Since Christmas I haven't done all that much baking. And no cakes for almost a month! I have a bit of a baking addiction and the withdrawals got a little too much, so it was necessary to make some sort of cake in January to ease the symptoms.
My first foray back into the work of cake decorating in 2012 was this baby shower cake. Made to celebrate the imminent birth of a little baby boy, a blue theme was chosen with exploding hearts and a cute little blue fondant teddy bear. If anyone thinks teddy bears would be difficult to model from fondant, then this is proof that they aren't too bad. After trolling through the internet, I found this pretty good tutorial and this video to guide me. Once the fondant is coloured, the process isn't too arduous and before you know it you have a little teddy bear drying in your kitchen. I must admit, I am quite proud of my teddy bear, and now he is gone I might have to make some more in many different colours.
