I am making a Winnie the Pooh cake for my 3 year old's birthday. I've bought a great 3D Winnie the Pooh cake pan, but it's on the small side, so I'd like to place the Pooh Bear on top of a round cake.
The 3D Pooh cake directions say to keep a funnel, which is used in baking, inside Pooh Bear even while serving.
But I wonder if Pooh Bear will sit politely on the round cake all by himself, with just frosting to coax him into place? I have visions of him tumbling off while I carry the cake to the birthday girl. Can you think of a better way to secure him?
Thanks for your thoughts.
you could secure him with a dowel...
I fill the funnel with cake batter and bake it to have a cake plug to place into the cake... so the whole thing is cake. A dowel through the pooh and the round would be a good idea to keep him from moving.
Great idea about filling the funnel. How does one use a dowel for a cake???
Kriswrite, I've just used a 3 dowels to sit Pooh onto a cake and it was good. I actually traveled 15 miles to my granny's house with it and it didn't budge.
You could also do Pooh in chocolate sitting on the cake, I did one like this but it was Mickey Mouse ( it is in my gallery). Just another idea...
