Toy Story Birthday Cake

A few years ago I made a Toy Story birthday cake for my son. It featured a handmade Buzz Lightyear sitting on top of the cake. This one figure took me almost three hours to make and whilst he looked OK, he wasn't all that! Therefore when I was asked to make a Toy Story cake a few weeks ago I decided to keep it simple, and I'm so glad I did because I am really pleased with how it turned out. The figures are a pretty good likeness and although they took a little while to make, I did not lose three hours over each one!

I loved making Mr Potato Head. It was tempting to put all of his features in the wrong place but I left him pretty much intact. Hamm the pig was the trickiest as I had to get him to stand on his four little legs without toppling over due to the weight of his big head. I haven't worked out how to make Slinky yet, but I'm thinking about him for next time.

Happy birthday Kevin!
