Lego Ninja Cake Tutorial

Bronwyn Thomas from  Bronnie Bakes made this awesome Lego Ninja Cake with step by step instructions. Thanks to Bronwyn for sharing with us, check out her blog for more fun projects.

I made this lego cake for the winner of my 1000 likers giveaway and thought I’d create a tutorial given lego is such a popular party theme for girls and boys. We are huge lego fans in our house and I think I need to buy shares in lego with the amount we have spent

To begin, cover your cake with green fondant and colour your other fondant in yellow, blue & red and start cutting out strips


Cut the strips into rectangles and start attaching to the cake using some water


Keep going until you’ve covered the entire side of the cake


Next step is to attach the small green dots to the top like the lego board (and yes – I realise that my lego cake makes absolutely no sense!!!! There really shouldn’t be the green dots on top of the cake… they should be the coloured dots from the lego pieces…whoops!)


I then used some tappits for the name and made some little fondant lego pieces using this tutorial. The tutorial for the Ninjago topper is here.

Superbe! I am wondering what is your best advise to be able to work the fondant long enough to be able to place all those pieces around the cake without it starting to crack because it is too dry?


I have in the past cut my fondant pieces and placed them on parchment paper then covered them with saran wrap to keep the air from drying them out. I have also put it in the frig this way over night and the pieces lift right off and are not dried out the next day.
