Buzz Lightyear Spaceship Cake

Here’s an easy and inexpensive cake to make for your Buzz Lightyear fan. No special cake pans are required; the design is very basic.

I modeled this cake after a toy I found through a google search.

Bake your favorite cake in a 13 x 9 pan. Allow your baked cake to cool 10 minutes, then invert onto a baking sheet.

Cut the cake into three sections.

Move the 2 small pieces from the top of your rocket down to the base…attach them with a couple dollops of icing.

Crumb coat the entire cake.

Etch guide lines into the iced cake with a wooden skewer. Then decorate with colored icing.

I added a couple of small clean PVC figures to my cake. Not amazing so much, but definitely fun and easy!!

See? So simple. And I promise, your little spaceranger will love it!

These gorgeous pink and white Mickey Mouse cookies were given in lieu of cards at my family’s Valentine party this year. My favorite aunt brought them.

She used the cookie recipe on the Disney site and topped them with a colorful rolled fondant. The cookies turned out perfectly and looked too good to eat! Somehow, we all managed. 😉

I’ve copied Disney’s butter cookie recipe here:

Ingredients

2 cups of butter (4 sticks)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 egg yolks
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract, optional
4 1/2 cups unbleached flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

Beat butter together with the sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy.

Add egg yolks and extracts and mix well.

Sift flour and salt together and add to butter mixture, beating until just combined. Wrap well with plastic and chill until firm (if rolling or shaping).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To make cookie cutter cookies chill dough until firm (at least 1 hour). Roll dough to about 1/2 inch thick and cut with cookie cutters. Place on cookie sheets and bake for 10 minutes.

Cool on waxed paper and decorate
