LEGO Cake Plate

I made a LEGO cake plate for my LEGO DUPLO House Party we have coming up, next week. It was actually pretty easy to make. I have an old stash of LEGO that I pulled out. Luckily for me, my husband and I sorted all of our LEGO a year or so ago, so I had a nice stock or 2x bricks to use.

I used my old LEGO, but you could also buy a basic brick set like this to add to your stash:


For the color combo, I stuck to the red, yellow, blue mix for this project. It was what I had most of, and I like the way these colors look together. No black, white or other colors. They start to look too messy in my opinion. These 3 colors look cute together.



I built the cake plate "sideways" so the studs were not on top. This made it an easy construction project. I simply locked the center stem in place with the LEGO.


You will have to make sure you are interlocking pretty well while you are putting the pedestal together.


I don't know if I want to put a cake on it. Maybe muffins would look nice stacked or??? I just knew that I wanted to make it. Maybe I will make a cake. I will have to make sure it is sturdy enough. It is old LEGO, so the "clutch power" is really strong compared to newer LEGO it seems like. 


The toddler did the shake test and I passed!

  1. I love LEGOS! They seem to capture a child's imagination, and lets them put it into a visual reality. When my kids were small they had hours of endless fun making great things. Sometimes it was hard to watch them tear their creations apart, but they would begin again.
