    Loving the uniktty cake. Dropping large hints to my other half now, as my birthday is on Saturday.

    Here is our Lego cake from a few months ago. Its a bit rough as it was our first proper cake.

    The original plan was, like others, to have a corner being built with little bricks by minifigs. Unfortunately we ran out of time (had my other sons peppa cake to make as well) and ran out of skill! Hence the quickly made giant minifig.

    And edible minifigs are possible using the ice cube moulds, use candy melts! Just refining the technique to improve the quality. I will be doing some cupcakes with them soon.

    My birthday cake!

    Been wanting to make it for a while so took advantage of the wife being too busy with work and paying customers cakes to make me one and did it myself.

    I would love to do a full minifig this size (sitting down first before we go for standing) so if someone wants a giant minifig cake for a big group in Glasgow let me know!

    These are some "minifig head surprises" I took to Brick to sustain the Fairies.
    I used a Halloween Pumpkin mould to get the shape with the stud and I think it worked quite well.
    (The surprise was popping candy in the middle).

    Edit - pic doesn't seem to have worked for some reason?

    @Legoboy - I might have the task of doing something like that in about 8 weeks time!

    That cake doesn't actually look that hard to do, just lots of time and patience to make the bricks. Cant imagine it would be worse than the tediousness of bloody Minecraft cakes! Its on our cake bucket list but I have ideas for some cool tweaks.

    Rather than post them on the forum, have a look here.There is even a Lego Batman modular buidling type cake! Absolutely amazing!

    leemcg Oh dear, I'm in for it now. My son has Just turned 6, and he saw the James, Will you did. Well you'll never guess what his name is... So now he thinks I'm going to do that for him. (Give you a clue, our last name is Williams his first name starts with J...) Sooo looks like i'll be going and buying some new Lego v. soon...

    No new Lego cakes today but would love some Brickset thoughts on something.

    With the star wars marketing machine about to kick off I plan to make some star wars themed demo cakes to capitalise on it.  I figured making them Lego star wars makes things simpler and is another market. 

    I'm after what people would like to see in cake form!

    A Hoth scene on a cake would be cool.

    Just made Iron Man and Spiderman 'bust' cakes this week which went well and think a lego stormtrooper head be good. Any other heads you would like to see? (not Vader, don't think all black will work well).

    I have seen Lego millennium falcons done and have a fun twist on it which I won't share yet.  Any other iconic vehicles people would like? The chunkier the better.

    Thanks in advance for any comments, any locals are happy to 'test' any cakes I make!

    My wife & future daughter-in-law are at a Bridal Show and I just got this text message with this picture of a Lego themed wedding cake

    ^ I hate saying things like this but there are things in that picture that would make me suggest you use a different baker for your cake. Not the design but for a professional I'm surprised by several things on the cake. If it was home made it would be great but professional wedding cakes cost lots for a reason but corners have been cut. If you want a Lego cake any good cake maker will be able to make you one. Sorry if I have offended anyone but wouldn't want you to have any issues with your cake on your special day.

    For all keen Lego & cake enthusiasts, the annual Fairy Friday event in support of Fairy Bricks is not far off!
    I'm hoping to be holding a cake sale at my work again, on Friday 24th February :-)

    Bit of a crossover there. The one legoboy put on is pretty awesome, has character and has been well through. I stand by my comments on the other one. If you are a professional you are open for critical review.  I'm a pretty harsh reviewer of my own work, I've just finished making my birthday cake and while I love it, there are some wee issues.

    ^ I agree with you there. The square one is pretty good. The round one has obvious attention to detail issues. How can it be that shape and made from Lego? Why are the 'bricks' such different sizes and thicknesses?  If it was a homemade kid's birthday cake it would be fine. But for a professional wedding fair I'd expect better attention to detail.

    ^glad I'm not alone. biggest issue is the uncovered board and finish on the cut edges. £1 worth of fondant, a bit of ribbon and a run of a finger/blending tool and it would look much better. If they didn't do those simple things then I wouldn't trust them.  anyway, I will stop now :)

    Nice cakes. How are the bottoms of the heads done?
  • nexandernexander Glasgow Member Posts: 897
    ^ the base is just a disk of hardened fondant. to get the inward curve i just worked the top and sides as normal, flipped it over and worked/stretched/smoothed the bottom. Then flip again and resmooth the top and sides again. 

    dont try it with cheap fondant though!

    ^ probably 4 only as symbolic ones (5 would have been better from math view) since 50 would be a PITA to handle spacewise

    It is decorated with one of my favourite bricks, 2x3 plates. My wife hates anything x3 so he had to swallow her pride and allow them to be on the cake :)

    ^thanks!
    Ally was discussing with some of the others on sunday about doing a cake for edinbrick. I have the perfect design in mind although i suspect sleep might be a luxury that week so it will be kept simple. :)

    Challenge:
    Try not to cringe that the minifig's legs aren't all the way on.
