I need help with a lego cake I have to make. I am not exactly sure how to get the look of the lego pieces. All advice would be greatly appreciated. I have a attached a picture of the cake they would like and where I need the help is the top part of the cake that looks like the lego pieces.
cut base rectangles out of fondant. roll fondant into ropes the diameter you want the "bumps" on the legos to be. Put ropes in freezer. When fondant is firm cut crosswise to make all the little bumps. use a sharp knife or exacto. Freezing keeps the shape round while cutting. Attach bumps with fondant glue.
I have someone that wants a cake similar to this also (thanks for the tips!), but she wants the entire bottom tier to look like the legos and the top to be a Ninjago head. Seems easy enough but time consuming, I'm not really sure how much to charge her. Any thoughts on that? She needs it for 30 people.
I made a cake like this recently, and bought a flexible rubber form on ebay that made the shape of the Lego blocks. It cost around $20 if I remember correctly, but it sure was easy enough to use, and the blocks did look like Legos.
I made a Lego cake, I just rolled fondant to an even thickness and used a round icing tip to cut out the dots, attached to fondant rectangle with gum glue. To make the rectangles, I rolled a sheet of fondant, cut, then let it dry a bit before moving so it wouldn't stretch.
I have made several lego cakes and I am with Full House on this one. Make your proportionate rectangles and let them dry a little, then use the correct size round piping tip to make the bumps. Unless you plan on doing a lot of Lego cakes save your money and skip the mould.
i covered the entire sides of a 9" heart with legos, thank goodness only the top legos needed the dots to look real. i took fondant and made into a long rectangle shape,let dry, and then cut the appropriate size legos, and i used the piping tip to cut the nubs ontop too!
