The Great Big Lego Party Food

Posted by: Marita on: December 17, 2010

Parties are a great excuse to play in the kitchen :) I was very excited to get the opportunity to play with fondant for the first time – play dough for grown ups :D

I set Annie the task of making the Teddy Bear Cars and Tea Cup Biscuits which she happily did. We ran into one slight problem – all our chocolate freckles (for tea cup biscuits) had disappeared. However Annie quickly solved that problem by dipping the top of the marshmallow in white chocolate and sprinkling 100s and 1000s over the top – Brilliant!

From December 2010

Once Annie had finished with the Tea Cups and Teddy Cars she wanted to help make the cupcakes. So we dug out Betty Bib’s Fairy Field Guide and using the ‘Fairy Cake Recipe’ Annie made 24 mini cupcakes – although we used Lego  coloured patty pans and called them Lego Cupcakes :D

Fairy Cake Recipe

  • 115g butter or margarine
  • 115g Sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 115g self-raising flour
  • 2tbsp milk
  1. Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter or margarine with the sugar until light as a fairy.
  3. Gradually beat in the egg and the vanilla essence.
  4. Then fold in the flour and stir in the milk.
  5. Spoon the mixture into paper cases placed on a muffin tray.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the cakes are golden brown and firm to the touch.
  7. Cool on a wire rack.

We made round fondant circles to go on top and then put the Lego heads on.

I cheated and purchased a two Lego Figure cookie cutters which made life much easier.

I let Annie and Heidi have at it with the writing icing, while I played with fondant. Lots of fun all round.

My cheats Lego Brick Biscuits are as follows – make up some shortbread biscuit mix. Cut into squares and rectangles and stick chocolate drops on top to be the brick studs.

And of course no party is complete without cake. We had a Lego Ice Cream cake made using this:

We filled the bottom with vanilla dairy ice cream and put soy chocolate ice cream in the lid – different flavours so I was easily able to work out which one was the soy ice cream.

Not the prettiest cake in the world I will admit but it tasted yummy and went very nicely with the birthday boys chocolate cake :D

Some amazing looking food, and it’s so great to see Annie getting to enjoy herself in the kitchen, I am ure she loved it :) Certianly working her way to Junior Masterchef :)

Annie really does love to cook. I’m hoping to let her have more free reign in the kitchen over the holidays.

Such fabulous ideas Marita. Love the LEGO man cookie cutter.

Thank you :) The Lego man cookie cutter was a great investment. Opens up a whole range of possibilities :)
