Hi all,

I am making a 2 tier cake for a lego enthusiast's 9th birthday. I've never attempted to make legos out of fondant and don't know where to even start. I'm looking for advice on how to go about this and also what I should charge. My client wants 2 rows on a 1/2 and 1/4 sheet cake.

I'm not sure when your cake is due but they have lego molds online and you could use candy melts to make them. They are super cute! Hope that helps icon_smile.gif

I've seen somewhere that they used marshmallows and covered them in fondant for the lego tops.. not sure if that's relevant at all but I thought I'd stick my two cents in icon_biggrin.gif

Thank you for your ideas! I will keep the molds in mind for future projects, looked at them online and they look great and very easy. I guess I will do it the hard way and make out of fondant. wish me luck icon_smile.gif

I've made fondant legos before and it was very easy. I shaped a piece of fondant into a rectangle or square shape, I've even cut the shape out to make it have sharper edges, then I cut small circles using a wilton tip #3 (it depends on how big the legos are going to be as to what size tip you'll use.) I put the small circles onto the top of the small square/rectangle and spaced the circles apart as they look on an actual lego. Gosh, does any of that make sense? I hope it does. It's pretty easy to make a lego without buying a mold.

On my lego star wars cake I rolled out my fondant as thick as I wanted my legos and then I used on of my round writing tips to make the nubs and just attached the tiny circles to the blocks. I have also made lego cakes where the lego blocks were cake and the nubs were marshmallows and then frosted over everything. Hope this helps.

I had an order for a last-mintue lego cake a while back. Since I didn't have much time, I cheated and went to the candy store in the mall and bought lego shaped candies!
