Toy Story Buzz & Woody Cake
This is my son’s 2nd birthday cake.
The next time I have a ‘really good’ idea, I need someone to tell me NO!
I got the idea for the cake from the Toy story DVD cover. I liked the idea of a floating Buzz and Woody but knew I needed a space for the cake and so introduced a cardboard box.
I drew up the frame and Mr. Boo kindly made it for me (there was welding involved!!!! )
I modelled the figures using a mix of modelling chocolate and fondant. I am rubbish at faces, so I made moulds of my boys Buzz and Woody’s faces. The ‘cardboard box’ is a 9" cube made out of vanilla sponge and vanilla buttercream. The middle was filled with Smarties . I was intending to make the sponge in a Woody red and yellow check but ran out of time .
I really struggled with this cake. It took me way out of my comfort zone, and it felt like I was on a VERY steep learning curve. BIG shout out to my partner in cake crime Jenna for cheering me along and as always a BIG thank you to Mr. Boo for his help and late night runs to the store!
