Lego Cupcakes

I am not just saying this because I have three boys....but boy toys are SOOOO much cooler than girl toys. Any of you who have a little guy knows what I am talking about. It starts with the train stage. Nothing cuter than a boy and his train set. Then they start playing with "guys." Enter the world of super heroes...Star Wars, Superman, Batman, Spiderman, etc. We are now in the lego phase at our home. Sure they are all over the house and every time I sweep the floor I am yelling for one of the boys to rescue the legos in the pile before I throw them away, but REALLY! They are so fun. We went to the Lego store with Grandma and Grandpa over the weekend. Poor Ben. I obviously don't buy him a lot of toys because he was so confused that they wanted to buy him something. He kept saying what he wanted for Christmas. He walked out of there with eyes as big as saucers holding his bag of lego treasures. He plays with them all day. Who needs sunshine, right?!

Anyways, I threw him a last minute lego themed party before we left for Mexico. I made these cupcakes in about 20 minutes. (the toppers that is). I used a kit kat mold since the lego candy molds were only available online. I didn't have time for that since I threw the party together in an afternoon. This worked though! I used red, yellow, and green Wilton candy melts. Then, after they were set, I piped matching color dots on with royal icing. So simple and quick. And I didn't have to buy anything. Wa-la! Instant Legos!
