Here you are going to see how I made the small parts for the cake. Before we start I should mention, that if you have letter embosser, your work is going to be much, much more easier. I don't have one, so I had to do each letter by hand. First I printed the picture of the letters from Internet, then with the needle tool I punctured trough it onto the fondant and finally I cut with bot small paper scissors and a palette knife. It was very difficult and frustrating, and the result is not satisfying for me, so my advise( and note to self)- buy an embosser!
Here are the ready letters and the small "picture pins" that I made for the wings:
You can see the "pins" up close here:
This part I cut out of fondant, added the "rocket" body so it would look like a 3D, then I let it dry for a couple of minutes and painted it with food colors on top:
Then I "glued" everything with water
I apologize once again for the bad quality of the pictures, I am getting a new camera soon!
I forgot to take a picture of the 2 black stripes on the side, the one has " Space" the other "Ranger" sign.
And front view again:

Ladies and Gentlemen, now is the moment of truth, would Buzz like his new ship or not :-)
Light, camera, action:
Buzz sure likes to be a model ( a top model I would say ;-) )
And at this point my camera died and I couldn't take a single picture after that.
Now I am waiting my very good friend whom I called (again) at night time, to bring her camera and take couple of pictures. I will post them when I have them :-)
I would really appreciate your comments and if you want to know how I did this or that, just ask!
Since a lot of people are asking, I guess the links I've posted in the posts are not visible enough, so here are the instructions how to make my Buzz Lightyear cake
