This was a great cake for my daughters 2nd b-day. However, I doubled the chocolate almond cake recipe from Taste of Home's Complete Guide to Baking rather than use a box cake. I also used the round Wilton pans that held enough batter to make the head and tummy. I also wound up with my light brown coconut being as dark as my dark coconut, so I used all of it to cover the bear and used untinted coconut for the lighter areas. Overall, it was a wonderful birthday cake.
