Toy Story 3 Cake

This is the cake my friend and I made for her sons' birthday yesterday. We got the idea from this blog. Our cake was made using two 11x15 cakes, vanilla and chocolate flavored.

My favorite part were the two figurines laying down. It felt like Andy just threw them on his bed and ran out. We made the bed lumpy on purpose as we thought it looked more realistic of how it would look if Andy made it.

The pillowcases were made out of fondant, with mini marshmallows as the stuffing. The detail on the side was made using a special fondant cuter. The headboard was cardboard covered in fondant with the names piped in royal icing.

The bed posts were fondant covered pretzel rods, and the wood floor was made using the same fondant. The wood floor was a last minute addition but we thought it would look better than the white cake board.

The boys LOVED their cake, as did everyone at the party. But more importantly we had a blast making it and can't wait to do it again!
