My niece wants a bear cake next week for her bd, no details, just something bear. I'd love to carve one, especially since it would be practice for the beaver I'd like to make. I don't have a pan. I was thinking about using 6" stacked rounds and making a small bear to put on a double layer round cake that I could decorate somehow with my new still in the box cuz I'm afraid I'll break it airbrush. It's the parts that stick out like the snout that I'm not sure will work, the whole neck and head seem likely to fall. Can anyone tell me how to do it? Does anyone have a pattern or directions or helpful advice? Thanks
Kavingate just did one for her daughter and she has a two pics on flickr. She said she made the head and arms and legs out of rice krispy treats the body was made using the doll pan.
The monkey tutorial here
can easily be made into a bear. Make the nose a little pointier and change the ears up. I made it using 3" tall 8" rounds and the sports ball pan.
