BEAR Cakes: The Original :-)

As you know, I like baking but it usually means baking waffles, regular round cakes or the rare chocolate cake, as I’m just to scared of trying something new. This time however, I tried something different and I baked BEAR cakes 🙂 Now, it’s still the original recipe of a standard cake, but let’s see how it turns out as I’ve added something special to the end result.. Oh and what do you guys think of my apron.. Isn’t is just sooo cute 😀

There are plenty of recipes that you can find online for baking a cake, but I like to stick to the traditional one which includes the following ingredients:

Ingredients: this will provide approx. 10-15 cakes depending on the size of your figures

  • 300g butter
  • 300g sugar
  • 300g self-rising flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2pcs vanilla sugar

You just need to put all of the ingredients into a big bowl and mix it until you have a soft mass. In the meantime, preheat the oven at 180 degrees.

Once the whole mix is ready, divide it over the shapes of your choice (bears in my case) until 2/3 is full. NOTE: remember to butter your shapes and then add some flour so that the dough doesn’t stick!

You can then put the shapes in the oven for about 30-35 minutes. After 30 minutes be sure to check on how they’re looking as it depends a little on your oven but definitely not more than 35 minutes.

To finish off, I’ve added some sweets and caramel topping to the cakes to make then really look like bears 🙂
