How to Make a Lego Cake

My mom helped me to make a Lego cake for William's 6th birthday party, and we had lots of fun.  I needed to keep the Lego cake project as easy as possible, so we used all store bought ingredients.

Ingredients:
3 SaraLee pound cakes
Kraft marshmallows
food coloring
Betty Crocker cream cheese frosting


I cut the top off of the pound cake to make it flat like a Lego brick.  I also cut the ends off to make it a little shorter and to remove the rounded edges, but I forgot to take a picture after that step.



We made three individual bricks and then stacked them together.


Don't forget to let the birthday boy lick the frosting off of the spatula when you're done. :)


We cut the marshmallows in half and then put toothpicks in them.
Next we frosted the marshmallows and put them on the cakes.


Finished Lego Cake




It took about an hour from start to finish.
Thanks, Mom, for all of your help!
