What was it for? The only molds I could find were bigger then what I was needing mine for but if your needing it for the lego cakes that are all over the net there is a few alternatives.

thanks sanalee I want it to make lego bricks like the cakes on the net.

I have seen moulds like ice cube trays and also silicone moulds and I wondered which worked the best.

I must admit I am not very good with moulds and find them difficult to use. Thanks for your help

I did a Lego cake for my nephew, and needed a mold. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought stuff to make my own molds and used the legos to get exactly what I needed. The cost was reasonable, too. Good luck!

For the small ones you can use as cake toppers I like to use the silicone molds. I prefer silicone for all of my molds though.

I borrowed Legos from my nephew to make molds for a Lego cake I did. I used the food grade slicone plastique from this place:

A friend gave me the pre-made ice tray molds to use but they turned out to be too big, like duplos.

 

It took a couple of tries to get the molds just right. The single block didn't work well, the large multi-block didn't either. I ended up having like three blocks as a base and building up a small wall of short legos for mold support. It was perfect. I was able to roll out the fondant to any block height I wanted, stamp the top with the mold and then just cut the blocks apart.

The Lego cake in my pictures was done with this mold which worked well since I was only needing the top look of the Lego and not the full brick

Theres also normal size brick molds on Etsy.

As others have said you can always make your own molds with food grade silicone.
