I made this cake for a babyshower last Friday.  I really wanted to create something funky yet adorable, so I came up with a slice of cake with adorable fondant bear toppers.  The cake came out bigger than I thought it would as I ended up stacking 4 layers of cake.  It was then frosted and covered with fondant. Green ruffle is buttercream.

I made the bears ahead of time out of fondant and painted the paws, the nose and the eyes with black food coloring.  The top bear is mama bear holding the newborn cub in her arms.  The bottom bear is papa bear.  The mother decided to keep the bear toppers so she can use them as cake toppers for the baby’s first year cake.

This cake was actually 4 layer of chocolate cake with two fillings of chocolate mousse and one layer of “dulce de leche” (similar to caramel).  It was so yummy!!
