This Buzz bust cake was inspired by a very sweet little boy who loves Toy Story.
It`s a personal sized cake (a 9x13 slab cut into 4 pieces and I just stacked two of them), the other pieces were saved to make pops!
I covered the cake first in a thicker layer of white fondant, then dusted the center with powdered sugar, then a thin square cut out of white and then topped it with yellow. I then placed a circle on the center at the top and used a very sharp blade to score even sections on the circle. Be sure not to press to hard or you will see the lines through (like on mine).
Once you have cut then you can peel back and use cotton balls to form the triangles so they stay standing up. I then used a quilting tool and made the diamonds on Woody`s shirt and painted on the stitching. I used a Buzz doll to replicate the figurine and used thick flower wire to ensure the arms stayed the right way!
Then added the belt. So much fun and he LOVED it, grandparents pulled out their phones right away to snap pictures before he got too into it! (this was just a personal gift for a special little boy).
I got the idea for this cake from this website. I made the cake for my nephew's 3rd birthday. He loves Buzz Lightyear and he had a special request for me to put lots of candy on the cake. The party was for 50 people so I had to make it quite large. The first layer is 14" X 16" and it is homemade carrot cake (double recipe) which the adults at the party appreciated. Then I made a circle cake out of chocolate cake mix and a vanilla cake baked in a pyrex bowl for the final layer. This was done by someone else on this website. I used black food colouring to make black icing for the spaceship and blue to outline around the edges. I then used lots of candy to decorate, normally I would use icing but because my nephew requested it I used candy and turned out well and was easy to do. I ordered a stencil for the front part of the cake from a link attached to this website and you just peal it off and place it on your icing and it turns into a kind of gummy icing with the picture on it.
My son asked for a Buzz Light Year cake for his 3rd birthday. I always look on Coolest Cakes. com for ideas for every birthday. I found a nice cake a woman made of just a Buzz, but instead of following her lead and making a template first and tracing, I went free hand the whole way. Took about 5 hours then 2 more the next morning so his head would not look weird.
My husband cried when he saw it and my son... well his face was priceless. I used a simple chocolate cake recipe on the coco package and then A LOT of butter cream icing and colored to fit what I needed. I also used different tips from a piping set.
I baked it in one rectangle pan and one 9inch round cake pan, the triangle I sliced out of it on the top part I added to the bottom side for the alien to sit on and continued the planet over in orange icing.
It was fun time making this Buzz Light Year Cake Design and tasted great. Well worth the time for the face on my son.
