Toy Story Extravaganza!

Posted by Jennifer at 1:17 PM
Liz and Daniel told me that they wanted a Toy Story themed cake and set of cupcakes for their daughter's 2nd birthday. I thought it was perfect timing because I just saw Toy Story 3 in theaters (it was awesome!). Because they needed around 30 cupcakes, I thought I'd made a few different characters out of marshmallow fondant as cupcake toppers. This first picture shows the main cupcake toppers and then I laced the edges of the cupcakes with matching colored sprinkles (which, incidentally makes it difficult to see the toppers in some of the cupcakes). The second picture shows all of the cupcakes together and Olivea was the birthday girl. Half of the cupcakes were Red Velvet flavored and the other half were White Chip Cake.
This last picture is Liv's smash cake (which ended up being a normal sized cake... what can I say? I have a special place in my heart for this family :) This cake is actually covered in buttercream with only marshmallow fondant accents so that Liv could just reach on in there and get messy. Ironically, she's a REALLY clean little chic so she didn't even want to her little hands messy. I heard she did a lot of staring and not so much touching. Haha. The "Liv Birthday 2" is supposed to mimic the Toy Story 2 logo and the clouds are from the wallpaper in Andy's room. The cake was Rainbow Bright Cake (vanilla cake dyed different colors and layered with buttercream and sprinkles). Although Liz and Daniel didn't get the messy pictures they wanted, they did love the cake, and that's all that matters :)
