Disclaimer: If you are looking for a Lego cake to pin, unless your board is called "cake flops" this is not the blog you want. Just FYI.
With good lighting and angles, normally you can make anyone or anything look appetizing/skinny/well made in a picture. Hide the flaws, only photograph the clean part of the room, have a lady look up at the camera instead of down.... But there was really no helping this cake. It looks pretty ugly in real life and pretty ugly in photos.
It's a Lego block in case you couldn't tell. I realize it might not be obvious. My mom was in the kitchen with it for about 15 minutes before she figured it out. And that's only because I told her. She said, "Oh! I see it."
Not a good sign, folks.
But it's a labor of love (emphasis on the labor). I am no cake maker or cake frostinger, but I take requests and create a cake each birthday because I want my kids to remember that Mom always worked hard to make their birthdays special.
Even if the cakes look like a third grader decorated them.
