ok. i made a maderia cake in the large stand up bear wilton tin. not a problem. until i relised that the lady who ordered it wanted a chocalte cake! panic!!! so i had to re make it. but as soon as i took out the heating core and stood the cake up to make in into a dragon cake, (in the yearbook) the whole thing colapsed on me. has any one else had this happen, or do you think that the cake was to heavy to stand, as the first one was fine.

There was a post on this a long time ago. The poor bear's head fell off! You may need to use a pound cake for it. http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-18207-standup.html+bear+pan

I am pretty sure that the directions say to use a pound cake mix. I usually use pound cake and yellow cake mix together so that its sturdy and moist.
I tell people they can only get van. Ive never mixed choc cake with van pound yet but that might be another option.

That darned teddy bear pan screws me every time! I have given up on it. Good luck.
