Buzz Lightyear Birthday
I've been looking forward to working on this Birthday cake and cupcakes for a while - who doesn't love Toy Story?! Buzz Lightyear cake with matching green alien cupcakes! Bottom tier of cake was vanilla buttermilk cake with vanilla buttercream icing, top tier was chocolate truffle cake with chocolate buttercream icing, all covered in white fondant. All the cutouts, trim and decorations you see are fondant except for the wings toward the back of the cake - those were made using gum paste. Buzz is not a gum paste or fondant figure - picked him up from the local Target! :) Cupcakes were vanilla buttermilk topped by vanilla buttercream icing. I used candy eyes and melted green candy wafers to make their antennae so everything on the cupcakes was edible!
