This Buzz Lightyear Cake was for my son’s (1 of twins) 4th birthday. Baking, building and icing the cakes are a huge effort between me (artist) and my husband (in construction)!
I used two 25cm ring cake pans and a big Pyrex glass bowl (test-bake this part beforehand if you are using a big bowl) for the space mobile. Nigella has a delicious buttermilk cake recipe which holds very well. I always use gel or powder colouring. The colours are much more vibrant.
I like printing and laminating parts of the cakes like in this case, the fins of the space mobile.
