Rated 4 out of 5 by Momvanbeek from Buzz Lightyear My oldest Grandson was turning 3 and he wanted a Buzz Lightyear cake. I have taken 4 series of Wilton lessons at Michaels, so I felt pretty comfortable taking this on. I downloaded and printed both the supply list and the directions and followed them closely. I printed out the color picture from Wilton and thusly had no issue with a "reverse" print that some of you had. I put Buzz on top of a 2 layer filled cake base, covered in fondant and then personalized it with fondant cut outs. It was a lot of work spread out over 3 days, but it turned out beautiful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by 77shortcake from I have only taken Wilton course 1, so I wasn't sure I could handle this. My son LOVES Buzz, so I was willing to give it a try. The hardest thing for me was only using a tip 1 for the outline. The line was so small it didn't show up like in the picture. So, after adding all the colors, I reoutlined with tip 3. Much better! The cake turned out great and my son was thrilled!

Rated 4 out of 5 by trulycanadiangal from I coloured the icing, and baked the cake the day before which still took a few hours to do. The second day I did all the icing, which was a lot more time consuming then I excepted. (4-5 hours) The mirror image was a bit difficult to figure out, but in the end the cake turned out amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by hjrsunflower from As a whole, I really enjoyed doing this cake! I had difficulty, like most others, with the mirror-image I had to work from. I also was frustrated in the beginning with the outlining and trying to get all of the little details on there. After the outlining, the rest wasn't difficult at all. I did my colors a couple of days in advance to make sure that they were correct and was very happy with my results. The colors were perfect and the cake turned out fantastic! I was very proud of myself, considering this was the first character cake I've done. My son is 3 and absolutely loves Toy Story, so this was perfect for his birthday! Definately worth the trouble!

Rated 4 out of 5 by netherlander from I made the icing ahead of time, which was a great benefit on the day of making the cake. When I read other people saying that the mirror image is very difficult, I thought how hard could it be... well after a few color errors, I just made the cake how I thought it would work out. This cake has many details. Make sure you have enough couplers in order to switch out the tips, this was time consuming. The cake turned out fine, but surely not like the one shown. The eyes are hard and take time and precision. Making the grey was hard because it did not take as much coloring as I thought it would, so I had a lot left over. So go easy on the black coloring. I also did the simple yellow. The instructions tell you to combine the two colors of red, but I did not think it was essential enough to buy another color for. It is a fun cake to make, but take your time! Do not wait to do it the day of the party!
