First, I scraped the flowers off the top of a grocery store sheet cake. I tried in vain to smooth out the top where the flowers were. I think I had to add some chocolate frosting to help smooth it out. A cake perfectionist would have been apalled. Good thing I am not a perfectionist!
I washed Legos in vinegar and placed them around the cake. Lego shaped candles added to the red, yellow and blue theme.
To get the Lego guys to stand up, I put toothpicks in their feet and stuck them in the cake. They didn't even touch the cake.
I used premade cake letters and wrote our sons name in cursive with a little grocery store frosting tube. (I fogged his name on the blog pic for identity protection).
I was pleased with how it turned out!
I didn't have to do a thing! Except greet the guests as they arrived and get our lunch ready.
Thanks, Honey! He picked up the giant Subway hoagie and ordered the pizza!
