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

Stand-Up Cuddly Bear Cake is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 171.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pan, relatively easy to use, watch oven temp I wanted to make a baby bear cake for my DIL's baby shower but since I had never made a 3D cake before, I decided to use some friends of mine as guinea pigs so I could practice before the big day. I followed the directions and used a pudding in the mix cake. I used the release spray instead of grease and flour and it came out beautifully with very easy cleanup. Apparently my oven temp is off so the core did not bake completely but I threw just the core back in the oven for about 8 minutes and I have a lovely bear. My pan (used) came without the clips but metal binder clips work wonderfully. Please forgive the decorating job. It may need help but that is my inadequacy, not the product's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very versatile I have made many versions of kids cakes using this pan. I've trimmed of the ears and made it look like a baby (new years eve cake) various types of teddy bears and most recently, Daniel Tiger. I do advise using a cake mix and a half and instead of the hollow cone, I run a dowel rod across from one foot to the other and one vertical from top to bottom. I also chill the cake in the pan to makensure it a little firmer before decorating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in the process of making my 8th, 1st Birthday Bear! I have 3 daughters & 5 Granddaughters. I make the bear Pink & White using star tip 18. The eyes are white with blue centers to match the girls. The mouth & nose are brown. I use Betty Crocker Fudge Chocolate Cake Mix & follow the directions. It has always come out perfect. The little paw holds 1 candle perfect. This is a semi-easy cake to make and has become a family tradition. Happy Baking!
