My son Logan is a Lego fanatic! He spends hours building sets and his own creations. So it was fun and fitting to make a Lego cake for his 10th birthday party! Plus I earned some BIG "cool mom" points with Logan for this one.
Using 4 cakes mixes total, I made 5 cakes in loaf pans and 12 cupcakes. I filled the loaf pans two thirds full and the cupcakes less than half full. The loaf pans took longer than a 9x13 to bake. I didn't watch the time though so I can't tell you just how long. They were a great shape for Lego Bricks with the cupcakes as the pegs. I used toothpicks to help keep the cupcakes in place while I frosted the "bricks" with bright colored frosting. I stacked them and added a handful of the real thing around the cakes.
When he saw the cake, my neighbor's son commented "I'm having that kind of cake for my birthday too." His birthday is in September. Guess he's planning ahead!
