I'm sorry @Savage_steel, but the cake I'll be bringing when I visit you will not look like that ;-)
I must be a bit of a stickler for reality under unrealistic circumstances because that advert where they claim shreddies are knitted by grannies has me shouting at the screen...shreddies are quite OBVIOUSLY woven not knitted! where are the loops? knitting has loops!

@MrBerre - please remember that, "MOC discussions are indeed welcome here so long as they bring value and foster discussion. However, threads created to simply publicize or showcase your own or even someone else's MOCs are not." (Excerpt from Forum FAQ)
All that being said, I imagine that we might be able to glean some good ideas and techniques from discussion, should any arise. Thus, I'll go ahead and move this to "Building and Techniques" and we'll see what develops. :o)
Heck... even the ice cubes crumble :/
As for the LEGO Man Ice Cube Tray, the little LEGO men are about minifigure size so I'm not sure they'd help much. Heck, they don't even make worthwhile ice cubes. :o) And I'm quite positive it would melt in your oven long before it produced any cake goodness. :o)
I could find a photo if anyone's interested.
And close ups of each topper:
They went down very well though, with my boys and the party guests.
My sister-in-law made this one for her son (my nephew) a couple of years ago:
The whole thing took about 3 days to make, baking the cake was about a 1/2 hour of the whole process.
May be a stretch though, as this year's "lego cake" didn't involve any actual attachment between the cake and the Lego, and my wife decided that 6 year old kids don't actually ever eat the cake, so asked me to build some Lego that would distract from her quickly made cakes!
Went for their names looking like castle walls with LoTR and Hobbit mini figs (which they are excited about because of getting the game for Christmas):
And this is what they looked like with the cakes. Afterwards they'll either keep the names as labels, or take them apart to make a larger castle. The mini-figs are already fighting Ninjago snakes.
Not sure what 7th birthday's will bring...
Here's the link to the blog post I found it on with more pics:
I didn't win Star Baker but am happy to have placed in the top third, as there was some pretty stiff competition!
