Someone asked for a bear cake topper and I wanted to use the wilton teddy bear pan, but I really don't like the arms and legs of that pan. I wanted to cut them off but how do you put the legs so they don't look like they are coming out of the sides I want them to come out front. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

i would try cutting some of the belly out and fitting the legs in the front and carve the sides where the legs were to balance out the bear i hope this helps

You could forgo the pan and freehand carve it. Just a thought.

just do a normal shaped cake and make a teddy bear to sit on top of it out of moelling paste. None of the hassle of carving but it would look really nice icon_cool.gif

I agree with just making a bear out of modelling paste. It's so much cleaner looking and easier to do than one out of cake. Here's one that I did recently:
