Toy Story Cupcake Tower

I made over 100 cupcakes today for a 3 year olds birthday party.  I loved the theme!  Toy Story 3, with an emphasis on Buzz.  I made aliens, rocket ships and stars.  The round orange thing on top is a really cool moon, I didn't get a great picture of it though.  The aliens were each cut out by hand out of marshmallow fondant, and the eyes were piped with royal icing.  The cake was red velvet and the frosting was cream cheese.  The stars were cut out using a mini cookie cutter (thanks Jen!) and threaded with wire while still soft.  The cake was vegan chocolate (soooo yummy!) and the frosting was homemade marshmallow fondant. The rockets were also cut out by hand, and each little window was punched out with a straw.  The cake was funfetti, and the frosting was almond buttercream.  My friend Jen came over to help make all of the cupcake toppers, thanks again Jen!
