He gets nicknamed Cub, so I made a very manly vanilla sponge with a fondant bear and a mini bunting banner.
this recipe (as it is lovely and easy), iced it with buttercream and then lined the sides with giant milkybar buttons. Mmm.
I made the bear by mixing green and red fondant (bought from sainsburys), and piping his wee face and paws with chocolate. There is a skewer running through the bear to keep his head on (and luckily I remembered to warn everyone before someone tried to eat it one go!).this lovely blog, playing about with the colours in print until they looked good together, and changing the size until I was happy that they wouldn't overwhelm the cake. I used bbq skewers and string to hold it all up. Easy!
It is SUCH an easy cake to do as you don't have to worry about making the buttercream neat - the giant buttons cover everything up nicely. & most importantly, it went down well!
