No LEGO party is complete without a LEGO cake to go with it.
Whether you choose to use a LEGO cake mold,or opt to go the homemade LEGO cake route, we have everything you need to bake your party a success.

And for those less adventurous or with less free time, bakeries and boutiques will provide you with a fantastic custom LEGO cake your guests will love. You may even catch them licking the plate, and not just the kids!

There is always the option of baking your own favorite cake recipe or using ours and then frosting it with the store bought brand of your choice or with on of our yummy frosting recipes.

For best results, if opting for a store bought one, use white or a cream cheese frosting and add a dab of Wilton cake coloring available in all bright LEGO colors such as yellow, green, blue and red.

Top with an assortment of LEGO bricks or construct a LEGO project to place on top. You might even use the birthday child’s own LEGO creation for the topper or make the number "one" out of LEGO in honor of baby's first! Here you'll find a custom made cake

This recipe is rated Easy to do and we have personally tested this one out! My daughter and I made this one for her son's first birthday. Her husband, the chef, had to work so it was up to us and thanks to cake mix, ready-to-spread frosting, marshmallows and these great instructions, we pulled it off with flying colors and had fun doing so.
