This is a special cake for a special little boy. My nephew, PJ, turned 2 years old this week!
The theme of the little guy’s birthday party was Toy Story. PJ is a big fan of Buzz Lightyear and I hope this cake really helped to make his birthday party perfect!
Now, Wilton has a cake pan with Buzz on it. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never had a whole lot of luck with those figure pans looking the way they should. So, I figured that to ensure that this would look good, I should make a layer cake and put the little figures around it.
In order to make the most people happy, I went with a vanilla cake with plain vanilla buttercream (you can find both recipes here). Simple, but so good! On top is a single chocolate chip cupcake – just for the birthday boy – complete with Buzz and candles.
Special thanks to my awesome hubby for helping with the army men decorations (I promise not to tell the birthday boy that you kept a few). LOL!
