This was a fun cake to do. I had the help from a girl I worked with who generously donated her kitchen space to make a mess in! We used a pound cake for the bear in a molded pan so there would be now carving needed. He (the bear) ended up being a little too heavy for the bottom layers and started to lean as the day progressed. The blocks, bottle, and duck were made out of solid fondant. The icing was your standard Icing sugar, vanilla, shortening, butter mixture and it was rot your teeth sweet!
