A couple of weeks ago, Judah turned 8.
I can’t believe my baby is a baby no longer. Sniff.
For this momentous occasion, my little man chose to host a Lego themed party. I may or may not have influenced hime a tiny bit when I found these awesome candles.

How cute are they? Of course, my enthusiasm dimmed a little when I realized that I would have to concoct some sort of Lego cake. But Pinterest came up trumps and gave me lots of gooey ideas. And whilst I’m no professional, I settle on one even I could make. Hopefully.
I started with a simple chocolate sheet cake, and cut it into rectangles to stack. For the brick tops, I used large marshmallows. In hindsight, I think Oreos would have worked better, been more sturdy.
I used food coloring and crumb coated the cake. This is absolutely necessary for a good finished icing coat.
Not perfect, but let’s call it Rustic Lego Cake, m’kay?
Once the cake was finished, I commenced with the party decorating. Instead of the more pricey Lego printed items, I bought generic stuff done in primary Lego-like colors. I knew the boys wouldn’t want to wear party hats, but I figured I could persuade them to don them for a couple of photos.
Of course, my gorgeous party room looked like this for about eleven seconds once the guests swept in like a category 4 hurricane.
Candle blowing, cake eating, party gaming, present opening…it was exhausting and and overwhelming success.
And Judah had Lego themed dreams that night.
