Not just the little blocks this time...
Gabe, Lego-Lover-Extraordinaire, got 5 cakes! OK, really it was a 7 inch square cake cut into blocks, but still, very cool for a seven year old.
My own seven year old was very "helpful" in critiquing every little part of the cake. Apparently I screwed up the lego guy's neck. Sigh.
The cake was chocolate, filled with cookies and cream. Instead of buttercream between the fondant and cake, I used chocolate ganache. THAT was yummy and something I'll probably recommend to you next time you order from me.
ALSO... I tried a new fondant recipe, not that there was anything wrong with the old one. Why fix something that isn't broken? Well, I was getting bored. That's why. And I really really liked it. It costs me twice as much in ingredients, but it was so much easier to work with and tasted SO good. And the good thing is that my Kitchen Aid gets to do the kneading with this recipe, NOT me. That's worth the price right there.
(Notice my son's finger pointing out errors?! SO helpful!!)
This cake was a HIT with the seven year olds. It was even reported that one of them was so excited upon seeing it, that he literally fell over. On the ground.
