New kid on the block: this cake brings back some memories …

Sometimes, the best things from your childhood can come back even better – and tastier – than you remember them (like the time Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham came to life with these scrumptious breakfast recipes).


Or the crazy Pleyworld Lego food art creations that made that childhood farm you built look just a little sub-par.


And now, we'd like to introduce your favourite Lego bricks that have been transformed into an epic wedding cake, courtesy of south-east London bakers, Cupcakes by SJ.


After the family bakery posted a picture of the Lego cake they'd created for a cousin's Lego-themed wedding, the photo went viral – it's been shared more than 69,000 times and counting – and the business was inundated with praise and requests from around the globe.


The white fondant cake features Lego builders in the process of rolling out the icing, exposing multicoloured and edible Lego bricks beneath.

Behold: the Lego wedding cake

For those less Lego-inclined, the bakery also specialises in cupcakes for fans of superheroes, Rubik's Cubes and Disney films including Frozen and Tangled … but only if you're local.


Cupcakes by SJ posted to Facebook after becoming an overnight sensation, writing that they are based in south-east London but they're unable to deliver outside of the area.


"We are a family who love to bake and create cakes for family, friends and friends of friends," the post said. "We do not have a shop or website or any other form of pictures other than those on this page, which was created at the request of friends purely to see what we'd been creating.


"While all requests are seriously considered, I had no idea one picture would create the reaction and influx that it has in the last two days, and am sorry that many requests are not possible to fulfil. I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for your kind comments, likes and shares. It is completely mind-blowing and [has] left my parents and I lost for words."


​Is it just us or do you think they'd be a great addition to the next series of The Great British Bake Off?
