Are you making one big lego piece or a lot of little ones?

I made one recently. I used a round circle cutter and cut out the knob size I wanted. I let it dry for a day or so then just placed it on my cake. HTH.

For the small ones just cut out fondant circles. For big ones I'd put something under the fondant so that the lumps are there when you cover the cake. Either a thin bit of cake, fondant or chocolate circles.

Hi there! I am new to cakecentral but I do have a suggestion for the knobs ontop of the Lego cake. I used a muffin pan and took the tops off and used the bottom. Covered them in fondant separately from the rest of the cake, cut out the spots where the knobs were to be placed and inserted them in, worked like a charm!!

I had to made a gluten free, dairy free dye free lego cake for a little guy with autism - I simply rolled out my fondant extra think and then used a round cutter to cut out circles and placed those on my cake. (you can see it in my photos...its a white lego)

Thick fondant, cake baked in a thin sheet, or cookies, cut out with a round biscuit cutter.
Marshmallows can work too (split in half). Or cupcakes, but with cupcakes you get slanted sides which is not accurate for Lego studs. Depends just how crazy you want to be about it. icon_smile.gif

My son doesn't like fondant so for his Lego cake I used cutout cake circles, and frosted with buttercream. I put each circle on a flower nail to ice and then froze it. Once the bc was frozen I could place the stud on the rectangular 'brick' cake without messing up the frosting.

I think a petit four type icing could work too; you could put the studs on the cake and then pour the icing over the whole thing at once.
