Jackson’s Lego Animal Birthday Party

It’s been over a week, but I wanted to post some pictures from Jackson’s Lego animal birthday party.

Jackson and I made these Lego minifigure head marshmallow pops:

The secret to getting the black gel icing to stay on their faces? Let them air dry overnight. They’re quite yummy.

I made four Lego animal cakes:

The brown one was North American animals, the yellow one was Asian and African animals, the white one was (Ant)Arctic animals, and the blue one was ocean animals. I used a Betty Crocker recipe that my friend Kelly found. I used loaf pans, which worked really well for the Betty Crocker and Pilsbury mixes I used. The Trader Joe’s mixes overflowed the pans and caused a fire in the oven. Jackson was very impressed.

Finally, I made the gift bags by cutting circles out of animal-print paper and gluing them onto blue lunch bags:

The party itself was really great! All of the kids who said they were coming, came. Most of the parents stayed. Cassie was a big hit. She spent some time asleep on me, then my friend Autumn took her for awhile.

Jackson wanted to build a jungle, so for free play time, the employees had the kids build pieces of a jungle. They put them together to make King Cheetah jungle.
