Step 1

In advance: Tint 16 oz. fondant as follows: 12 oz. brown, 2 oz. light brown, 1 oz. black; reserve 1 oz. white. Make bears.

Step 2

Bake and cool 3-layer cakes using firm-textured batter such as pound cake (use three 2 in. high layers; trim 1 layer to 1 in. high to create 5 in. high cakes). Use knife to trim sides of 6 in. cake to create a 5 x 5 in. square. Ice cakes smooth and prepare for Globe Pillar Set Construction. Tint 20 oz. fondant as follows: 8 oz. yellow, 4 oz. green, 4 oz. rose, 4 oz. blue. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Cut 10 each 3/4 x 5 in. and 3/4 x 3 1/2 in. yellow strips. Attach to top and side edges of 5 in. cake with dots of icing. Divide 10 in. cake top and sides into 5 in. squares. Mark pillar placement on top of 10 in. cake using 6 in. square plate. Cut 6 each 3/4 x 5 in. and 3/4 x 3 1/2 in. strips in each color; attach to cake top and side edges as for 5 in. cake. Use cutters from set to cut 2 each B, A, B, Y, small heart and small star in assorted colors; cut 1 medium circle to place under baby topper. Attach all with icing. Insert pillars into 10 in. cake over marked areas and position bears. Use remaining fondant colors to cut 2 triangles (1/2 x 1 in.) and a tip 12 circle for each bow tie. Attach to bears with damp brush.

Step 3

Getting His Bearings Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this darling cake for a baby shower & had so many rave reviews! One thing I made a mistake of doing was putting it on the round turntable. Once it was off the turntable, the fondant was too long so it buckled a bit on the bottom. I had to remove the bottom trim then cut the inslde piece shorter which was a little difficult. so, don't make that mistake! Other than that, it was a piece of cake & toooo cute!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake turned out awesome. There were many compliments on it from the shower guests. I made cut out teddy bear cookies for favors to carry out the teddy bear theme. I love working with the rolled fondant. It makes such crisp, clean cutouts. I couldn't find the globes to make the bears on so I cut them out of brown fondant and attached them to 4" pillars. One on front and one on back of each pillar. Made their faces with the write on food markers. This matched with the favors also. Fun, fun, fun.
