Easy Lego Minifig Cupcakes11:45 PM
My daughter does all the baking in our house. And why not? She's good at it, loves it, and has the best ideas. Today was my son's 7th birthday, and all he wanted was a batch of Lego cupcakes. His sister came up with these in about an hour.
To make them, simply bake up your choice of cupcake from a boxed cake mix. Add your choice of canned frosting (use piping tips for a fancier look). Then adorn with these super-simple edible minifigures!
Let the chocolate set in the fridge and pop out right before you want to serve the cupcakes. Use a food-grade marker to draw little faces. My daughter got sassy and made a few with "X"s for eyes. (Can you say RIP?) The boys got a chuckle out of this....
My 7-year-old LOVED these cupcakes, and they really take no time at all. If you've seen some of the fabulous cakes and designs on Pinterest, the thought of a Lego-inspired dessert may be overwhelming. These molds make short work of the decorations, however, and they even make "brick" molds for even more variety.
