Are you on the hunt for kids birthday party themes for your little one?
Even better, do you want to be able to do it on a budget?
If you’re throwing a Lego birthday party I have the perfect cupcake idea for you.
These DIY Lego cupcakes are a crowd pleaser.
For years we did big birthday parties on a budget at my house. Now, most of my kids are older and we do a lot of family birthday dinners and experiences, but we have so many amazing memories of the parties when they were little.
When my kids were little we did a lot of cupcakes instead of cakes for their birthday.
Cupcake toppers that you find at the store can be limiting and boring. I always want something special, something personal, something that says…. WOW!
With that said, I have learned to get creative when decorating my cupcakes. Think outside the boring pix.I like to find my own way to bring my birthday party theme to life with my cupcakes!
One way to do that is to find a candy mold that matches your theme. You can buy plastic molds at craft and cake supply stores.
These molds are super easy to use for a variety of things! I’ve made candies, melted crayons, soaps, etc., with them!
Let me show you just how easy it is to make cupcakes for a Lego themed birthday party!
How to Make Lego Candy Cupcake Toppers
Melt your candy. I use a double boiler, you can do it in the microwave if you prefer.
Fill your molds… these molds are my favorite.
Let the candy cool 100%. You will know they are cool when the candy is pulling away from the edge of the mold.
Place the candy on an iced cupcake and you are good to go!
If you are looking for a good birthday party cupcake recipe you should try the one I’ve used for years! It’s our favorite cupcake to make!
