Lego cupcakes

A while back I bought a really cool 'lego' embossing rolling pin from the Cake and Bake Show in London. It was pretty pricey at 6 quid, but I had to have it! You roll it over coloured icing and it leaves little circular impressions like you find on lego bricks!

I bought it with my nephew in mind, as he loves lego. He also loves Thomas the Tank Engine but my icing skills aren't that advanced yet! It was his 2nd birthday earlier this month so I put the rolling pin to good use.

I made normal vanilla cupcakes and topped them with bright lego patterned icing. I even cut some to look a bit like the bricks. Excuse the yellow icing, its pretty shoddy! I had to do it last minute with one of those ready made in a tube things!



What do you think?
