Lego Movie Cake (Design Creative Cakes by Sharon)



This is just a short post to let you know about a brilliant YouTube channel I found while searching for some inspiration for my son's birthday cake.



I stumbled upon this very detailed tutorial on YouTube from the very talented  Creative Cakes by Sharon. Sharon made it look so doable (that's a word... right!!!) That I just couldn't resist.
