My son just had a camping themed birthday party and I wanted to make a special cake for him. After searching the internet and Pinterest we decided that a bear cake would be perfect! Even though this cake looks difficult, it's one of the easiest I've ever done! You can totally do it too!
I came across an adorable polar bear cake here. I loved it and decided it would be the cake to use as inspiration for my son's.
I'm not that great at printables and I don't have the money to buy them so I do my best. These were made in my word program. I just made text boxes and filled them in with different patterns and free clipart.
If you are looking for a little change in your standard construction cake, here is one I did using the same technique as I used on my other construction cakes...but this time I changed the colors a bit! Check it out!
Here is the original cake I posted. And here is a tutorial for a similar cake if you want to know how to do this yourself.
Just changing the colors a bit gave it a totally different feel. I actually ended up using my cousin's construction vehicles once we got to her house. They were red and blue and looked adorable.
How cute is this? My friend gave me a gift card to Hobby Lobby so I went shopping! Check out what I bought! I picked up a large chalk board and hung it in my kitchen. I also grabbed 2 sets of chalk markers so I would be able to decorate with ease. My husband added some cheap molding around it so that it had a more substantial frame and I painted it to match the other trim in the house. Then it was time for some fun.....decorating the chalk board!
This was the first thing I put on it. The kids thought it was funny that the house rules included things like have fun and laugh. I actually searched Pinterest for sayings about "home" and this was the one I liked best.
It makes such a cute backdrop for photos of the kids too.
My little one loves the Pig King from Angry Birds so he asked me to make him a cake with him as the main focus. I had no clue how to do this but I stumbled through it and it turned out pretty cute. Here is what my little one's cake looked like for his super fun Angry Birds party!
Ta-dah! One homemade (and not perfect) King Piggy cake! He loved it!
Here's what I did...
I made a 4 layer cake, alternating yellow and chocolate. And I put homemade chocolate buttercream in between each layer. I used wrapping paper to cover my cake board.
