Step 1: collect balloons, crepe paper and treats in the main Lego colours.
Step 2: bake your go-to chocolate mud cake. Press the bottom of a (brand-new) Lego board onto fondant icing to create those iconic “bumps” and decorate using Lego brick sweets and (clean) tool-wielding Lego people from the birthday boy’s collection.
Step 3: roll refrigerator cookies into rectangles and set overnight; cut into blocks for baking. Ice with coloured royal icing and corresponding candies to make Lego cookie.
Step 4: employ your other half and your mother to blow up 40+ balloons. Argue with OH about the quantity of balloons needed. As he walks out the door at 8pm to buy more, remind him that you want blue, red, green and yellow balloons only. Yelp in horror when he returns 20 minutes later with bags of mixed colours and attempts to add orange to the mix.
Step 5: Go to bed and dream about Lego cakes and balloons.
Step 6: make pizzas, decorated to look like cheesy Lego bricks with little slices of pepperoni arranged
demonically perfectly atop the cheese.
Step 7: sit down and relax while your birthday boy has a blast with his little mostly-kindy friends.
