Chocolate Teddy Bear Cake




I love Chocolate and Teddy Bears.This cake is really easy to make and really tasty to eat.Its a really good idea for a kids cake.I used Cream icing.Its more simple to make than other icings.

 
Cake Flour(Maida)- 100gm
Butter                    - 100gm




Eggs                      -  2
Sugar                     - 100gm(powdered)
Cocoa Powder      -  40gm
Baking powder      -  1 tsp

For icing
Fresh Cream    - 2 cups
Icing Sugar       - 1 cup  or as required
Cocoa Powder
Biscuits            -2 (Any round biscuits will do)
Small round toffee for making the eyes and buttons.( I used Gems)

Beat the butter and sugar until the sugar dissolves completely.Separate the eggs and add the yolk to the butter.Slowly beat up the eggs until the mixture is smooth.Sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.Now add the flour to the batter and mix well.In a separate bowl beat the egg whites until the egg white becomes firm.Now add the egg white to the the cake batter and fold.Be careful to only fold and not beat the mixture.For making a teddy bear cake you need two kinds of cake tins a rectangular and a round one.Prepare the tins by buttering and putting some flour on them.Pour the batter into the tin and bake in a preheated oven.The temperature and time varies according the oven.Once the cakes are baked , cut the rectangular cake as shown and arrange them as in the diagram

For icing

Beat together the fresh cream and sugar.beat it for a long time until the mixture becomes thick.Now see if it is sweet enough.If not add more sugar until the mixture is sweet.Since we need white icing and chocolate icing you must separate some of the icing into another bowl.Into the bowl with more icing add the cocoa powder.Then check if the sweetness is correct.If not add more sugar.

Decoration

Once the cakes are aligned as shown.Cut a small strip on the round cake parallel to the surface.This is for inserting the biscuits to make the ears of the teddy bear.Now pour the chocolate icing on the cake and spread it evenly.Then apply the white icing as in the picture.Make the eyes and buttons using the candy.The yummy cake is ready.
