Last year for Talia's birthday she requested a pink fairy castle cake. I had great fun making it and it turned out brilliantly, little did I know however that I had set myself a standard and cool birthday cakes that take HOURS were now expected............... Last year Kalem requested a Bart Simpson cake and this year it was a Lego cake. To be honest Lego cake had me baffled for quite a while and I had no idea what to do. After searching the internet for ideas for WEEKS..... I came across a picture of some cupcakes decorated with Lego shapes. Not sure where I found this, but the idea stuck with me, I didn't do cupcakes but used the idea to make a cake. Here is the birthday boy's LEGO cake moments before a gang of rowdy 8 year olds tore into it......................... Errr and yes it did take 1 or 2 hours of effort to make the little shapes out of icing, but it was a bit like playing with playdoh so I didn't mind!! Plus Kalem was absolutely thrilled so it was worth it.
Just a simple chocolate cake for his birthday tomorrow with not a drop of scary food colouring in sight.
ps. if anybody is wanting to make either a fairy castle or Bart Simpson cake then let me know and I can tell you how I made mine, I also have photo's........... X
