Teddy Bear Cake
This was a baby shower cake and the only specifications being that it be brown and pink, with buttercream frosting. Teddy bears were the first thing that came to mind! I have a hard time with buttercream; I think fondant is so much easier to work with, but I think this one came out ok. Again, not as smooth as I would have liked it, but ok.
The bear is modeled out of fondant, as is the blanket, blocks and ball. I used the edible markers to make the letters on the blocks, then used a bit of luster dust. For the trim, I used buttercream frosting and the Wilton ruffle technique, using tip 104.
