Just thought I'd share someone elses custom LEGO cake. IMO it is the best LEGO cake ever made! Please note: (Sadly) The cake is NOT mine. ;(

    I'm biased, but I prefer our wedding cake. Granted, it was actual bricks, but the concept of pulling back the fondant to reveal bricks is the same; we just chose a subtler approach:

    Lego ... cake ??? Two passions combined ?? What a happy thought.

    I'm sorry @Savage_steel, but the cake I'll be bringing when I visit you will not look like that ;-)

    @Rocao Damn! What a beauty. Your cake looks a lot more professional. The Reddit cake looks like MegaBloks!

    Lego ... cake ???
    The movie Donnie Darko states that "cellar door" is perhaps the most beautiful phrase in the English language, in terms of its sound, when said aloud. I'd certainly argue a case for "lego cake" too.

    they are both awesome cakes, I have to admit, my first thought after 'coooool' was, 'but bricks couldn't DO that' so I was delighted to see your cakes pics @rocao .......bricks behaving properly!

    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!

    @rocao - didn't you post a picture of yours somewhere here before?

    @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)

    There is definitely a thread with pics of Lego cakes already, coz I remember commenting on how it combined two of my passions :-) and I promised to take cake to the Brickish AGM (which I did, though the icing got a bit smooshed in transit). Maybe the other cake thread could be found and this could be merged with it?

    @savage_steel it has recently come to my attention that there is a minifigure-shaped ice cube tray also. Very cute. I sadly don't own any of the trays but would invest if they could double up for cake purposes. Does anyone know if the silicone-type ice cube trays are oven-safe?
  • rocaorocao Administrator Posts: 4,284
    What a coincidence... I was uploading some photos of LEGO details from our wedding in 2007 literally just a few moments before I saw this thread :P

    I own the ice cube trays. I don't know if the trays are oven safe, but the molds are so small that I think the cake would crumble as you try to remove it.

    Heck... even the ice cubes crumble :/
  • YellowcastleYellowcastle Member Posts: 4,401
    @ Everyone - I've merged the discussions. :o)

    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)
  • kufkuf Member Posts: 66
    The ice cube mold is not rated for oven temperatures, as I recall. You could probably use it as a chocolate mold though. Chocolate minifigs. Yum.
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 2,649
    ^agreed. I've seen someone on eBay selling candles and chocolate figures made this way.

    Mmmm candles...

    I don't like that the "Sometimes I Bake" cake (the first one in this thread) looks like Megabloks, although it is a valiant effort. I really like how the "Anon Red Wedding Cake" (link from Reddit) has cake bricks that actually look like LEGO bricks. Overall I really like that cake. And of course "Rocao's Cake" is awesome!
  • leemcgleemcg Member Posts: 607
    I did Lego cakes for my boys' 5th birthdays but I definitely took the easy way out compared to some in this thread. I bought plain white iced square cakes and made toppers out of Lego on white plates. The toppers were their initials with minifigs climbing all over. They got to keep the Lego afterwards.

    I could find a photo if anyone's interested.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,497

  • mrseatlemrseatle Member Posts: 410
    I love the way you did the initials... J & W!
  • leemcgleemcg Member Posts: 607
    Yes those are my boys' initials. I didn't have an awful lot of time to plan this, and if I could do it again I'd leave out colours like tan, white and dark red and only include bright colours.

    They went down very well though, with my boys and the party guests.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,497
    That's really cool @leemcg! I'm sure your boys loved them!

    I did this for my sons birthday... he loved it. flickr.com/photos/erinlynwendt/7558155632/ Not having much experience with frosting cakes I hadn't anticipated how much the black frosting would "spread" out in the heat of the room but I thought it turned out pretty good to just imitate the Lego Ninjago logo you see often. We just got Nadia cakes (the TLC cupcake wars winner) in Maple Grove, MN so I might see next year what she can cook up but I bet it will be spendy!

    My sister-in-law made this one for her son (my nephew) a couple of years ago:

    My wife made this for me last week. She's not an expert cake maker but she does make lovely tasting cakes. The bricks on top are actually rice crispy squares covered in icing, the studs are individual blobs moulded and put on the cake and the whole lot, minifigs included, is edible. The figures in the second photo from left to right are my daughter Carla who's 16m, my son Otis who is almost 3, my wife Avital who made the cake and then me.

    The whole thing took about 3 days to make, baking the cake was about a 1/2 hour of the whole process.

    Hi - revisiting an old thread because my boys were 6 at the weekend...

    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):

    image

    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...

    If this was the Generation Game, 10/10 for the lego names, didn't he do well. For the cakes, 3/10. You weren't joking when you said they were quickly made! I bet they still taste good though.

    My work is doing its own version of the Great British Bake-Off over the course of 8 weeks. This week was Novelty bakes, so I knew exactly what theme I would go for :-)
    I didn't win Star Baker but am happy to have placed in the top third, as there was some pretty stiff competition!
