Baking // Lego cake 

 
So I made a Lego cake! 

This is a great idea for children’s birthdays or even if you have a Lego obsessed boyfriend like mine.

Due to not having a lot of time or patience I did cheat by buying the Madeira cake mix from asda and ready made icing that only needed to be rolled out.

Recipe 

  • Madeira cake mix *2
  • Ready made icing *2
  • 4 eggs 
  • 150g soft butter 
  • 300ml milk 
  • Jam 
  • Buttercream 

As I only had one cake tin I had to repeat the below twice.

I started by preheating the oven to gass Mark 4. I then added one of the Madeira cake mixes, 2 eggs, 75 grams of soft butter and 150ml of milk, which I whisked until smooth. I then placed greaseproof paper in the tin and poured the mixture out evenly. Once this was done I placed the cake in the oven for 30 minutes, this did take a little longer so leave in for extra time if needed.

After repeating the above step and waiting for both cakes to cool I cut off the excess cake and added the jam into the middle, it was then time to add the icing. Adding the icing was probably the trickiest part, I had to open both packets and roll them into a rectangular shape so it would cover the whole of the cake, along with having to have enough left to make all eight studs. 

*tip: to make the studs use a milk bottle top.

I hope this has been helpful, feel free to ask any questions.
