Tiny Taj

by

Recently I was asked to make a birthday cake topper. It was for a LEGO fan and his wife asked me what I could make. I told her I could create him building and she said that sounded great. He just happened to be building the LEGO Taj Mahal model at the same time so she asked if I could make him building with white bricks. I figured I could do something even better:

I want to say it was a challenge, but in actuality, once I thought about it, it came together rather quickly. The inspiration was the cheese slopes. I can not tell you how much I love that element!!! It was the only way to create the eight sided building at that tiny of a scale.

I was even happier when I realized that it was almost exactly to scale with the Miniland figure. The real Taj Mahal model really is about that size to a person. Hopefully he had a wonderful birthday (it was yesterday) and loved his totally unique birthday present. :)

    I love the mini Taj mahal – have not built using microscale yet but this would be a good inspiration.
