This delectable DIY polar bear cake comes from foodie blog 'Handmade Charlotte.' Unlike most cake-related confections, this creation blends baking with arts and crafts, which adds an air of childhood fun to this sugary dessert. This two-layer cake has been covered in buttercream icing.

The piping for this cake is relatively easy, but time consuming. It's been done in a way that cleverly makes the icing look like fur. This cutesy bear cake was topped off with fondant eyes, and a fondant nose and tongue. To make this adorable sweet look even better, the chef has created a little paper fish (which the polar bear seems to be licking his lips at), and a tiny paper sign that simply reads "yum."

This polar bear confection is great for Christmas gatherings or birthday parties for kids. Stats for Cutesy Bear Confections Trending: Older & Mild
