How I Made A Blue Ninjago Lego Man Cupcake Cake
I began to make this Lego Cupcake Cake by making 2 cake mixes. This is blue colored vanilla. I wanted them full, but not overflowing! Oops!
1
Seeking to fix my overflow mistake, the chocolate ones didn't bake tall enough. Oh well! Tip: Bake cupcakes at 325Β° for very soft and fluffy cupcakes!
2
The curvy shapes would become the shoulders.
3
I baked some square cupcakes for the arms, and referred to the Blue Ninjago lego model named Jay as I laid out the cupcake base.
4
I like adding cream cheese to my homemade buttercream for extra creaminess.
5
The large frosting tip helped greatly to easily lay down the blue background.
6
Be sure to make plenty of frosting for this step... I barely had enough!
7
First I used a large scraper (also called dough scraper, dough cutter, dough knife, pastry cutter, bench scraper, board scraper, and bench knife).
8
Then I used a flat spatula to smooth it all out.
9
Next, I used the edge of the spatula to draw lines in the frosting for a template of where to add the details like the mask around the eyes and face.
10
I carefully squeezed out the yellow frosting for the face, and smoothed it out with a flexible spatula.
11
To make black frosting, we added black to the blue. I carefully "drew" the hands, eyes, and other details.
12
I used gold and pewter sprinkles. For the buckle, I cut a paper towel in the shape I wanted and sprinkled sprinkles over top.
13
Then I finished adding the buckle detail on top of the sprinkles. I looked closely at the mini figure/ minifig the entire time to copy it accurately.
14
Oh, and I had bought blue foil cupcake liners to bake the cupcakes in!
15
I added dark blue to some blue for the headband across the forehead. I outlined the eyes, head, and arms in black.
16
It was so satisfying to see this Lego Cupcake Cake come together. Now that I've made this one, it would be easy to make another one!
17
My son was pretty excited when he saw it on his birthday! He said he was speechless!
18
It pulled apart as planned. It was just a little tricky figuring out which were chocolate and which were vanilla.
