I saw this on a blog and loved the idea...there are some instructions in the comments...but i was wondering if you all could help me with this cake.

-What size pans would I need? I only have a 8 inch square pan!

-And how should i carve the 'stair step.? Any good techniques? I have never carved before...and would be so scared to do it!

Any other trips or suggestions for this type of cake...

I haven't had a lot of experience at carving cake so I wouldn't carve the steps. I would bake all the cake in the 8" square pan if that is the biggest size you want the bottom cake. I would then cut down the other cakes to 6" square, 4" square, and 2" square. Then stack. You should be able to get two of the layers out of one 8" cake. You will have leftover cake that you could make into lego block cake balls!

good idea, much easy than carving, stack the layers being cit 1.5-2" inch less each, no biggie... however 442 "studs" to be placed on the Legos bricks.... that's a job! you will have to take on consideration the blogger post regarding almost 8 hours on doing so.

you're right!! 442 studs is a lot!!!
And 8 hours!!!

But its been a while since i made a challenging cake..u know? My last one was a minnie mouse one...and my son would just love it..i know!

Any ideas on how far in advance i can do it all?
If the party is on Friday:

-Tuesday- I can bake all the layers
-Wednesday -I can stack all the layers with BC in b/w the layers and make all my studs out of fondant
-Thursday -Put a thin layer of BC and apply all the fondant (individual pieces!!) yikes! My back is already hurting thinking about it!!!!
