My youngest son is mad about Lego and last week he came home from school telling me he had seen a picture of some chocolate Lego mini-figures that were really cool.
Not to be outdone and to keep up the pretence that I am super mum, I decided to see if I could find some of the aforementioned mini-figures.
After a bit of shopping around I found a Lego ice cube mould on ebay that I was sure would do the job. He was having a friend home after school today and they had asked me if I would make them some buns. So, as you can imagine I was delighted when the postie brought me a lovely little parcel this morning.
Well, after a bit of a play this afternoon, I had enough little chocolate figures for a batch of cupcakes and I am fairly happy with how they turned out. I think next time I need to do a bit more banging to get some more of the air bubbles out.
When we got home after school I told the boys that I had made them some buns. After a mad dash to the kitchen and lots of oohing and aahing, the final verdict was in. They are cool and awesome and, its official, I am amazing!
and of course, when it was his birthday he had to have a lego cake................
