I made this cake for a very special 9 year old. Honestly, I love getting emails from his mom about cakes for anyone in their family because they’re always extremely creative. When he wanted a cake for his Lego party, I suggested a traditional yellow Lego head. The birthday boy really liked the idea, but wanted something just a bit different. I affectionately refer to it as “Mean Lego Head.”
This cake was made of three 6″ round layers of vanilla cake and vanilla buttercream. I covered the cake in black fondant and used white fondant for the eyes, nose, and mouth. I attached the facial features using a small amount of piping gel. The nubby-thing on top of the head is just a little bit of foam covered in fondant.
So what did the birthday boy think? I’ll use his words, “This…is…awesome.”
