I started my night out with Marshmallow fondant! Ok people this one is NOT an easy one it is sticky and takes a good amount of patience!
- Marshmallows (I used 3 Bags Small)
- 1 Bag Powdered Sugar
- Wilton Icing Color
Put marshmallows in the microwave for 30 second increments and then stir until smooth. Add coloring to get the perfect coloring. Slowly adding powder sugar. You kneed it until it is no longer sticky. I warn you this will be very sticky and at one point you may think you did something wrong. Then it will come together . I’ll show you how it covers the cake after I do this .. lol.
Next I wanted to give Cole something to wear. I found this Lego Man that you can print on to printable t-shirt transfers. This was one of the easiest projects I’ve done so far. I even found a Ninjago Cole that I printed also and put on his shorts.
And last on my list was to make Lego Gummy Candy found on Instructables. They have the cutest video with the kids making them. I made yellow and red bricks to go with our color theme. This was pretty easy, it was a little time consuming but over all it was a cool thing to do.
- 1/2 Cup Water
- 3 Gelatin Packets (Knox or Generic)
- Vitamin C (if you want – I did for flavor)
Put water and gelatin packets, stir until dissolved and let sit for about 10 minutes. She had hers in a glass dish that then boiled in a pan. I did the double pan method (since my glass dish was being used). Turn your water bath on Medium High place your gelatin pan in and stir. Once becomes liquid again add your vitamin C if you’re doing that. Than add Jell-o flavor. Stir it all together and then take a syringe to put into your mold. I doubled the recipe to be able to do both my molds. Put in fridge and 10 –20 minutes later you have your gummies!
OK I’m done … oh wait I still have the cakes to do! Oh man I’m going to be one tired mama.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I’ll be happy when Saturday comes!
