Difficulty: 0

Hey guys, its Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies!

Today, I got so many requests to do something Lego. And I got a lot of messages from

people saying, Ro, Im a beginner baker, would you please bake something thats

easy mode. So I thought why not combine these 2 things.

Today Im going to be make an easy mode Lego cake!

I love Legos, I have been playing with them and collecting them since I was a little

kid, and I even started a baking collection. See I got my little Nerdy Nummies set

down here. Oh hey guys, its Ro, let me just open my, ohOpen my oven, oh yeah, and stick

a little, oops, stick a littleStick a little cupOH! Oh god,

I need to glue these down.

Stick a little cupcake in the oven, and put it on 350 and bake for 20 minutes!


The things you will need, will be: 1 box cake mix, Im using a yellow box cake,

but you can also use pound cake, thats a really good solid cake, to take a

square shape. The recipe includes 1 stick of butter, 3 eggs, and 1 cup of water.

Youll also need Pam baking spray to grease your pan, the pan Im gonna use is a

rectangle pan. Yellow, red, green, blue food coloring. Or whatever color you would

like your lego bricks to be.

Cream frosting, and big marshmallows, not the little ones, the big ones!

Not jumbo thoughThose are the huge ones, the big, the medium

The medium marshmallow.

Lets put this all together!

Then mix it together for 2 minutes on a low speed!

Once your mixture is all smooth and ready to go in the pan, youre gonna take your

Pam bakng spray, or you can grease your pan with butter, thats fine too.

And just spray all the corners, make sure you get all the edges.

There we goPfft! Pfft!

Actually smells really good now, they must have added a scent, like, a,

vanilla or something in there! Oh they changed the smell of these!

Now youre gonna take your batter, and just pour it inLike that.

Now youre gonna heat your oven to 350 and bake for about 40 minutes.


While your cake is baking, we are going to dye all of our frostings.

So youre just going to take vanilla, white creamy frosting, scoop it into

a bowl, like so. Its very sticky, get in there!

And, just start by dying them, Im gonna do yellow first.

Because I want a yellow brick.

And then mix it around, oh yeah! Oh, oh!

And make a mess on your table!

Once you get your frosting the color that you like, time to do the other ones!

Once youve got your frostings all colored, take your cake out of the oven and

make sure its had plenty of time to cool, I put mine in the fridge for about

10 minutes, so that its nice and cool!

We are now going to level, using a little cake leveler, and youre just gonna

walk itErrrrr! Thought the cake, so that we have a nice flat top. And take off

the excess, oh yeah! Now what youre gonna want to do is cut your cake into 1/3s,

Youll need a sharp cutting knife, and Im just gonna eyeball it

Now weve got our lego bricks cut, weve got our 2 long, and our 2 short.

I got this idea from the girls at Betty Crocker online.

It was a really, really cool idea, I really like it.

So were gonna take 1 of these, lets take a long 1, and were gonna frost it.

Lets do this 1 yellow! Because yellow is sunshine happy!

Youre gonna actually frost 2 layers, the first layer is what the Betty Crocker

girls called the crumb coat, because weve cut up this cake a lot,

all of the sides are exposed, and it creates a lot of crumbs, so youll put on

1 coat, pop it in the fridge for about 20 minutes, and then put on a second coat.

Now were just gonna frost the whole thing, all 4 sides and the top!

And you can get really messy with it, because were gonna pick up the cake later

and put it on a new surface, so, feel free to get messy!

I just took this cake out of the fridge, its nice and cool, and now were gonna

add marshmallows, so that they look like Lego bricks, Im so excited!

I saw this tip online, its super easy, form the Betty Crocker girls, you just

take baking scissors, and a little bit of Pam baking spray, and you spray your scissors,

just a little bit! Ooh!

There we go, so that theyre nice and greasy, when you cut your marshmallows.

So what youre gonna do is take your marshmallow, and just gonna cut it

in 1/2, and they dont stick, because the scissors are greased! Ah!

OK, and now what were gonna do is dip them into the frosting. I have microwaved this

frosting, just a little bit, for like just, 5 seconds or something.

Just dip it in, pull it out, ah! And, here we go, I just use my finger, you can

use a spatula if you want, but I like to have fun and get a little messy.

Just use your finger, go all the way around, push the frosting down.


And then again, Im just going to eyeball it, and guess where this goes.

Im guessing this goes here. And then youre just gonna keep doing this for the rest

of the little Lego lumps.

My lovely Lego lumps, checkem out!

And if 1 accidentally falls in your mouth, thats OK, that happens all the time

when youre baking! Oops!

And remember, when youre making these, the big lego bricks have 8 of these

little nubs, and the small ones have 4.

Ta-da! Our Lego Cakes are all done, theyre so cute and amazing!

And, theres no fondant used, and these were really, really easy to make,

easy mode! Lego Cakes! I hope you guys likedem, if you have any other ideas

for any other Nerdy Nummies, please, leave me a comment below and

I will do my best to make them happen!

OK, thanks you guys, bye-bye!
