  • Step 1

    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

  • Step 2

    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

  • Step 3

    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

  • Step 4

    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

  • Step 5

    Take your black icing pen and write LEGO on top of each of the cup cakes

    And your finished
