My 2nd 3D bear broke - Page 2

If that ever happens again and you end up with only half a bear, why don't you try putting him a top something like a wonder mold and making a dress for her. That would be cute (I think) icon_smile.gif

Has anyone tried the bear with a dream cake recipe (cake mix, dream whip, 4 eggs, 1 cup water)?
Does anyone think this would work?

I'm just about ready to try the bear cake . . .
but now I'm kind of nervous.

The one I did, the legs fell off.

Your bear is cute in the tree.

Try a chocolate or yellow betty crocker cake mix. I have several 3d pans including the bear and that's what I use. I use more than one mix and fill it a little fuller than the directions call for with a cookie sheet under to catch overflow. I've never used pound cake in one of them.

I use the Pillsbury with pudding in mix for my Winnie, Barbie and Care Bear cakes.

I use more batter than it calls for and just put the pan on a cookie sheet to catch the overflow.

I tried this cake extender recipe in several different flavors. This recipe measures out to be about 7 cups when cut in half(just enough for your bear)
http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-13632.html

The french vanilla would not work in the 3D pan, but I think a yellow cake will.
I cut this recipe in half, except for the pudding mix. I used an 8 serving box of vanilla instant pudding to one box of yellow cake mix, 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, 4 eggs etc. This cake felt like pound cake.

I tried this recipe with Devils food, french vanilla, and yellow dough. The yellow felt twice as heavy as all the others. I honestly think the yellow would work in the 3D pan.

Good luck! I know how frustrating it is. I'm new to all this too.

I just used DH mix. I've used choc. and white. The white mix did seem more stable than the choc. I too made it two times. The first time he had no feet.
I used two DHcake mixes and over filled. Worked great. I used the extra mix for CC's Cooling for the exact time inst sheet says is VERY important! I got to antsy the first time. Followed to the minute second time. Had no problems with it second cake!

I too have done this 3D bear cake (the big one) and it took me 3 times to get it right! I also live in Canada and what another CC member (Freddy from Calgary, AB) told me was to find cake mixes that say they have pudding in them already. It will say this right on the box. I have done 2 of these bears now and those seem to work for me! I also add a package of pudding just the dry contents. I think if you do a search under gibson you should find the topic with all of the info, because I have just moved and my instructions are packed away still. The cooling technique is also important IMO. Freddy was the one who helped me through this (as well as other cc members!) but I did exactly what she said and it worked like a dream! I will try and search for this topic I just don't know how to link it back to this forum.......
mazaryk: I tried the dream whip recipe and it did not work for me but it tasted great!
