Epic Fail of a Birthday Cake

My Husbands birthday is this week, so on the weekend we had friends over for dinner and I asked him if he wanted a cake.
"Of course," He said..

So I made him a cake.. I decided since my husband is the ultimate lego geek I would create him a lego piece from cake. I was so proud of myself! It would be a rather easy cake to do with a very simple icing job and I wouldn't have to work too hard to do it..

Well I definitely didn't work too hard...

Most people have said the cake looks just fine. I however am a perfectionist at times and I was not thrilled with how this cake turned out at all. I look at it and see a big blue giant piece of crap.. but everyone else says they see a great lego piece.

So you can be the judge

I know it looks sort of like a lego piece, but I am not happy with it in the least. The little top pieces of the lego almost drove me to insanity as I tried to ice them. I think if I ever did this again, I would cover it in fondant.

So there... this is what I call my Epic Fail so far.. you can decide what you think of it


  1. I don't think it's so bad! Way better than I could do, that's for sure.

  2. Super cute! And it made me hungry :)
