The talented Danielle Gotheridge introduces us to her brilliant London Bear Cake which incorporates her famous wrap technique. This tutorial is full of a variety of creative modelling and painting skills that can be translated to a wide range of cake designs. This is a fantastic cake for fans of Paddington Bear as it takes inspiration from many memorable moments in the story. It is suitable for all skill levels as it can be made as simple or as complicated as you like and takes around two half days to make, allowing for drying time.

We would love to see your take on the London Bear Cake – please share your photos with us on our Facebook Page as well as Danielle’s!
