Lego cake and biscuits

Whose birthday did I make these for? Not a son, or a nephew… Nope, they’re for my husband. Who says 27 is too old for Lego?

Lego cake

The cake turned out much smaller and messier than I hoped (it looks like Van Gogh did the icing) but I hope you’ll agree it’s not too bad for my first attempt at doing a novelty cake.

My method, if you want to try it yourself, was to bake a plain sponge cake and trim the edges to make it square. I then used round biscuit cutters to cut the cylinders out of the cake off-cuts. I iced the plain cake, then stuck the circles on and iced them.

Lego biscuits

For the biscuits, I used my favourite only biscuit recipe, rolled out the dough and cut around a cardboard template I’d made. I am hopeless at piping, so a tube of ready-made black piping gel is my new BFF.

I think I’m still high on all the sugar and food colouring.

    My husband will be 33 in September and I’m pretty sure he’s having a Lego themed birthday as well. You’re never too old for Lego! Great job on the cake and cookies :)
