How to Make a Lego Figure Topper – Tutorial

I made this cake for my son’s 9th birthday 2 years ago when the Lego Movie first came out and was all the rage, and I’m reminded of it again now, since his birthday is coming up fast and I need to start thinking of what to make for his 11th.  But at that time, it was an easy decision since he was SO into the movie (it really is SUCH a FAB movie with an amazing life lesson) and I happened to have just finished another Lego Movie cake for a friend’s son which my son loved.  So he KNEW he wanted to have figures of Emmet and his friends Wyldestyle and Batman, as well as his nemesis, President Business.  He also HAD to have the motorbike that Emmet and Wyldestyle used to escape from Good Cop/Bad Cop.

While making Emmet, I decided to put together this tutorial of how to make a Lego figure since many people had asked me how I made my previous figures and what tips I had for making mine so realistic.  I am happy to say that I’ve seen lots of awesome figures made using this tutorial in the past two years and it warms my heart to be able to help others in creating something they’re super proud of.  I have to admit too…I often end up having to refer back to my own tutorials when it’s been a while since I’ve made something, so there is a semi-selfish reason for making them, haha!

As mentioned before, I am uploading all my tutorials slowly here to my blog and this seemed like the perfect time to add this one to the list…so here you go and ENJOY!  As always, I’d love to see what you create with one of my tutorials so please share any such work on my Facebook page, anytime =D
