Teddy Bear Cake Tutorial





Let's make a Teddy Bear Cake!



When I first made a Teddy bear cake it was in 2012.

It was a tatty teddy cake/Me to You Bear and I posted a simple tutorial in my blog..it went crazy! my grey teddy bear cake got famous hehe

Since then I've been getting so many requests on the full tutorial.

Now it's 2018! I have been postponing it for too long..it is FINALLY here!

To be honest I wasn't too happy with this brown bear..when I did the bear the weather here was super hot and humid!

Of course, with me trying to save some dollars, I used some left over Swiss Meringue Buttercream to make this bear. Not the smartest move! I had problems with blobs and melted icing all over my hand :(

That is why I decided to use both tip#233 and #234.

#233 is the smaller grass tip and #234 is larger one.

I needed to finish piping quicker before the icing started to melt everywhere lol.

So if you asked me which icing is best for this cake design?

I would say American Buttercream. I found they are more stable and crust well..even during hot weather.

However, as you can see you can still use Swiss Meringue buttercream (which I did). But I would not recommend it at all during hot weather :D

Template for this cake is available to purchase from Etsy.

Beauty and the Beast cake topper Tutorial





Hi! Hope you all have been well!

Here is a tutorial to show you how I made Beast cake topper (a cute version!) from Beauty and the Beast movie character.



Do you know that Beast actually has a tail? I only realised that when I was making him! :D  In this tutorial I decided not to add the tail on him since you can't really see the back. However if you like him to have a tail, you can add that in!



The material that I used in this tutorial is fondant.

I used water to glue the fondant paste together.

Thumper Rabbit Cake Topper Tutorial



Thumper, one of my all time favourite disney character from the movie Bambi!



Here is a tutorial to show you how easy it is to make Thumper.

This topper will be perfect for Easter theme cupcakes/cakes or even Birthday or Baby Shower.



Oh one thing I forgot to include in the video, I added some lines along side of the cheeks. I used the same tool (boning tool) I used to create the line on the chest to create the cheek lines.



I hope that you like this video, please leave me comments if you have any questions.
