|The long-awaited Police Station he's been coveting for the last 5 months. All 782 pieces of which he put together by himself.|
Then somewhere along the way, his attention turned to cops and robbers, where it's been fixed for the last year or so (witness last year's birthday cake):
This year he added Lego to his list of loves, and to celebrate 4 turning into 5, asked for a "robber cake." But not just any old robber - in his world, robbers look somewhat like this:
The top of the cake in the can rose nicely to make a good dome shape for the robber's hat. If you need a generic stud-topped head, just do what I did to make the neck - cut a circle into the center of the bottom, about 3/4" deep, then cut a slice from the end, being careful to cut just to the neck as you go around, and not through it. Bevel the hard edge a little bit, and you've got a decent minifigure head.

Guess who spends entire days being handcuffed and hauled off to jail (then told in a stage whisper to undo the cuffs while he's not looking so she can go steal the play money again)? But really, not so bad when the officer is this cute. I always did have a weakness for guys in uniform.
|He now lives in the costume his brothers got him for his birthday. I think I'm going to make him a striped shirt and black cap for Christmas.|
