I was asked to make a 3d bear for a college graduate. the problem is i have never done anything in 3d that i would have to carve. i need help and lots of it. i was hoping that if anyone could possibly show me some pointers on how to come about this situation. i would greatly appreciate it.
Wilton makes a 3D bear cake pan. You can usually find the on Ebay too. HTH
Why don't you get the Wilton 3D bear pan, you can order it here:
I just bought it and it works great( i used it for my Phillies Phanatic cake, adapted of course), i suggest doing a pound cake in it and only use 6 2/3 cups of batter ( the first time i filled it all the way and it exploded!!!)
If you get the Wilton bear pan be sure to grease and flour it well (or, use a spray on like Bakers Joy). On my second bear, I didnt, and I had a heck of a time getting it out of the pan in one piece around the face area.
I've made a couple bear cakes, and with mine, I used one box of flavored cake mix (like butter pecan) and one box of pound cake mix, mixed together it worked really well.
