Can any one give advice or tips on how to get the 3-d bear pan to come out good. I tried this once and all my batter leaked out the bottom during the baking process. I am so nervous to do it again, but I have no choice. A customer just made the request. I think I am going to use a cake mix recipe that I use pudding in the mix. It is very thick. Does any one know how far to fill the pan up with the batter? Or, how to test it to see if it is done? All help and tips are very much appreciated!! Thanks Girls!!

I have made the little bear a couple of times... Below are links to the Durable Cake for 3D and the Chocolate version. I used the chocolate in my baby bear and black cat cakes...

I used all 4 clips...if you are missing some use binder clips. Mine did not have a stand with it, so I put it in a load pan and used crunched up balls of aluminum for to make it stand level. I filled the little pan about 3/4 full, and baked it at 325. I used a slender skewer to check for doneness. Once done, let it cool in the pan just like it is for about 15 minutes. Then lay it on it's side and take off the clips. Only remove ONE side of the pan, and let that side cool for about 15 minutes. Then put that side back on, turn it over and remove the other side. I did this over and over again until it was completely cooled. I froze mine over night, and decorated in the morning. I used two cut off skewers to put her on the cakes.

Good luck! icon_smile.gif
