Red brick LEGO birthday cake
Red Lego brick birthday cake. I made this for my daughters birthday
You will also need
2 x 15cm square silicon cake tins and 4 silicon cup cake cases.
First whip together your favorite sponge recipe. Make enough to fill your square cake tin and make 4 cupcakes.
Below is the recipe I used
Cream the butter and sugar till creamy
Beat in the eggs 1 at a time
Fold in the flour
Place the cake in a 180c pre heated oven and bake. The cup cakes took about 15 minutes and the square cakes took 25 minuets.
Take out the oven, leave to cool for 10 minutes and turn out on to a wire rack to cool completely
One the cakes have cooled, spread the butter icing on 1 of the squares and jam on the other
Place the jam square on top of the iced one
Spread jam on the top and sides of the cake
Knead the food colouring into the ready to roll icing sugar until you get the desired colour
Roll out into a square that is big enough to cover the top and sides of the cake.
Smooth out corners and trim if necessary
Even off the cup cakes and cover in jam
Place tooth picks in the 4 coroners where the connector (??) bits would go
Place the cup cakes on top of the tooth picks
Roll out 4 circles of the icing, so that it covers the cup cake completely
Wet your finger and blend icing from the bottom of the cup cake into the base
Take your black icing pen and write LEGO on top of each of the cup cakes
And your finished
