This is my most recent cake attempt! It was for my little sisters 12th birthday. She is a bear lover and requested that I make her a panda bear cake (your welcome mom!). I wanted to make it pink and white, but she stated that when it comes to bears she "likes them to be realistic."
The cake template and instructions can be found here.
I made her a travel pillow (or Trillow as my brother dubbed it). I added some super fun games (Monopoly Deal and Pictureka), a Hannah montana folder and some personalized note cards (like THESE but with a bear in a plant pot). I designed a panda bear holding a heart on the computer, printed it out and then printed a birthday message on the back and cut it out for her card.
