Happy Birthday, My Biggest Little Monkey!

So today is my adorable oldest monkey's birthday. He is six years old, and sooo proud! A few years ago I started a tradition of sorts that the kids can pick any themed birthday cake they want. So naturally what would any five year old boy pick out? A LEGO cake! My favorite cake decorating website is CakeCentral so we checked out all the LEGO cakes they had to offer, and here's what we decided on.
How cute are those little lego hands?
      No, that is not paint, its cake batter! This is what happens when a six year old makes the decisions...
 This cake took about 6+ hours to make and those LEGO men were exhausting, but if you would have seen the smile on his face when he went to sleep tonight, you would understand why it was worth every teeny tiny lego bump. In his own words " Mommy, this was the best birthday ever!!"

Recipe Notes:
The cake is the same recipe as the bundt cake, with the cooking time reduced, and no streusel filling.
