My five year old has just discovered Lego. It’s all Lego all the time, and so with a birthday coming up this summer, I’m anticipating a Lego party. I had come across these Lego cakes and thought I’d give them a try – I’m no cake decorating genius, so was glad to see I’d need only a loaf pan and a bag of jumbo marshmallows. Easy. Of course it would be easy to cut loaf cakes into halves or quarters to make all the classic Lego shapes.

To start, you’ll need a loaf-shaped cake. Pound cake works great, as it’s dense and easy to work with. If you’re looking to use less sugar, any quickbread works too – kids love banana bread. If you like, freeze it after baking so that it’s firmer and easier to trim.

If it has a rounded top, trim it flat with a serrated knife. You could trim the sides, too, if they’re not straight enough. Go for a rectangular block shape, just like a Lego block.

You can, of course, frost these any color you like – or go for an assortment of colors on a bunch of different cakes. Use a classic vanilla frosting, divide it into bowls and tint each with liquid, paste or gel food color.

Cut large marshmallows in half and place them on the top of the cake, Lego-style.

Frost those, too. Voila – Lego cake, easy to cut into eight pieces, each with its own marshmallow top! (Which also, by the way, are perfect for holding sparklers!)
