Upright Bear Cake

While the whole world is busy preparing for Christmas on Christmas Eve, I was busy making this cake for a friend's daughter. Not that I am complaining, in fact I rather enjoy spending a day away from work just indulging in what I love most.....baking and decorating cakes. I can't explain how but the squeezing of piping bag does help me to relax.

This cake has a round base with a bear and 2 doggies sitting on it. The round base cake is baked using a 10in round pan while the bear is cake baked using a bear mould. The bear is attached to the cake using spagetti. The 2 doggies are made of fondant. The biggest challenge in decorating this cake piping on the upright bear. As the piping has to be done at 90 degrease, the icing does not stick properly on to the cake.

you have done a wonderful job. It is not easy to make the bear upright. I was having problem handling the fondant while trying to make a cake for my mum birthday. It is very sticky. Did you make the fondant yourself or bought the ready made one?
