My youngest son is turning 5 on Sunday and has asked me to make him a Lego cake this year. My oldest son will be 8 on Christmas Eve and asked for me to make him a Chessboard birthday cake. They seem easy enough, but if anyone has any tips or advice for either they would be much appreciated!
For my oldests Chessboard cake, my husband and I found a Harry Potter set of Chess pieces from Barnes & Noble we picked up to put on the cake as his favorite game is Chess and he loves the first Harry Potter with the chess pieces moving around. So I figured to make the cake like a chessboard and place the pieces on top of it since they are pretty light.
My youngest is a huge fan of Legos and I was thinking of trying to make the cake look like a Lego piece and buy an inexpensive set to put on there as well. What do you think?
