This Ninjago cake was fun, but oh my goodness, so time consuming. This was the cake was when I finally broke down and bought some silicone putty. If you’ve never used it before, it can be super useful to get impressions of very specific things, like Legos or broaches.
But it takes planning. These Legos, Lego guys, and ninja stars were molded and allowed to air dry a couple days before, but ideally you do them a whole week before to allow the fondant to dry. Otherwise, they might end up a bit droopy. Or very fragile. Or both. There were many casualties. Make extra!
