Me to You Bear Birthday Cake
This birthday cake was made for Paris, a two year old adorable boy, who celebrated his second birthday yesterday. His mum, my friend Alexia, wanted to decorate his birthday cake with a clay Me to You bear, an idea which was unacceptable by me...(I am sure you understand why...).
It took me approximately 4 hours to make the second cake layer (with the bear) and a total of 6 hours to make the whole cake. You can see the end result in this photo.
The only "problem" was that the bear was a bit heavy, and the only way it could be placed on a cake was laying down.
I used rolled fondant for the cake decoration and a double chocolate fudge recipe for the cake. I will only tell you that my secret ingredient to the fudge cake was Greek yogurt. A magic ingredient according to my point of view :-)
