Build-A-Bear Cake

When my daughter turned 7 we had her party at Build-A-Bear.  Along with a big group of friends, they each picked out a bear or animal of their choice to create.  After stuffing, fluffing, and naming their new friend, we went to the food court for cake to celebrate.  To go along with the theme, I created this fun cake.

I frosted the outside of the cake with vanilla buttercream tinted purple.  

The turquoise accents were also buttercream.  
I used a #21 decorating tip to created the star shapes

The rhinestone ribbon I found at my local Hobby Lobby.  You can find it HERE.

The bear was created out of fondant.  
I started with a box of Wilton pre-made fondant and tinted it the colors I needed.

I hope you enjoy this cake and wish you and your kiddos many fun celebrations!
