I don't have a lot to say about this cake, except that I made it for a very special little girl who will ALWAYS hold a place in my heart!
I made it with chocolate cake and butter cream icing, and covered it in fondant. It was my very first "box" cake and I found that covering a square in fondant is SO MUCH harder than covering a round cake. I made the sides separate and then pressed them to the sides of the cake. Next time I will let them dry longer so they will have a bit more strength , especially before trying to drive it 2 1/2 hours away! The sides did buckle a little because they weren't dry enough. Like I said this was my first experience in doing this, so lesson learned. I seem to be having a lot of "firsts" lately with cake decorating....and I always seem to learn a lesson from it when I'm done. lol. The bear's head was cake also, and the whole thing stood approximately 12 inches high and a 12 inches wide. Hope you like it!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SWEET GIRL!
