How to Make LEGO Cupcakes!



For LM's Lego Birthday Party, I wanted to find those Lego-shaped candies to put on top of the cupcakes.
BUT 
I couldn't find them!
So instead, I came up with an easy way to make my OWN Lego candies using Air-Heads!
Here it is!

Supplies:
  • Frosted cupcakes
  • Airheads (mini or regular size)
  • Knife
  • Wash cloth

How to Make your own Lego Cupcakes!

1. Unwrap an Airhead and cut a the end of it off. Trim the edges so that it is a rectangle. 
    (Mine is about 1"x1 1/2")

2. Cut a few small pieces off the rest of the airhead--OR use some of the scraps you cut off when you trimmed your rectangle--and shape them into 4 small balls using your fingers.
    **TIP: Wet a washcloth and set it to the side. 
        Wet your fingers slightly on the cloth as you shape the small balls. 
        This will help when your fingers start getting sticky. :)






3. Place the 4 balls on the rectangle. There's your LEGO!



4. Place the LEGO on top of a frosted cupcake!



5. Repeat with all your cupcakes.


 Hope this helps anyone else looking for an easy cupcake idea for a Lego-lovin' Birthday!

HAVE FUN!
