Skylanders Cake Featuring Trigger Happy

This cake was really really fun to make. Alex's mother came to me with a unique idea for her son's birthday. I called it unique because I had no clue who or what Skylanders is. Esther was very kind to provide me tons of images as reference and she did mention that Trigger Happy was Alex's favorite characters from the game. The cake I think is pretty simple. What was most challenging is getting Trigger Happy right. Surprisingly, I especially had fun making Trigger Happy. A little proud moment since this was really something out of my league and I really think he just looks like the real Trigger Happy. Confession: I couldnt help it, I took maybe 20 something shots of him. Cupcakes with the Elemets went in with the cake. Cake and cupcakes were both vanilla and chocolate flavored. :)

This cake is great!  Love it!  Could you share how you did all the gears hes's sitting on?  I understand sculpting, but did you start with a ball of fondant and then cut out the gears with a tool?  You didn't have an impression mat or mold, did you?  I'm so curious!  

Wait! now I see! You made the gears and pasted them onto the hill he's on! Clever! Looks great!
