A little something I whipped UP

Caleb wanted a Disney Pixar "UP" cake for his 5th birthday. He's been talking about it for months. No pressure of course! Here's what I whipped UP...
The cake board is wrapped in blue wrapping paper with cloud images I printed off the computer. Last, I wrapped it with cellophane wrap. 
A little 3D Up action with confetti cake in a 9x13 cake pan.
Crumb coat with whipped icing.
The final product. Not too shabby for my 3rd ever attempt at cake decorating.
I used a mini cupcake pan for the balloons with mini cupcake foils.
