Our daughter is obsessed with all the Toy Story movies! She sleeps with Woody and Jessie every night. With her 3rd birthday approaching, I started looking for a great cake idea for her Toy Story party. I looked though several blogs and found my inspiration here...
I started by making two 9 inch white cakes and two 6 inch chocolate cakes. I chilled them overnight so they would stay moist and be easier to frost.
I have had enough trouble with cake sticking to the pan, so I am all about parchment! I also put small squares of parchment under the edge of the cake to keep my platter clean while decorating.
I could totally eat it just like this- a butter cream sandwich!
Frost the bottom layer then add the top layer and cover with another layer of frosting.
I then chilled the cake after putting on a crumb coat and applied a second coat of frosting about 1 hour later.
The day before, I whipped up a batch of Marshamallow Fondant and colored half brown and half black. I made long snakes of brown fondant and twisted them into ropes. Then I made bunch of cow spots and applied all over the cake.
I chilled the cake overnight and then pulled it out of the fridge a couple hours before the party and added a few toys to the top to make it official! Pretty easy- and I was very happy with how it turned out!
Happy 3rd Birthday to my favorite Cowgirl!!
