When it comes to beloved kids’ toys, Lego really takes the cake (hahahahaha *sigh*). What I mean is, almost every kid goes through a Lego phase – so it stands to reason that a lot of parents will end up, at some point, throwing a Lego-themed birthday party. Since you can’t exactly decorate the cake with real Legos (unless you also want a choking-hazard-themed party), Betty Crocker has come up with a recipe for a “Building Blocks Cake,” which is what smart people call their Lego cakes if they don’t want to get sued.
You might think the directions for a cake like this would be complicated, but you’d be wrong! The directions are actually quite simple; it’s making the directions work in real life that’s complicated.
Sue probably should have been clued in to the fact that mortals shouldn’t attempt to make this cake when she found it on a Martha Stewart Living Pinterest board. Nevertheless, she had some birthday party magic to create, so she forged ahead and found out firsthand that the cake itself isn’t too hard, and cutting marshmallows in half to make Lego nubs isn’t difficult, but covering everything in frosting…
