You see this was my first birthday with this absolutely wonderful little boy who was turning 7. He is my foster son who is very soon to be adopted. I wanted this birthday to be absolutely amazing! So I wanted a pan that would not cause the cake to be crumbly when it slipped out of the mold. This one did it!!!! I mean zero crumbles. Pretty much perfect.
Here are a few tips to make your cake baking experience easy peasy lemon squeazy:
Tip #1 - let the cake cool completely before you take it out of the mold!
Tip #2 - when you are doing three million things to get ready for the amazing party and you are just too tired to take the cake out of the mold before you crash into bed.....do it anyway! I covered the cake with plastic wrap until the next day and left it in the mold. This made the cake moist and it stuck to the mold. This meant that we had to make a second cake. Which when said second cake was left to cool down completely in the mold and then was taken out it came out so cleanly it looked absolutely fantastic. We like to make lemonade out of our lemons though or in this case decorated mini-cakes and it allowed us to experiment a bit which will allow me to give you tip # 3 with authority.
Tip #3 - This is not an overly large cake mold. There is a recipe that comes with the mold and if in the midst of rapid party planning you are able to rapidly translate a recipe from European measurements (or if this is your native measurement language) I imagine that it is as fantastic a recipe as the mold is but I know kids and they can't tell the difference between a boxed cake mix and the most amazing homemade recipe so I went with good ol' Betty Crocker. This mold does not use a whole cake mix (we overfilled our first cake). Fill your mold approximately two thirds of the way . Just like you would a muffin tin. I just put the rest of the mix into .....ta da muffin tins!
In case you have read all the way through this, taken the time to look at the picture and decided that you want to make this cake allow me to make the rest of the process a little bit easier on you. Here are the LEGO parts that you will want to hunt down to make the rest of the cake:
1) LEGO Bricks & More Building Plate 628 - this is what I used as the base for the cake although you will need to put this on something sturdy. I had my husband cut a piece of plywood which I then covered with tin foil and then a light coating of frosting. Once the cake was all assembled and the building plate put down and the cake frosted i crushed Oreo cookies and lightly dusted those (or Graham crackers would work really well too) to look like the construction equipment were pushing dirt around).
2) LEGO City Front-end Loader (the only item that I did not purchase on Amazon as I found it for a lower price on eBay)
3) LEGO City Lighting Repair (3179)
4) Construction Cone Molded Candles (6 count)
5) Candy Blox 3 Lbs. - This package had more than enough candy. I have never used fondant and did not want to begin with this cake. So I used homemade frosting and just took my time and got it very smooth (really my wonderful friend Ruby did this!). She made it look great. We then used the candy blox where the colored fondant was used in the original cake. I had a ton of the candy blox left over that we used for party favors for the kids (we had 20 in attendance), for a "guess how many 'LEGOs'" activity, and I still had leftovers.
Possibly not the least expensive birthday cake but....three of the items just had to be washed off and they are played with daily by my four kids, and those were the most expensive components of the cake. The actual cake portion (the Lekue #7 cake) was fairly small and so I made cupcakes to serve along side. I received rave reviews for the creativity of the cake. My two teenage daughters and even my 4 year old participated in the making of the cake and I can actually say that my teenagers did most of the decorating. They built the LEGO kits, put the candy blox on the 7, basically decorated it all. They had so much fun spending the afternoon working on it. That is a win in my book.
But this is a review if the Lekue cake pan which is an absolute winner! Also, I have a 4 year old who will turn 7 and I have twin 14 year olds who will turn 17 and then before I know it that 7 year old will turn 17 and that 7 year old will turn 17 and I have friends with kids and .....
