and then there was cake

Josh’s party was completely awesome. We had gorgeous weather, and fabulous guests. 🙂 We didn’t run out of goodie bags, but it was darn close! I have never had that many people in my house, but it was so much fun!

I spent all day Friday baking and prepping. All day.

I hope I never have to make a Lego cake again. But it was worth it just this once:

The knobs are half a marshmallow! Pretty stinking cute if I do say so myself!

Then I added the shortbread minifig cookies:

It looked a little like an army – guarding the cake with their lives!!

I had lots of shortbread dough leftover, so I cut rectangles and then added dots to look like Lego bricks.

Damon said they looked like Legos only in a Picasso kind of way, and someone else called them dominos. ~ahem~ I called them delicious. Phhhtttttt.

    Love it!!

    I made a lego cake a few years ago and used cupcakes as the tops of the lego bricks. marshmallows seem like a much easier idea!

    I love it! I’m not brave enough to try anything like that. I get someone else to make the cakes 🙂

    That cake is adorable!! But I fully understand how you wouldn’t want to make one ever again. I made a castle cake for Princess’s birthday and the amount of work involved blew me away. They make it look so easy on Food Network.

    That is a fabulous cake! I can barely frost a layer cake without screwing it up. 🙂

    That cake is amazing. I could never, in a million years, do something like that.

    P.S. The white piece looks like boobs. Which makes me like it Even. More.
