polar bear cake

When we asked her what she wanted for her 5th birthday, she threw us a challenge that we weren't ready for--a polar bear. At first, we did not have a clue. Shaped pans were extremely expensive for a single use. Then a friend suggested eBay! The cake pan suddenly became affordable. We found a cute pan available for $7.00 by the time we paid for shipping. This beat anything we could find in the stores.

The cake itself is a simple white cake mix. Frosting was homemade with a little extra powdered sugar and water in the frosting. That was the only way we could get a white for the fur that closely matched the translucence of polar bear fur. (trust me our daughter would know the difference)

Features are done with simple chocolate chips. The cake tasted and looked great! The only suggestion I would make is, if you are cutting the frosting that thin as we did you should be aware it will harden quickly. It was still good with ice cream but by itself it would have become a little crunchy.

It was a fun cake for a fun birthday!


There are many unique ways to create a polar bear cake that looks like or resembles a polar bear. When creating this type of cake, it is important to ensure that you integrate the features of the snow that is present in the artic, the water that is in the environment, as well as the bears. You may also elect to integrate other types of animals that are commonly in the areas where the polar bears frequent, such as the walrus and the seals. By looking through the pictures on this page, you have likely come to a conclusion on how you can create your own polar bear cake. If not, the following instructions may help you:

Instructions on Creating Polar Bear Birthday Cakes

Items Needed:

  • Round Cake Pan
  • White Cake Mix
  • White Fondant
  • White Glitter Dust
  • Blue Fondant
  • Blue Glitter Dust
  • White Icing
  • Three Dimensional Polar Bear Fondant Cake Toppers

Step 1: Place the white cake mix batter in the round cake pan and bake based on the steps listed on the mix box. Once baked, allow the cake to cool.

Step 2: Use the white icing to completely cover the cake.

Step 3: Place white fondant in a bowl and mix a large amount of the white glitter dust to create the “snow” or “artic sheets” for the cake.

Step 4: Place the blue fondant in a bowl and mix a large amount of the blue glitter dust to create the “water” for the cake.

Step 5: Roll out the blue fondant with glitter dust and place it over the entire cake.

Step 6: Roll out the white fondant with glitter dust, but, make sure it is thicker than the blue fondant was. Then, cut out sections that will act as the “snow” or the “artic sheets” on the cake. Once the pieces look like these items, place them on the cake, allowing some of them to roll down the sides of the cake. Make sure that there are spaces between the sheets.

Step 7: Place the three dimensional white polar bear fondant cake toppers on the white fondant that you have placed on the cake.
