LEGO Cake ANYONE Can Make

Screen Shot 2015-02-13 at 5.17.34 PM

Here it is. The LEGO cake anyone can make. How do I know anyone can make it? Because I made it. If I can, trust me, you can.

I started with a Pillsbury cake mix from the pantry- I am sure I grabbed it on sale at some point.  This was my sweet “helper”.

Ox-Lego-Cake

I was planning to make a 9×13 cake, cut out two rectangles, stack them and make a longer cake. However, I could find neither of my 9×13 pans. I know where I left one after Thanksgiving but the other is probably gone for good…. I had already made the batter and promised the cake so it was time to improvise. I used two square 8×8 pans. LEGOS can be square right?
*Note-there are no baking times for square 8×8 so I just use the round cake times and watched them closely. It was about 32 minutes at 350.

So most of you probably know this, but for my fellow non bakers, put a thin layer of icing on one cake then stack the other on top. You can also use the the icing to “glue” two Oreos together and then to the top of the cake.

Then  icing the cake. I tried making it blue. I may have needed a little more blue food color but I was afraid it would taste odd. SO, when you make your cake you can just do a better job. (It looks a little more grey in this pic then it really is.)

And there it is! The easiest LEGO cake ever. Hopefully, your icing will look smoother. I tried fixing it after I let it sit in the fridge for a bit. Do not do that. It only makes it worse.

Happy birthday to my 9 year old. Your mom is not a great cake baker, but she loves you very much.
