3D Cuddly Bear Cake Pan Uses
In the beginning of my journey into cake decorating, I discovered the Wilton 3D Cuddly Bear Cake Pan. I was so excited to produce such a beautiful cake with my new found decorating skills. This cake pan gave me the confidence to continue baking after a lull in inspiration. If you are looking for a pan to help you create a cake with the ultimate WOW factor, this is just what you need! This pan can be a little difficult to use and I shared my secrets in this post. Sad to say this pan has been sitting in my pantry accumulating dust ever since. I just have not had any requests for bear cakes lately. In an attempt to rid myself of clutter, I began to give away cake pans I no longer use. I just couldn't give away this pan though. I absolutely love what it does! So I decided to find alternate uses for this awesome pan. Here's a little inspiration for my fellow novice bakers with this pan in their inventory.
