Last week I presented one technique for making edible LEGO’s.
I suggest you check out that post as well if you are a lover of
LEGO’s, by clicking here.
After seeing the complex and intricate statues in Minnesota, I did
a little research on what else has been done with LEGO’s. There is some pretty
interesting stuff out there.
I’d like to call this scary LEGO Palin. Almost as scary as
Remember how I described the LEGO people brainstorming in a meeting
Woah… Wait! The tires are NOT LEGO’s. What a sham.
I talked about LEGO’s and Star Wars coming together. Religion and
LEGO’s? Let us pray- to LEGO. I would be such a devout Legonian.
Haha look how freaked out they are. That sucks.
LEGO fail. They actually tried to sell this once. Half medieval,
half modern day. Those crazy French time travelers.
BAHAHAHAHAH homeless LEGO.
For all of you ladies out there, some designer glued a bunch of LEGO’s to stilettos. How couture.
It looks like this person may have cheated a little and used glue on the cupcake liners.
I concur. If someone carried one of these signs at every war protest, global violence and hostility would cease to exist. No joke.
Okay, so I saved my favorite for last.
There is this guy, who some sort of LEGO artist. His name is Matt De Lanoy, or Pepa Quinn if you are checking out his Flikr photos.
He creates amazing work, but I was most excited to see this:
Arrested Development. Shut the front door.
Lindsay and Tobias, my favorite. This guy is simply amazing.
Today’s recipe is for those who hate making cake pops, or consider themselves a little less skilled in the kitchen. These are much easier LEGO’s to make, however, they do require a mold.
Here is what you need for LEGO cake bites (or cake truffles),
– a baked cake
- a mold..
This is the mold that you need. It is actually an ice cube tray, and yes, I do make my drinks with LEGO ice cubes.
You can purchase your own Lego ice bricks tray by clicking here.
Or just Google, ‘LEGO ice cube tray.’ It might be annoying to buy a mold, but keep in mind that convenience usually costs money. This mold will make this easy enough for just about anyone to make these. Once you see the results, you will understand.
Begin by mixing crumbled up cake and frosting together. You want the mixture to be wet enough so that it holds together, but not wet enough so that it sticks to your hands. Ewe.
Roll the cake mixture onto a piece of wax paper until it is flat ane even. Press the mold onto the cake, resulting in rectangular outlines.
Cut out the rectangles. Keep in mind that they need to fit into the mold cavities with excess space around each side, so trim one long and one short side of the shape.
If you like, you can always refrigerate it before cutting to make it easier. I was in a rush, so I just cut them immediately.
Pop the rectangles into the fridge (on top of waxed paper so they don’t stick to the plate).
Meanwhile, melt your candy melts or white chocolate in a heat proof bowl in the microwave. I do it in 10-15 second spurts, mixing in between until smooth.
If using white chocolate, add the candy coloring to your liking.
Spoon a little bit of chocolate into each cavity. I did not show you this, but I used a toothpick and swirled in each of the little LEGO knobs (also called studs) to make certain that the chocolate filled each one.
The first time I made them, there were many chips and holes in the chocolate so you want to make sure it is as filled in as possible.
Drop a rectangle of cake into the cavity and push it down. Then spoon a little more chocolate/candy melt on top until it is filled to the top.
Use a knife or something with a straight edge to scrape off all excess chocolate on the mold.
Then, this is very important. Sometimes those chips and holes are caused by air bubbles.
You need to pick up the mold and drop it on the counter a few times. You will begin to see the air bubbles rise to the top of the chocolate. I might have a form of OCD, so I dropped it on the counter about 50 times. If you are also nit picky like me, you can use a toothpick to pop the bubbles out.
Place the mold into the fridge until the LEGO’s are completely hardened.
Soooo, you can make the cake pops from last week’s post. These are more challenging, but do not require a mold.
..Or you can order the mold and make the process a little more simple.
They look just like the real thing.
You probably would not have to worry about stepping on these. Most children would eat them up before ending up on the floor.
Go ahead, take a bite
