I was told this works better with choc. cake or pound, which I have neither at the moment and would like to do this 3D bear cake...

I read somewhere that you can put pudding into a cake to make it dense? anyone know? Need help...Will regular cake be ok for a mini 3D bear pan?
will it hold up???

If you use regular cake, it will be very delicate and the head can come off... a good thing at Halloween, but unnerving at other times. BTDT LOL
If you use cake mixes, try the WASC; if a scratch baker look for the scratch WASC thread.

I used regular cake mix..it was chocolate mind you. I just really made sure that the pan was really coated so it didnt stick...good luck.

My fellow's head came off when I was icing him... of course, I could just have been a little too heavy-handed.

Oh no!!! I did mine with the drop stars so there was no pressure applied..thats too bad. Well thats the good thing about cake, it tastes the same no matter what shape it is in.

It was fine, I just turned him into a murder victim.

(It was for my nephew who likes mysteries, anyway; so it worked out!)
