Hey guys, it’s 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, I’m a beginner baker,
would you please bake something that’s easy mode. So I thought why not combine these
2 things. Today I’m 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, it’s Ro, let me
just open my, oh… Open my oven, oh yeah, and stick a little, oops, stick a little… Stick a
little cup… OH! 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! Yay! The things you will need, will be: 1 box cake
mix, I’m using a yellow box cake, but you can also use pound cake, that’s
a really good solid cake, to take a square shape. The recipe includes 1 stick
of butter, 3 eggs, and 1 cup of water. You’ll also need Pam baking spray to grease
your pan, the pan I’m 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 though… Those are the huge ones,
the big, the medium… The medium marshmallow. Let’s 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, you’re gonna take your Pam bakng spray, or you can grease your pan
with butter, that’s fine too. And just spray all the corners, make sure
you get all the edges. There we go… Pfft! 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 you’re gonna take your batter, and just
pour it in… Like that. Now you’re gonna heat your oven to 350 and
bake for about 40 minutes. Yum-yum-yum-yum-yum-yum-yum! While your cake is baking, we are going to
dye all of our frostings. So you’re just going to take vanilla, white
creamy frosting, scoop it into a bowl, like so. It’s very sticky, get in
there! And, just start by dying them, I’m 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 you’ve got your frostings all colored,
take your cake out of the oven and make sure it’s had plenty of time to cool,
I put mine in the fridge for about 10 minutes, so that it’s nice and cool! We are now going to level, using a little
cake leveler, and you’re just gonna walk it… Errrrr! Thought the cake, so that
we have a nice flat top. And take off the excess, oh yeah! Now what you’re gonna
want to do is cut your cake into 1/3’s, You’ll need a sharp cutting knife, and I’m
just gonna eyeball it… Now we’ve got our lego bricks cut, we’ve
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 we’re gonna take 1 of these, lets take
a long 1, and we’re gonna frost it. Let’s do this 1 yellow! Because yellow is
sunshine happy! You’re gonna actually frost 2 layers, the
first layer is what the Betty Crocker girls called the crumb coat, because we’ve
cut up this cake a lot, all of the sides are exposed, and it creates
a lot of crumbs, so you’ll put on 1 coat, pop it in the fridge for about 20
minutes, and then put on a second coat. Now we’re just gonna frost the whole thing,
all 4 sides and the top! And you can get really messy with it, because
we’re 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, it’s
nice and cool, and now we’re gonna add marshmallows, so that they look like Lego
bricks, I’m so excited! I saw this tip online, it’s 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 they’re nice and greasy,
when you cut your marshmallows. So what you’re gonna do is take your marshmallow,
and just gonna cut it in 1/2, and they don’t stick, because the
scissors are greased! Ah! OK, and now what we’re 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. Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo! And then again, I’m just going to eyeball it,
and guess where this goes. I’m guessing this goes here. And then you’re just
gonna keep doing this for the rest of the little Lego lumps. My lovely Lego lumps, check ‘em out! And if 1 accidentally falls in your mouth,
that’s OK, that happens all the time when you’re baking! Oops! And remember, when you’re 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, they’re
so cute and amazing! And, there’s no fondant used, and these
were really, really easy to make, easy mode! Lego Cakes! I hope you guys liked
‘em, 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! Oh my god, this Lego cake is so yummy, I just
gotta take a bite. Just 1 little… Oh yeah! Oh god, that was so good, I just gotta have
1 more! Om-nom-nom-nom-nom-nom-nom! Ah, I’m stuck in the cake! I’m stuck in
the cake! Little bit too much cake. Eragh! Oh gah, oh I think I’ve overdone
it! Oops! Need cake, errrrrrr!
