I need to recreate this lego cake for my friend's son's birthday. Need some advice on how to achieve the corner where the fondant peels away to reveal lego blocks.
1) cover the entire cake with 1 layer of fondant, place the lego pieces on and then cover it with another layer of fondant with the corners cut off?
2) stick the lego pieces onto the corner of the cake with the buttercream layer underneath the fondant, and then cover the cake with fondant that has been pre-cut at the corner? (sounds tough!). won't that result in a huge mess?
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks a bunch!
