Lego Birthday Cake

What's the quickest way to a 6-year-old's heart? A lego cake, of course.

The boy turned 6 on Saturday, and my Friday night was spent putting together this Lego-inspired cake for his party. Or rather, these Lego men are working hard to put together the cake, which is vanilla with a classic chocolate buttercream icing (because fondant is disgusting and I'm allergic to it).

This smug guy is the foreman. We all know his type...

And these bad dudes are the work of my man, who added a bit of drama to the scene with goal-stealing thugs.

Happy birthday, Hayden!

  3. Leanne, What an amazing cake! Thank you for sharing.
    I think it will make a different but fabulous 21st birthday cake for my son. He was such a Lego fan when he was a little boy, I know he would much prefer it to something traditional.
    Thank you so much for the inspiration!

  15. The best idea I've seen yet and beautifully excecuted, thanks - you have a real design sense; as for what to make for our 6 year old boy...army, dinosaurs, star wars, super mario, lord of the rings, (Winter indoor) asault-course party - we might have to just settle for a chocolate cake with figurines on it!
