I recently was given the following bear cake pan (pictured) with no instructions. I would like for someone who might have the same pan give me instructions on baking, decorating and correct piping tools and maybe some different ideas on decorating the cake...
all ideas and advice is appreciated.

Yes, just no instructions. I'd like to find some different decorating ideas though.

I just made a monkey with the mini bear pan last weekend...(needs some work for next time), but there are some who have made a really cute monkey with it! icon_smile.gif I've also seen bunnies...

I'm trying to make a frog out of this cake. Sadly I can't get the darn thing to come out of the pan right. It keeps cracking off the core. I'm going round two right now... midnight. :-S

Honsently, I don't use the core. Just bake at 325 longer.

Hi Ladies,
I recently used the 3D Teddy Bear pan for a 3D Boy who was holding a mini cake made to look like he'd just been smashed with cake in his face (made it for my brother who's notorious for starting cake fights).

I found getting the cake out of the core near impossible and my cake cracked slightly around the leg thumbsdown.gif as I was unmoulding it so I let cool overnight in half the pan before trying to remove it further. Otherwise, it decorated nicely. See pic here: http://m.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=5714455&id=533807250&fbb=re5122d88&refid=2

i've never had a problem getting my 3d teddys unmolded. what did you use for greasing/spray? if you use crisco and flour lining use a paint brush to get in the crevices really good. other wise i like to use pam spray with flour.

I always use crisco/flour but I don't use a paintbrush (great idea!) I'll try that next time! Thanks ~ thumbs_up.gif

i dont remember where i picked it up at but years ago i found a mixture for coating pans simply called Goop i believe.. its a 1 -1 -1 ratio of oil, crisco and flour mixed together and brushed in. looks bleh smells bleh but works decently. i prefer the pam spray with flour though lol
