Toy Story 3 Birthday Cake

We just made this two tier cake for a birthday party in Bayonne NJ. The bottom tier has a white vanilla cake with passion fruit butter cream, and the top tier is chocolate fudge cake with chocolate raspberry cream.

I decorated the bottom tier with a red check design to match Woody's shirt. We sculpted fondant figurines with all our favorite Toy Story characters: Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, as well as the alien, Rex, the slinky dog, and not forgetting Mr and Mrs Potato Head!
