I pulled the headboard/footboard template off of cc. I changed it up a little and cut it out of gumpaste. My bed was 1/2 of a quarter sheet---so it measured about 6x8. You have to make sure your headboard is a little wider than your bed, what eversize you make both. I put my bed on a 12x12 square to get the servings I needed. I'm not sure what other help you need. I did not do a toy box, so maybe someone else can help you with that.

post #6 of 9 floor is butter cream. I airbrushed it brown, then took a wide paint brush and brushed the cake to give it the wood grain effect. The icing must be cold for this to work.

I did the Toy Story bed cake too. I used a template here on CC and enlarged it to the size I wanted. My cake was 11x15 on a 19x26 board (I couldn't get smaller one) covered in fondant I made to look like wood. I didn't make a toy box, but it's just a rectangular box. I'd say just figure out the dimensions you want, colour gumpaste brown, cut out the sides and top of the box and let them dry hard. Then glaze it with a vodka-brown colouring mix. That's what I did with my head board. Once it's the colour you want, and dried hard, then "glue" it together with either royal icing or gum glue. If you want to glue it first, then I'd let the gumpaste dry enough that it will hold it's shape then glue it nd glaze it afterwards.
