I have a client who has requested a lego cake. has anyone out there made one before? Can you tell me how to make the little "feet" that are on top of the cake?

I used a round cutter and rolled my fondant really thick and cut them out. I've heard of some people using marshmallows but this way worked for me.

if it needs to be all buttercream i ice the cakes then take some of the buttercream and add enough powdered sugar to make it really stiff. roll some of it out anc cut using a cookie cutter. pop them in the freezer for a minute or two, then they can easily be put in place on the cake.

I made a lego cake last October... the customer actually had a Lego ice cube tray mold and let me use it for the cake. For the most part it was... I did big legos using it (I had to use Wilton Fondant though - normally I just use MMF - and I think a fondant/gumpaste mixture would work even better.) I handcut flat legos though and used an icing tip with a big round hole to cut the 'peg' pieces. It was tedious and time-consuming but well worth it. The customer and her daughter loved the cake! I ordered my own lego mold right after I finished that cake. It would be nice though, if there was some sort of impression mat for this so the process would go quicker...
