Our church small group recently threw a surprise going away party for our friend who is going on a missions trip to Australia for the rest of the year. In keeping with the Australian theme, I made a koala bear cake. The inside is Funfetti cake mix–two 8″ round cakes on top of each other. I baked another two 8″ round cakes and cut the ear and nose shapes from those. The icing is Wilton’s buttercream recipe with heavy cream instead of milk.
