You will need:
- A cake covered with buttercream on a cake drum
- 3 pastry bags with buttercream white, pink and light green
- 2 russian piping nozzles and one piping nozzle to make leaves
- Saracino white modelling paste
- Small Rolling pin
- Baby shoe cutter set
- Edible glue
- Saracino brown colouring powder
- Small scissors
- Saracino pink colouring powder
- 2 black sugar pearls
- Dresden tool
- Gold edible paint
Take one piping bag with a russian piping nozzle and pipe some buttercream flowers to the side of the cake. Your buttercream will need to be a firm mix.
Cover your cake up to the middle and pipe more flowers on just one area. You can pipe using two colours of buttercream; to do this take a piping bag, put the white buttercream on the walls of the bag and then, the pink buttercream in the center.
Take the buttercream piping bag with the leaf nozzle and make some leaves around the cake between the flowers.
To make the baby booties, we are going to use the Saracino white modelling paste. Knead a piece of paste to make it workable.
Roll out the paste with a rolling pin thin enough to cut the pieces.
Tip: If required use cornstarch on the table to avoid the paste sticking.
Cut out the baby bootie pieces. We are making two booties so you will need to cut out two of each piece.
Allow to dry for a few minutes; that way we will get better shape when forming the booties
Using edible glue apply to the front area.
Fix the front piece of the bootie, form a curve in the piece to create the shape of the front of the bootie.
Tip: If required you can fill with tissue or sponge to keep the shape.
Set aside to dry for a few minutes.
Put a little bit edible glue on the sides of the shoe.
Brush some edible glue on the edge of the sole and on the sides of the front piece of the bootie, place the back piece in position and press it so it fixes well.
Take a piece of paste and colour it with edible brown colouring powder
Take a ball of the brown paste and form a slightly elongated shape. This will be the body of the teddy bear.
Put the teddy bear body into the bootie and check that it fits. There should not be too much space around.
With the tip of small scissors, we texture the entire body of the teddy bear.
Put a little edible glue in the sole of the bootie and the fix the body of the teddy bear into the bootie.
Roll 2 small sausages, which will be the arms of the teddy bear. Set aside for later.
Take a piece of paste and colour it with edible pink powder.
Roll out to form a lace with the piece of pink paste.
Pass the lace through the eyelets of the boot.
Stick the arms on the body and texture the same way we did before
Now we are going to make the ears. To do this, make 2 small balls with the brown paste.
Then repeat this with 2 smaller balls of pink paste.
Gently flatten all the balls we have made and glue each pink ball onto each brown ball.
Make a ball to form the head and a small cylinder for the mouth area. Use 2 black sugar pearls for the eyes.
Glue the mouth area onto the head.
Put some edible glue in the area of the ears and glue them in place.
Make a small ball with brown paste to make the nose.
Make 2 small holes where we will place the sugar pearls for the eyes, put a little edible glue and stick them.
Mark with a dresden tool the smile of the teddy bear.
Texturize the whole head.
Stick your head on the piece that we have already made.
Make a body for another teddy bear, which we will place inside the other bootie. In this case, the bear will go “upside down”
For this teddy bear we only need to make 2 legs and a tail.
Stick the legs and tail in place, so that it seems that the teddy bear got into the bootie head first, and texturise as the other items.
We make some small balls with pink paste to form the bear’s footprint
With a little gold paint colour the edge of the cake.
We can also give a golden touch on buttercream flowers.
Place the booties on the cake.
