The ears on the pan are round, so I had to use frosting and build up pointed ears. Amanda says those are her pieces. :-) Being a perfectionist I can see all the little flaws and I wish I could have done better with the stripes, but I haven't done anything like this before. The pan is made for a bear, and has lines built in for a bear design, so that was interesting. It sure will taste yummy, and the kids think it is the coolest cake ever!
