Brainy Bear Cake is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made this for granddaughter in school colors (kelly green robe) and it turned out great, although I had some difficulty attaching the diploma - a bit more detailed instructions for that part would be helpful. Thanks for a cute idea --- the recipient was pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made this Bear mold cake for both of my kids on their first birthday, and now they are young adults. This is a wonderful ideal for a graduation cake. I have never thought of this. I think I will try this. Also, you may want to put a guitar in the bears arms as if playing for someone who loves playing guitars in a band for their Birthday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made it for my son's Kindergarten celebration party and all the kid's (and their parents) loved it! Just encountered one snag: At the time I iced the cake I did not have plastic dowel rods, so I used wooden dowel rods - the rods was to heavy and the vibration of the car caused them to fall off, luckily I had icing left thus I filled the holes where the rods were and piped and iced the arms over the belly with one hand holding the diploma.
