My son’s name is Zane, so for his 5th birthday I made him a “Zane Lego Ninjago Cake”.
This is make with two 9″ chocolate cakes. I froze the cakes so they would hold their shape and the weight of the decorations. I made a raspberry glaze for the center and an almond butter cream frosting which I dyed assorted colors as needed.
After covering the cake with the glaze and the frosting I created the folds by using marshmallow fondant. I used the same fondant to cut out the eyes. Using a pizza cutter to trim and cut makes the job really easy. There is a great recipe online for the MM fondant.
These recipes saved my life.
Enjoy, It was a big hit!
