Baking Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F. You will need approximately 6 2/3 cups batter. This Stand-Up Cuddly Bear cake bakes best using a batter that is firm, but not too heavy. We recommend using a pound cake mix and a 2-layer cake mix combined. Place mixes in a bowl, add all the ingredients specified on the boxes and mix. Measure batter and place in bear pan. Use any remaining batter to bake cupcakes. Note: some bakers prefer leaving the baking core inside the cake. If you choose to do this, do not grease the inside of the baking core and do not bake any batter in the core. Once the cake is cool, cover the metal tabs with icing when decorating.

Generously coat the inside of both pan halves and both the inside and outside of the baking core using Wilton Cake Release. Fasten pan halves together with clips, making sure the halves fit snugly together. Place pan on cookie sheet. Pour 6 cups of cake batter into pan. Cake fills out best when batter rises and overflows slightly while baking. Insert baking core into center. Secure core by slipping tabs of longer prongs under the sides of the pan. Pour 2/3 cup batter into core. Bake 50-60 minutes. Do not overbake.

Remove from oven. Cool upside down on rack 5-10 minutes. Trim excess cake level with bottom of pan.Lie cake pan on cooling rack. Remove clips and remove front of pan to release steam. Replace front of pan. Flip over and remove back of pan to release steam. Stand cake and pans upright and cool 15 minutes. Remove pans; gently remove the baking core and the baked cake center. Set cake upright and cool 1 additional hour.

Place the cake center inside the bear, filling any empty areas with buttercream icing. Position cake upright on plate and secure to plate with icing or melted candy. Your bear cake is now ready to decorate

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Daughter and I have done this cake on numerous occasions for baby showers and birthdays. For baby showers, we have set this cute teddy atop a two layer cake dived by the baby blocks (normally used as favors) expectant mothers love them. Would love to attach a photo of this cake. We have also added such things as the teddy holding a pea pod with a small baby and pea's in it, (the pea pod and pea's made of fondant). This teddy has went to baby showers holding balloons, pacifiers, spoons, and rattlers. We love to use the small favors on the cake, and tell the mothers to take them home. They make a great craft item for a small lamp shade, for the babies room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was my first ever cake that I made that wasn't just a plain jane cake. I love it!! It was for my daughters birthday and she requested a stand up teddy bear cake. Luckily I found Wilton products at Hobby Lobby. I loved that the instructions are really easy to follow (which someone like me needs that). I also love that it feeds more people than I thought. The combination of the two cakes is really good. More people commented on how cute and good it tasted than any other food that I have made before..Great stuff..Next time I hope to make something really great also..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made this several times. It is very easy. I have also used this pan to make many other caracters. The best thing I have found out is to use a firm cake batter and let cool until very cool. I have used this cake to make a Blues Clues dog along with rice crispies treats for my granddaughters 2nd birthday. I have used part of this cake and other shaped pans to make a Max and Ruby cakes for my granddaughters 3rd birthday. She and everyone at the parties were amazed. I am now awaiting for my granddaughters idea for her 4th birthday which will be in August.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a time-consuming project, but it's so worth it. And it's really easy to personalize. I made a color flow remote control to add under his arm, for my son's first birthday. He loves anything with buttons. I always like to star outline any change-in-style areas, so I don't plow right over them. In other words, the areas where it needs to be a different color or texture. It's also fun to give Cuddly bear a shirt. Just smooth ice the area first, them star tip around to cover up any ragged edges. So versatile. The mini stand-up bear as well, for smaller groups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used the "Stand Up Bear' on a baby shower cake, it was the top tier of a three tier cake. I used the 12" and the 8" square pans, On the bottom tier I used a bear cookie cutter to out line a shape of two bears sitting in grass on two sides, with edible toys and bottles. The other two sides I did clothes line with edilbe onsies. The second tier had the word BABY and a clothes line edble image. On top I bulit up icing clouds and set the bear on top. Their were plastic bottles on the corners, balloons. The bear had edible diaper pins, and bow on her head, and a plastic "That's A Girl" rattle in the bear's paws . Hint: suggest using a 9" or 10" square, or maybe scewer the bottom paws. I lost one Paw during delivery. All turned out well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everytime I have a cake request for a first birthday, I recommend the 'Stand-Up Cuddly Bear Cake'. I sit this cute lil bear of any color on top of another cake so that the first birthday girl or boy can have their own cake to eat anyway that they would like, leaving the rest of the cake for the guest. The parents love this idea and the birthday child has a blast with their very own cake. I have made numerous 'lil bear cakes', a big hit at any party.. A cake decorator cannot go wrong with this birthday cake, it's a party within a party.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved doing this little guy for a baby shower. The cake was easy to bake. The decorating was easy and the little guy was just adorable. I have since done this for several showers as a food table centerpiece. You can make the diaper white or change it up for a boy or girl to blue or pink. Pacifiers in his mouth are cute also. One other way to change the bear up a bit is to do a pair one for a bride and one for a groom. These are great for bridal showers. You can even put a tiny bouquet of flowers in the bride bears hand.
