What little boy doesn’t love LEGOs?! A while back, a very sweet friend of mine asked me to create a LEGO cake for her son’s birthday, and I was so thrilled to do it! I wanted the entire thing to be edible, so I started doing a little research.
I was able to grab this awesome candy brick set off of Amazon for a really great price. The bonus is that now I can use it to make gifts for my nephews, ice cubes or fun treats for my own babies! I know over the years these little molds will get tons of mileage, and I am all for that!
I chose to do a kelly green base color for the cake. This Wilton Kelly Green coloring makes the perfect LEGO green! A simple, clean white drip and some fun swirls on top helped to break it up!
For sprinkles, this little primary color blend matches perfectly, if you like this look!
The bricks are just colored Wilton Candy melts that I poured into the molds and made a big batch of a couple of days before. Play with color mixing to get the colors you want for your cake! You could easily swap in pinks and purples for a more girly cake, etc. Doing them a few days out made cake assembly a breeze, the day of. As an added bonus, I had a huge pile of bricks left over that I was able to package up in a cute bag and give to the birthday boy as a gift!
The little robot man was in this set too, in a few different sizes! There are several different ways to do his face, but I chose to keep it simple. I just drew it on with my FAVORITE edible food pens. You can get fancy with different colors of chocolate to give him clothes, etc if you really wanted to.
