For this bear you will need gray, white, and blue fondant (or any colors that match your parties theme). You will want to start with a rectangular shape for the body and a round ball for the head of the bear.

Attach the head to the body with some water. You may want to place a small down through the body and into the head for support.

Then make two matching logs for the legs and attach with more water. (Note you do not need a lot of water just enough to wet the surface of what you are trying to attach).

Now make two small matching half moon shapes for ears and attach to the head.

Lastly, make two matching logs slightly larger than you made the legs and attach as the arms of the bear. Now you have the basic body of the bear and are ready to add the details to make him pop.

The next step is to take a small oval or white fondant and attach to the head to make the muzzle. On top of that attach a smaller blue oval and imprint to small holes for the bears nostrils. I also added a patch detail and stitching to the bears body at this point to make it look more like a teddy bear. This step is optional depending on the look you want.

The next step is to take blue fondant and add small paw pads to the bears hands and feet. I again added stitching to the pads to match the rest of the bear.

I then went in with black edible food paint and highlighted the stitching marks on the bears pads, and his patch. I also added the blacks of his eyes above his muzzle.

The last and very important step is to add a dot of white to the black of the bears eyes. This will make the bears eyes pop and look more realistic.

Now that you have completed your adorable bear you can add him to the top of your cake. If you want to tie in the baby theme more try adding a pacifier to the bears mouth or have him holding a baby blanket.
