Hi Everyone, I am a newlywed and have always loved to cook, bake, and entertain. Lately I decided to start making cakes and now I can't stop; whether its cakes, cupcakes, cake truffles, etc!! I just love everything about them... the creativity, versatility, and the love that they bring to those who eat them.

STAR WARS / Lego Birthday Cake

This cake took a lot of time and research, but was a blast to make.
Happy 5th Birthday Jake!

The mom gave me free reign of designing this cake, and just told me to make it Star Wars themed and “nut free”.  So after doing some research to ensure that my cake would be nut free, I then moved onto researching Star Wars.  I quickly realized that Star Wars and Lego's pretty much go hand and hand so I checked with the mom to see if Jake liked Lego's, and she said that he LOVED them.

So I thought... how fun would it be to make Lego shaped cakes and have his favorite Star Wars characters fighting on top the Lego's!?! 

The blue Lego is Red Velvet cake with cream cheese icing, and the red and yellow Lego's are chocolate cake with chocolate buttecream icing (yuuummmy).  All 3 cakes were covered with buttercream fondant.
