Weird man cake for DC birthday

I love how my DC likes odd stuff but for their 6 th birthday they've asked for a Balthazar Bratt cake from Despicable me 3. I have no idea where to even start, there are no rice paper things with his image or even cake toppers or anything vaguely linked to this character and I just can't afford to pay a professional cake maker. Any tips anyone?

You can get pictures printed onto cakes in Asda - never had it done but I know they do it.

Asda print any picture on to a cake

There are DM3 toys inside Kinder eggs at the moment, could that work as a topper?

What about buying some small plastic Despicable Me figures, including the weird man (!) and sticking them on top of a cake? They can keep the toys afterwards..
I did similar when my son asked for a Star Wars cake and all his friends said it was "awesome". Which is praise indeed from 9 year-olds. grin

I meant Nigella sorry.

I tried to do a Doctor Who cake in Asda once, and got told that I couldn't because of photo copyright. Personal photos only, maybe that's just the rule at my local Asda though.

eBay sellers will print images onto icing

Just search 'photo icing'

Thanks all, I've looked into the kinder toy thing, turns out this character is pretty rare and hard to come. I guess they didn't think an 80's relic with a 'Tash and mullet would be a hit with kids, little did they know! I'll google rice paper printing and see if anyone does it thank you.
