Tiny Taj

February 8, 2011

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. 🙂

LEGO Rose

I’m a little late on this. I’ve seen several LEGO flowers in my time, but Chris Wunz challenges the conventional building with this amazing rose that he made for his wife for their first Valentine’s together. I just love the simple elegance that is achieved using a few arches and I’m still trying to figure out exactly how he did this. 😀
