I made these lego cupcakes for my son's 7th birthday party. They were super cute, but I made a yummy chocolate butter frosting that was not strong enough for the weight of the lego candies. They were sliding off and we had to reposition a few of them when distributing the cupcakes to party guests. I would suggest either refrigerating cupcakes frosted with a butter frosting prior to your party or using a frosting made with butter and shortening.
I bought some candy wafers for melting at Hobby Lobby. You can find these in many colors at most craft stores. I ordered Lego silicone candy molds from Amazon.
I followed the simple microwave melting instructions on the candy melts package and spooned the melted candy into the molds. I then put them in the freezer until firm. Once firm, they easily push right out of the candy molds. Start making these a day or two before your party so that you have plenty of time to make multiple colors and the quantity that you need.
I used extra lego candy pieces to decorate the party table.
I had a hard time finding anything lego themed for the birthday party that wasn't super expensive and only available online. I was able to find the silicone molds for around $5 for a set of two on Amazon, but couldn't find much else. I went with neutral themed bright colored tableware that I bought locally and on sale.
If you have any awesome ideas or resources for a lego party please share in the comments.
