Teddy Bear Cakes for Every Age

Share on Pinterest
Teddy bears are symbolic of everything sweet, and that’s why they’re the perfect choice for cakes!  Teddy bear cakes make wonderful centerpieces at baby showers, bridal showers, birthday parties and even weddings.  There’s nothing like the cute face of your favorite teddy, or the smile from an old childhood bear that you once loved so much.  Who can resist the sweet charm of a teddy bear?

Teddy Bear Baby Shower Cakes

Teddy bears and babies go hand in hand, so teddy bear cakes are a wonderful choice for baby showers.  We’ve made a variety of teddy bear baby shower cakes, but some of them have unique themes, like this nautical teddy bear cake that we created to match the colors of the party.  The gumpaste teddy sits atop fondant layers of blue (and curled blue waves!).  A sandy beach sits at the base and plenty of sculpted details accent the cute sailor on top.  Ahoy, matey!

We created a similar nautical teddy bear cake for a beach themed baby shower.  This cute teddy had his own sculpted whale buddy below, and even hooked some candy fish on his little fishing pole.

This three-tiered teddy bear cake was created for a baby shower with a New York City theme!  Our bear had his own city cap and Port Authority car sculpted at the base.  Shades of blue, green, brown and white fondant helped accentuate the tiers.  He was delivered all the way to New York City!

Teddy Bear Birthday Cakes and Cupcake Towers

Can you remember your favorite childhood teddy bear?  A client asked us to make a 30th birthday cake for his wife, and he wanted it to look just like her beloved childhood teddy.  Working from the client’s photo, we sculpted a bear with light grey hue fondant and a hint of beige.  He’s even wearing jeans and a red bandanna.

We created another sculpted teddy bear cake for a child’s 2nd birthday party.  This sweet bear was red and yellow fondant and contained chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream filling inside.  He came with matching vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, with coordinating yellow buttercream and red wrappers.

Specialized Teddy Bear Cakes

Teddy bears can make an appearance just about any way you want them to on your own special cake.  Luke needed a gluten-free cake for his 1st birthday, so we created a vintage Americana themed cake complete with an old-time teddy in a little red wagon.  Gluten-free is one of our specialties!  If you need something quick, you can try our gluten-free goodies any time at Pink Cake Box Boutique. Or, if you are looking for a custom cake similar to Luke’s, check out our custom cake guide for being gluten free.
