Introduction: Teddy Bear Cake

This super cute Teddy Bear Cake is both adorable and incredibly simple to create! It's the perfect centerpiece for a little boy or girl's birthday party and can be fully decorated and ready in half an hour.

What you need:

  • a serving plate
  • a piping bag with a large star tip
  • a round cake
  • two cup cakes
  • golden marzipan
  • chocolate frosting
  • sweets and chocolates for features

Step 1: Getting Your Cake Base Ready

Place your cake in the center of the serving plate (if you are baking the cake yourself, make sure that it is totally cooled before decorating). Click here for my favourite sponge cake recipe!

Step 2: Cupcake Ears

Using a little frosting as glue, stick each cupcake on either side of the cake to look like two ears.

Step 3: Marzipan Molding

Take your marzipan and mold it into a triangular shape. Again, using some frosting as glue, stick the marzipan triangle onto the bottom of your cake to make the snout of your bear.

Step 4: More Marzipan Molding

Next, you want to form two flat disc shapes out of marzipan and stick them to each 'ear' (don't worry if they're not perfect looking - the icing will fix that later on).

Step 5: Frost Your Cake

Now for the fun part! Fill your piping bag with chocolate frosting and using a large star shaped tip, pipe little spikes or 'fur' around the marzipan shapes, and ultimately covering the entire cake.

Step 6: Give Your Bear a Face

Once you're done icing your cake, the last thing to do is give your bear some features! For the eyes on my one I used two malteasers (though there are plenty of other things you can use from chocolate buttons to fruit gums) and for the nose I used a heart shaped chocolate. For my bear's smile I used a long sweet, but again there are loads of alternatives like licorice or even melted chocolate piped into a mouth shape.

Step 7: You're Done!
