Baby bear

baby shower bearFriends Jen and Pat, who call themselves Mama and Papa bear are expecting a baby bear. And it’s going to be a girl!
For their baby shower, I made this polka-dot two-tiered cake, resplendent with a pink fondant bow and a pink fondant bear. Sweet!

Beary sweet wedding

chocwedding& bearsI made this cake for a couple who had a tiny wedding — just family — with a small dinner for six after the ceremony. They provided me with the cute bear topper and told me their favourite flavour was chocolate. I made a simple cake with a poured chocolate ganache to cover it, and decided to add a small, round tier to the top to make it look more wedding-ish. The happy bears sat tidily on top of that. Then a few peach-coloured buttercream roses encircling the bears and some buttercream squiggles and shells. Happy days!
