Has anyone tried this? Have a cake to do for this week with a monkey on it, and was considering using the mini-bear pan. I'd appreciate any input!!
I found these on the web.
ETA: I have not tried it personally.
Awesome! Thanks juleebug & cake_geek! I will definitely post pics when I'm done this weekend. I really appreciate the help!
OK, I did it! She was a chunky little monkey, but I think she came out ok! It was my first time playing with fondant (hands, feet, face, ears, belly, bows, bananas and tail) I think I liked the bananas better than the monkey! (Thanks cakegeek for the inspiration on this! I think a smaller grass tip would have worked better on the small bear, size-wise - I think that's why she's so chunky looking...(either that or she ate too much the cake she's sitting on! haha! ) And I learned that I should not use fondant accents on whipped cream icing...too much moisture in the icing and she was sweating, hence the run off of dk brown on her belly, etc. - luckily it was ok, but any longer and she would have been a little mushy mess! Oh well! 'Hannah Banana' loved it! That's what counts!
Anyhow - THANK YOU so much for all the tips and ideas! I learn more and more on every cake and this was no exception!
Ok - tried attaching pic...too big for forums...here's the link to gallery pic.
