How To Have A Great First Birthday Party
Yikes, what a picture-forgive my early attempts at food photography! Re posting so that The Kitchn visitors aren't disappointed by a broken link.
The Lego (or building block) cakes: it's embarrassingly easy, I promise.
All you need is a couple of basic cakes (baked from a box or your own homemade), enough frosting (again, from a store bought tub or homemade) tinted with food coloring in traditional lego colors (red, blue, yellow, etc) and large marshmallows (sliced in half).
Cut the cakes into building block shapes (squares and rectangles). Frost. Using a toothpick or skewer to hold the marshmallow half, frost each with appropriate frosting color and carefully place each frosted marshmallow half on the cakes.
