Toy Story Cake for Jacob

I had a request for another Toy Story cake, similar to my first one but with taller tiers. The bottom layer is chocolate cake with chocolate filling, the top is vanilla cake with vanilla filling. The whole thing is frosted and decorated with vanilla buttercream.

The red details are actually fondant, which I have only ever used for my first Toy Story cake. I like to create details in frosting for the most part. Sometimes I think fondant looks too much like play-doh on a cake. But for this cake, I wanted a nice flat red surface for the Toy Story Logo, and then just used it for the other little red circle details.

I hope Jacob likes his cake! His mom is planning to add some Toy Story figurines, so I left the blue top surface undecorated so she could arrange all the little guys there.
