything special or was he for practice? Because...I am thinking he would look very cute with a pile of cake balls around him!

Teddy is actually for my nephew's birthday tomorrow. He absolutely had to have a panda bear icon_lol.gif Of course dummy me says " I've never tried a stand up one, I'll make him one of those". If I could keep my mouth shut, I wouldn't get myself into so much trouble.

Right now I have a 9' double round cake & Teddy going on top.Because of the "incident", I don't have as much time to decorate. Anyone got some quick & easy ideas for the bottom cake?

I am definitely posting a picture when he's done....you guys have kept me laughing through all of this. Usually I would be ready to give up by now, but this has been too much fun!!

Helendelk Posted 4 Mar 2006 , 1:50am

make the round cake look like a tree stump... use brown icing and kind swirl it around like a tree then add some leaves or something... Seems like that would be quick enough... Panda's do like trees .. or sitting on a big rock..

sorry it took so long to get back Helendelk: I've been working on TeddyII...he's actually coming out pretty good. However, I just ran out of powdered sugar & I can't find my leaf tip so I think I'll have to finish him tomorrow.
Thanks for the idea on the tree stump - hopefully I'll have enough time to ice the cake let alone decorate it icon_biggrin.gif
By the way, how's Ducky doing? I hope he came out for you.

Stay tuned: The saga continues tomorrow......

lol... the duck joined Mr Teddy 1 ..... DH sat there and saw me stick skewer into mr Duck and saw it came out clean then when I dumped him out of pan...lol one side looked good.. then dumped other side ........ icon_eek.gif ooooey gooooeyy lol so like real quick threw that half of pan back on quick and kind scooped him and all his inards back in and threw it back in oven.. took it out of oven again..looked good but fell in 3 pieces... so hmmm thats no good.. so I cut those pieces in 1/2 and kinda laid him back together and gonna just put half of him on a cake and just use a LOT of icing to survive him...lol I was just doing it for fun anyway.. I froze them along with a 9' round cake and will decorate sometime this weekend... Lord knows I need the practice.... I'm sure everyone has a disaster on their first 3-d pan... Im glad Mr Teddy2 is turning out! Can't wait to see him.........
