Just wanted to suggest a tip. When making your teddy bear cake with the Wilton Teddy Bear Stand Up Mold, make sure that your cake mix does not make a very moist cake! I tried a generic cake mix brand thinking it would be drier than my regular DH mix and it turned out too moist. I thought once it completely cooled I would be able to secure it with frosting and it might hold up better. I left the cake in a cool room and when I returned to check on it I noticed that the head fell off!!!! Surgery was not successful, the head ended up sinking to the base board splitting the rest of the bear shape. Luckily I made it the day before I needed it and had time to make a new cake and it turned out beautifully.
