Purple Bears

These bears were made awhile back for our hospice's BEAR camp for grieving children. I made 100 of these guys - vanilla with vanilla frosting and light purple bears, and chocolate with chocolate frosting with darker purple bears. I first made swirls that on their own look a lot like the Mickey Mouse icon, then piped on the muzzle and eyes, finishing with the black nose, iris of the eye, and "smile". I used store-bought black frosting, but it ran a bit which I didn't like. Next time I use black, I'll use chocolate frosting with black food color - hopefully, that won't bleed and will taste better as well.
