lego cake

What a lucky little man my nephew is. Not only was it just his birthday, but big sis Cakes made him this amazeballs Lego Cake. Look at it, what a beauty! Decorated with edible lego blocks and lego men. How cool is that?

Of course, you’d have to be pretty good at sculpture to craft all this without a *little* help. You might want to invest in one of these ice cube trays. Very clever big sis. Can’t wait til my next birthday…

Dan Lepard Sour Cream Chocolate Cake icing & cake

More chocolate cake, this is very out of character Mrs Cakes? But other people seem to like it, so Dan Lepard’s Sour Cream Chocolate Cake it is. Only, don’t do what I did and substitute Wilton’s Candy Melts for the chocolate in the icing. It seemed like a bright idea, but they contain oil among other things. The icing therefore didn’t set, as you can see below.

Bad icing!

Still, it got scoffed – so it must have tasted good.
