I have a question on this. After looking at her uniced cake you see the top cake (the one that makes the top of the bears head) is doamed. If your cake bakes up flat, how would you create that round part of the head between the ears?
For the domed part between the ears I would just use up some of the carved leftovers, mix it with a little buttercream (like for cakepops) and just sculpt a little dome. Alternatively, you can get 3D bear cake pans which would make things easier if you're not too great at carving. Cheers, J
For the dome part I think it´s because the round cake rose in the oven while cooking, she didn't level it. An other solution might be to cook the cake in a bowl (for exemple a Pyrex bowl that has a round bottom) don ´t know if you see what I mean. Otherwise, like me_me1 said you can do a" cakepop paste" that you sape like you want. HTH
