‘Lego King of his Castle Birthday Cake’

My grandson chose a ‘Lego King of his Castle’ theme for his sixth birthday party.  The little king’s swim party was a success, even though his crown didn’t float very well.

The lego birthday king is wearing his red robe and flanked by his lego princess sister and prince brother.  They are shaped from Rice Krispie Treats and covered with colored fondue.  Wilton FoodWriter pens outlined the face and robe details.

Hershey chocolate squares were used for the castle door and windows, then outlined with piped dark chocolate.  Sugar wafer cookies are the drawbridge and held with chocolate licorice chains.

I cut squares out of the middle of the double layered chocolate cake and placed the pieces on each corner.  The turrets are chocolate covered mini marshmallows.  Waffle cones were placed on top of ice cream cones and chocolate frosting “glued” them together, with golden sugar glitter sprinkled over them.

Bubble wrap covered the tray and then frosted blue for the lego base.  Blue Jello jigglers were cut and placed with red Gummy fish around the cake for the moat.  Fruit rollups were used for the flags and banner.

Many of my inspirations came from the creative ideas for Lego Castle Cakes found in the website: http://www.coolest-birthday-cakes.com.

    This is really cute. My two granddaughters love Lego’s too. 8 and 5. We will be expecing twin grandsons in October. I still have their father’s Legos for them. Pinned and will be looking at this closely for a first birthday cake for two Lego Kid Kings. Thanks for sharing.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,
    Linda
