It finally came and went the Lego party! My amazing weekly dinner Friend April came over on Friday and helped me roll fondant and cover the cake and with the last of the fondant we ended up covering the Lego brick cakes. Let’s just say the buttercream I made was look goop BUT it turned into a great bonding for fondant … lol.
Friday I showed you how the fondant was made (and once more I will tell you it’s a tricky thing to make but worth it). I kind of made a lot … lol. We had enough for the cake and 30 mini brick cakes!
First off was the Ninjago Cole Cake (yes it’s an actual lego character). This was a little tricky but once you put your back into it and roll it out it’s pretty easy to cover and then you just tuck and make it fit in the right spots, and cut off the excess.
Since I messed up the buttercream but seemed to make an abundance of fondant we ended up cover the mini brick cakes too. The lego’s were a little hard you had smooth around the lumps on top. I think they turned out pretty darn cute!
The Cake’s are done!
And since I had a little time left over … LOL I decided why not whip up a banner. I stopped at the dollar store and picked up few things.
- Construction Paper (2 Colors – I used Yellow & Red)
- White paper to print a Lego Man
- Ink Jet to print letters
Print the Words Happy Birthday on construction paper. Crunchy Cahtolic Momma gives you a place to down the Lego font. You can find the Lego man with the 8 here. Winks and Daisies also has other #’s for you to print. I then cut the letters down and cut a piece of red to go behind a little larger. I used Elmer's glue to glue them together. I found some cheap ribbon that I then stapled the letter to, so it looked like a banner.
There you have it .. lol. I will show the party tomorrow .
