LEGO Party Food Ideas
LEGO Party Food is kind of unimaginative, and yet totally not. Make peace with the fact that you're going to use a lot of food colouring if you're baking and creating, and invest in decent confectioners food colours. One or two drops per batch of icing, for example, will give you much deeper colours than half a bottle of supermarket colouring -and you won't have the awful taste of food colouring to contend with.
Another thing when you're doing a LEGO party: if you're going to buy mould for bricks or LEGO men, buy the authentic original moulds. Yes, they cost more, but they work better. I bought a LEGO brick mould on eBay for a couple of quid and it's useless for anything other than ice. If you buy the original LEGO bricks, it'll cost you more, but you can use it for chocolates, jellies and candies.
As you'd expect the main concept at a LEGO party is bricks - unless you're going for Friends, Star Wars or something else. I love these ideas for 'Brick' sandwiches, 'Brick' brownies using M&M's and brick or man jellies and ice cubes if you start early enough! I also love these LEGO brick candies*- they are actually stackable, and are really hard, so you need some care around younger party goers, but they're brilliant for decor and treats.
If you want to mix it up with some healthy food, you're in luck with a LEGO colour scheme - red, yellow, green - strawberries, pineapple, grapes, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli florets - nature plays along in LEGO colours!
Of course the most important part of any party is the cake, and LEGO cakes do give you a whole world of imagination to play with - like these LEGO brick towers, LEGO peel away cake, a whole LEGO wall cake, or the plain cake with the LEGO wall inside. Cake Pops don't seem as popular as they were a year ago, but they do still make for great party treats, as heads or bricks.
