When it comes to birthday partiers there are very few things that are universal for kids of differing ages and genders. From Monster High to Marvel Superheros it’s next to impossible to find a consensus among kids as to what they like. There is one thing that every kid at one time or another loves though and that is teddy bears.
What kid didn’t grow up with at least one bear that was attached to them everywhere they went the way an adult does with their smartphone? For most it was their first love, well after you, their parent.
So why not tap into that by making a teddy bear themed birthday cake?
Yes, it sounds daunting and time consuming and, we won’t lie to you, it will be. But we’ve found a few ways to make it a little less of both. Oh, and don’t worry, we’ve found examples for both the beginner and the weekend baking warrior among us.
