Hey, yesterday was LEGO's 55th birthday! Yep, that's 55 whole years of tiny bruises and hopping around the house on one foot while cursing - which is definitely grounds for cake, don't you think?
Hmm. Maybe a LEGO cake would be more appetizing.
Now, in theory, a LEGO brick cake is pretty simple to make: just stack cupcakes on a sheet cake, frost the whole shebang, and then stick as many LEGO flotsam pieces on it as possible so people don't think you've created an edible skin rash:

You can also use the time-tested, wreckerator-approved method of just writing what the cake is supposed to be ON the cake, so people are sure to get the hint:
If I were Kyle, I'd be hoping there were another 9 cakes waiting in the wings.

And you're never going to believe it, but this, too, is a professionally made "LEGO" brick cake:
Ok, if no one else is going to say it, I will:
FUN FACT: The little bumps on LEGO bricks are called "studs."
FUNNER FACT: Today's wreckporters Breanna, Amanda K., Cindy S., Autumn & Dylan, Sondra D., Brian K., Gwen I., & Cricket are total stud-magnets. Awww yeeeeah. (Also: ouch.)
