DIY Lego Head Cake

Big E was 7 on Sunday, how that happened I have no idea, but he requested a Lego Head cake for his birthday, which was a relief given that last year it was an ATAT!


I made 2 x 20cm deep chocolate sponges , cut them in half, layered them with Jam and butter cream, stacked them then iced them with yellow fondant.


The face is painted on with the gel food colouring and the nobble on the top is a slab of fondant.


The aspect ratio is wrong (this lego man has been eating all the cakes...) but the birthday boy was pleased! If I was making it again I would use a smaller cake tin!


Now to try and find a home for the mountain of Lego he got...!
