This baby is 4. Where oh where did the time go?!
He is really REALLY into Legos… and not the mega blocks or Duplos… he likes the big boy Legos!
This year he requested a Star Wars Lego party. It’s fun to see him so passionate about something. Well, he first requested a superhero-starwars-Chima-angrybird-transformers-Lego party, but I managed to talk him into narrowing it down a little.
A lot of the decor was compliments of Pinterest.
As were the party favors which were Lego bags made from small paper sacks and circle card stock. The Lego men and block crayons were made using some cute molds and melting down black and red crayons bought on Amazon (I didn’t have enough broken red/black crayons since those are his favorite colors and he always uses them up).
His cake was a red velvet and yellow cake, with butter cream and white chocolate filling. I made it in the shape of Clone Captain Rex’s helmet following a YouTube video tutorial, but changed his coloring from blue to red to accommodate Luke’s favorite color. I also covered it in homemade marshmallow fondant (soooo much tastier than the store-bought gunk) and used the fondant for his helmet decorations.
I used an edible ink marker to outline his mask, and Luke wanted in on the cake-writing, so I let him autograph the back….. that’s also where it’s especially apparent that this is only my 3rd fondant cake and I have a lot to learn.
We had a fun time naming the food. My awesome graphic design sister made them for me (see her Etsy shop for those and more birthday printables).
Next year we’re going to Chick-fil-A and taking a family nap for his birthday. I’m tired.
