Younger Son 5th Birthday Cake

Pin It Now!

This is my younger son birthday cake. He is 5 years old now. He likes teddy bear especially small and cute one ^.^ So I create a bear on his cake. My drawing is bad and I definitely don't have the confident to draft the bear on the cake. So I copied and pasted! Then fill with coloured piping jelly. I learn this method from YouTube. My bear turns out not bad right? Ha..ha..:D

I'm using 8' cocoa chiffon cake as the cake body. Once cool completely I divide into 2 parts. Spread whipping cream in between and cover the whole cake. Then keep the frosted cake inside fridge to set for several hours.

As for the bear this is what I did. Place the baking paper (should be long enough to remove once place on cake) on top of the character (bear). Melt some chocolate and put inside piping bag (since the amount is not much, I use baking paper and shape into cone). Gently pipe out the melted chocolate on the baking paper and 'draw' the character. Once done place your 'drawing' on a cardboard (or something hard to support) and keep inside fridge to set (about 30 minutes).

Remove both cake (with frosting) and baking paper with chocolate 'drawing' from fridge. Place the character at the position you like by facing the chocolate 'drawing' against the frosting. Gently remove the baking paper and leave the chocolate character on the cake. Fill in the character with coloured piping jelly as your choice. 

Hope this will help those who like to make birthday cake with your favourite character on it. Have fun!
