Toy Story Cake

This is Matthew's 3rd birthday cake, inspired by Toy Story 2 ~
To infintiy and beyond!
Matthew is a huge Buzz Lightyear, Sheriff Woody and Cowgirl Jessie fan, so this was the perfect cake for him.

Buzz Lightyear meteor and the 2nd tier are both chocolate fudge flavored cake crumb coated with chocolate buttercream.

All accents are made out of Fondant and are edible excluding the characters: Buzz Lightyear, Zurg, Alien, Bulls-Eye, Woody, Jessie and Rex.

Blue Marlin Cake

I made this cake for my Dad’s birthday.  Top tier is a cake dummy covered in fondant, added for extra height and dimension.  Bottom tier is chocolate fudge flavoured, crumb coated in vanilla buttercream and covered with chocolate fondant.  The Blue Marlin is sculpted out of gum paste, brown sugar is used to replicate sand and all decorations, excluding the flags, are edible.  The cake was inspired by this sculpture my parents have and after their favorite vacation destination, Barbados.
