Prepare 500 g FunCakes Mix for Cookies according to instructions on the package and knead in FunCakes Sugar Strands. Wrap the dough in cling film and let it stiffen in the refrigerator for one hour.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C convection oven).
Knead the dough from the fridge and roll it out with Magic Roll-out powder to a thickness of about 2-3 mm, cut out bears and place them on the baking sheet. Bake the cookies in about 10-12 minutes light brown and let them cool flat on the counter.
Knead the fondant well, if necessary mix some brown and white for a lighter color for the legs/ears. Cut out shapes for the legs and ears with the oval plungers and make them smaller if necessary by taking a small edge off with the plunger.
Roll out the brown, white and ivory fondant and cut out bears with the cutter. Stick this with a little warmed apricot jam on the cookies. To give the bears some effect you can prick the fondant with the nozzle #018 to give it a coat effect. Stick the ovals on the legs and ears with some edible glue.
For the snout, roll a small piece of fondant into a ball and flatten it between your fingers. Stick this on the head. Push above the snout with the back of the brush two holes and glue two black pearls in them.
For the nose you color a piece of brown fondant darker brown with the coloring gel. Make little noses of this piece and glue it with some edible glue on the snout. With the brown edible marker finish the snout.
