My son is turning 4 and loves Buzz. Can anyone help me with ideas for a cake?

Thanks so much!

what about a cake that has the solar system on it- you know "to infinity and beyond"
and then you could have buzz in space

I did one but it was just a sheetcake with a rocket and stars. My favorite is the cake that looks like Andy's bed with all the characters sitting on top!

Ladyellam,
I have made the Buzz Lightyear from the last tread that Ski had posted.
You can see the finished cake here:
http://tandoorisjourney.blogspot.com/2008/05/buzz-lightyear-cake-tribute-to-buzz_23.html
because the link posed by Ski is only for the real size Buzz figure that I used for the cake ( Buzz Spaceship, my design)

There are links to all the steps, including the recipes for the layers.
If you have any questions I would be happy to help you!

Ski, thank you! It really means a lot to me that people notice what I do! icon_smile.gif

Thank you so much ladies! I didn't get any of the notices and thought I was by myself icon_confused.gif . Then I remembered I was on the greatest website known to man and my friends at CC wouldn't let me down icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif .

I love all the ideas and I'm going to show Andrew which one he likes. Thanks again and you all rock thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif .

Thank you very much, Kathy! icon_smile.gif Even if not the Buzz Lightyear himself, why don't you try to make the spaceship?

Thanks Daisy and Steffla!! I'm so torn because all of them are so cool looking. Maybe I will take a little of this and that from each picture. T


Thanks again everyone for all of your help!

Girl...you are so nice...I'm so flattered! (oh, and I would be more than happy to help out if you want to try this one. I took pictures of him during the construction process too- ya know...I'm gettin' older and all...sometimes I forget how I did stuff!)

All of your cakes here are amazing! You guys rock!!

You could always do a search for "toy story" too. It may bring up some of the same cakes but could bring up some other ones too!

Have fun! My kids love buzz too! I think we have 7 of the large buzz toys and a few smaller ones!

I use my Wilton Handsome Guy cake pan to make Buzz...a little extra icing around the head to make it wide enough for his "bubble"
