In my online travels I’ve come across several Buzz Lightyear cakes. I thought it would be cool to feature some of them in a post. To my surprise there are many more Buzz Lightyear cakes out there than I ever thought possible. More than I expected, and more than I will end up featuring here. But, instead of one post, there are more than enough for at least 4-5 posts.
I’ve grouped them into categories. Today’s category is what we’ll call “Bursting” because apparently a popular feature of custom Buzz cakes is to have him bursting out of the top of the cake itself.
Before we get into today’s cakes, and start the series, I’d like to go ahead and present the most famous Buzz Lightyear cake ever made. Prepare yourself.
I’m getting this monstrosity out of the way first because sure as the world, every other reader will send me this picture or ask me if I’ve seen it. My opinion on this cake? It’s so bad it’s amazing. This is exactly what I imagined the man under my bed looked like when I was a child. Take a moment and pray for poor Ezrah who I’m sure is still seeing a therapist regularly.
Now on with the show. Enjoy these Bursting Buzz birthday cakes!
I like this one because he’s apparently busting through a representation of Woody. He also has Rodney Dangerfield eyes which is always a nice touch.
This one is great except his neck is awfully thin making it look like he’s being choked and his head is about to explode.
Easily the best of the bunch this round. Excellently done.
This one is fine I suppose… but the red is an unfortunate choice of color. Makes it look like a chestburster from Alien.
Homie’s got a long face. Excellent work on the suit. He’s really composed considering he’s sinking to his death in that star-spangled quick sand.
This one is really well done except for those teeth. Looks like his dentures are falling out. Also more chest bursting red.
This one is just fine except that his eyes have been sucked out of their sockets by the negative air pressure that happens when you remove his dome to fast.
This Buzz was obviously modeled after this guy:
So I’ll give them a pass for how fat he looks. Actually you know what? He looks like a Sontaran from Doctor Who. See:
So that makes it super cool. A potato-headed dwarf plus M&M’s? What’s not to love?
This Buzz is missing his chin curl. There’s also that one alien who looks like he’s up to something. And on a personal note… Niklis? Really? You’ve doomed your child to having people misspell his name for his entire life. This trend of giving kids last names as first names has got to end. I”m talking to you Tucker!
There is just something not right about that chin. It looks almost skeletal. He’s giving us the thumbs up to let us know that it doesn’t hurt. Being a chestburster Buzz is painless.
The Buzz on this one is a favorite. Looks really good. Can’t say the same for the dead alien in the middle there.
I hope Goran enjoyed this cake before he destroyed Tokyo.
Another good looking Buzz. He’s downright cute! The LGM have gorilla arms though and they always look like they’ve just heard a good Yo Mama joke. OOOooohhhhh burn!!!
This Buzz reminds me of those overly tanned old guys trying to look sexy down at the gym. He’s got that come hither look that just creeps me out. The M&M’s aren’t helping this guy. He’s a chestburster on top of everything else.
This Buzz is very nervous and if you look at him just right… it looks like he has pointy little octopus legs… like Ursula.
This cake wins the award for the most chestburster gore. Guts and everything. It’s a shame because he’s actually done up pretty well. Good face.
Saved the best for last. This one-armed wonder is bursting out of a birthday present and has a beak like a parrot. It looks like he’s pulling out a wedgie with that other arm with a facial expression to match. You go present bursting Buzz!
Well, that’s it folks. Till next time. What was your favorite cake? Agree, disagree? Let me know in the comments.
