Makes 4 4x4-inch mini cakes
By:
Ingredients
  • 1 chocolate cake, baked into 8x8-inch tin
  • 1 favourite vanilla frosting
  • Yellow food colouring
  • Crushed Oreos
  • Melted plain chocolate, cooled and transferred into a piping bag
Method
Cake
  1. Create a bear template on a piece of 4x4-inch paper.
  2. Cut the chocolate cake into 4 equal squares measuring 4x4-inch squares. Place the bear template on top and cut out the bears. Split the bears half horizontally.
Frosting
  1. Scoop a third of the frosting aside and mix it with a few pieces of crushed Oreos.
  2. Scoop a tablespoon of frosting and colour it yellow. Transfer into a piping bag.
  3. Scoop two tablespoons of frosting into a piping bag.
  4. Add in some cocoa powder to the remaining frosting to turn it into a chocolate frosting.
Assembly
  1. Place the bottom layer of one bear cake on a rack or a turn table. Spread a little Oreo frosting then top with the top layer of the cake.
  2. Use the chocolate frosting and apply a thin layer of crumb coating all over the cake. Refrigerate till firm, about 30 minutes to 1 hour. Coat the cake with a thicker layer of chocolate frosting, smoothing the surface and the sides as best as possible and refrigerate till firm.
  3. Pipe a little yellow frosting as the ears - use a toothpick to help spread the frosting evenly. Pipe the reserved plain vanilla frosting in the middle. Refrigerate till firm.
  4. Pipe the eyes, nose and mouth using the cooled melted chocolate and refrigerate till firm.
  5. Transfer the cake onto a serving plate and serve!
