Intro: Lego Cake(s)
A lego cake is a great way to celebrate mother's day, birthdays, game themed parties and much much more! I will explain how you can create this fun cake yourself!
Step 1: Materials Needed
You can create a cake from scratch or use your favorite mix. Sometimes I like to jut make it easy on myself and Pillsbury is my friend. Bake the cake to the package directions in a 11 X 15 pan, make as many blocks as you like.
You will need large marshmallows (I am a fan of Jet Puff by craft)
Frosting (I make my own butter cream but you can use a store brand)
Food Dye to create your Lego color
Piping Bag and Tips
Step 2: Creating Your Lego
After you have made your cake, take your marshmallows and pipe a small dot on the bottom and place them on top of the cake. This will hold them in place as you pipe on your color.
I used Wilton tips and bags to pipe. You can see the tip I used in the picture.
Simply pipe the entire cake and marshmallows. Use bright colors so you get that Lego block feel. This cake was being made for a birthday so the child's name is piped on, but you could pipe on anything you want the cake to say or nothing at all.
As you can see I made more than one block and cut some in half. I placed them all on a large cake board.
Step 3: Tips and Thoughts
If you are a fondant kinda gal you could easily do the same cake using fondant. I'm just not a huge fondant fan.
Don't forget your mom on mothers day, she is the building block of who you are what a great way to show her you remember!
