This Lego cake design is so very simple! No special tools or cake decorating skills necessary!
I’m off to spend the next few days at the BlogHer Food conference but I wanted to leave you with this quick tutorial. I posted this Lego Cake on Instagram a few weeks ago for my son’s 4th birthday party. Not too long after that my Facebook feed and inbox started filling up with requests of how to make this design at home. Honestly I wasn’t even going to post this and I just took a few sloppy pictures- I hope you don’t mind me sharing!
Apparently there are other little boys who like Legos. Who knew? They are kind of a big deal I guess. Now you can take this design and run with it. I tried with all my heart to get my son to pick a different frosting color but he insisted on red. So red it was. Wow was it ever!
This is technically a 3 layer cake. I used box mixes. Feel free to use a homemade cake made with the tears of unicorns if you wish. The bottom 2 layers are 9×13 yellow cake. The 3rd 9×13 cake was chocolate and I simply used a biscuit cutter to cut out 6 rounds. I placed them all on top with a dab of frosting. Then I did something crazy and heated my buttercream up to a pourable consistency. In theory this would have worked well if I hadn’t have stopped to snap a quick picture. Don’t do that. Just keep pouring. The frosting hardens quickly.
Or just frost it with a spatula like most normal people do. Whatevs.
A lot of you asked about the little Lego head pops too so I’ll post those next week. Promise!
