A birthday cake for the Birthday Boy!

Mr M is a LEGO fan. In the May the 4th sale, he treated himself to an Ultimate Collectors Edition Imperial Super Star Destroyer….

Mr M and Brother M hard at work.

So, to go with his iPad case, I figured I may as well continue on the theme.

I took this piece off the top of Hogwarts to assist with inspiration…

So I baked two square cakes…

Stacked them, and neatened up the edges…

Applied a thin skim of buttercream…

I took the leftover fondant and split it into four….

Then shaped them into circular knobbly bits…

…oh yes. With the final leftover bits I rolled another circle, same size as the knobbly bits on the cake, and used the letters to indent….

Sweet as. So then I took the plunge and did it to the others…

image

Yey! Happy Birthday Mr M!

image

I accessorised it slightly with some minifigures, and a firework candle.

He was happy.
