Quinn asked for a LEGO cake for his birthday and of course I promised him one. More specifically he wanted “a red and blue frosted lego cake made with chocolate and white cake.” I managed to check off most of his requests with this easy LEGO cake.
I pulled off the marble cake, using a cake mix and cocoa powder. I refused to attempt red frosting though. Because gross! Does anyone else hate red frosting too? I avoid red (and even purple or orange) frosting from bakeries like the plague. Not that my food coloring actually creates a true red color anyway. I did manage to make him a blue frosted LEGO marble cake, 3 out of 4 requests isn’t too bad!
I opted to create one big brick by baking the cake in a loaf pan. Once it cooled, I cut the rounded top off to create a rectangle shaped cake.
Marshmallows cut in half and added to the top of the cake create the LEGO brick look. The trickiest part is frosting the marshmallows without getting your fingers covered in blue frosting! Once frosted, move the cake to a LEGO base plate (affiliate link) for display. I added a piece of wax paper directly under the cake to make clean up a little easier. Add a few LEGO mini figures to the cake (or the base plate) and you’re done!
