Today I’m going to share an adorable Teddy Bear themed cake tutorial that would be PERFECT for baby showers and young birthdays!
I love sweet and simple cake designs, and this is one that is suitable for for any skill level of cake decorating. We hope that you enjoy it!
The cake in this tutorial is a 4 layer double barrel 6 inch cake, frosted in our Fluffy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting recipe. However, the sweet teddy bear cake design could be transferred to cakes of all shapes and sizes, and would even be adorable for a sheet cake!
This sweet teddy bear cake design is created by applying a fondant template to our buttercream frosted cake, however you could easily recreate the design using all fondant (and either crusting buttercream or royal icing for the piped accents.)
Be sure to check out our materials list & additional notes below. We hope that you enjoy the tutorial!
You can adjust this design to fit any size cake. The cake in this video tutorial is a six inch 4 layer cake (double barrel), frosted in Fluffy Vanilla Buttercream. (The cake is sitting on it’s own cardboard cake circle cut down to size. The bottom two layers have 4 bubble tea straws within them to support the top two layers. The top 2 layers are sitting on their own cardboard cake circle cut to size. I smoothed the buttercream using the Viva Paper Towel Method. Use your method of choice for smoothing.
