D-I-Y Lego Cake

I was really nervous going in making my first decorative cake. Sure I have baked plenty of cakes before with your quick frosting job. But I have never really “decorated” a cake before. So I went simple! This Lego Brick cake was a simple as you can possibily get! It helps that I cheated and used a cake mix (Duncan Hines since my son is not GF). Sorry I thought I had more step by step photos

What you need:
2 boxes of cake mix (prepared)
a 9 X 13 cake pan (1/4 sheet)
mini muffin pans (Wilton Recipe Right 24 Cup Mini Muffin Pan)
Buttercream Frosting

I prepared the cake mix together in one bowl. I filled the 9X13 pan till it was 3/14 full (if not more to make a deep cake). I then poured the rest in to the mini muffin pan (got about 12 mini muffins or more). Bake according to the directions of the cake mix.

Let the cake cool in the fridge over night. This will make frosting the cake easier so that it will not crumb up.

The next day make up your frosting. Frost the 9X13 part first. Cut the tops off of 6 mini muffins and place the lower halves ontop of the frosted part. Refridgerate for about 20-30 minutes to set the frosting and make it so the knobs do not crumb. with a butter knife finish frosting the knobs.

You can leave it as is or write on it. My son really wanted his name and Happy Birthday writen on the cake so my Dad delivered and finished decorating for me:

My daughter has already put in her cake order for her birthday in January. So I guess it is time to start looking for Hello Kitty stuff so I can plan ahead!
