Kelly Sheehan: So I Tried To Make Lego Head Pops And...


I was asked to make a special treat for our Grandson's 6th birthday. The party was Lego-themed so this Pinterest idea was passed along to me. We were shooting for "Everything Is Awesome" but ended up with "Have A Nice Day" smiley faces. "Pinterest Fail"? You decide.

It seemed easy enough. Slide a standard marshmallow on a cake-pop stick followed by a mini Marshmallow to simulate a Lego head complete with its little connector peg on top. Then dip in melting chocolate and draw faces on them. That's where I got tripped up. Right off the bat writing with one of those cake gel tubes does not work. It goes on too thick. Now in full scramble mode I called around and found edible markers (Thank you Meijer). You can be way more precise with these however I found they have such a fine tip they kind of carve into the chocolate coating. I'm wondering if refrigerating or freezing the Lego heads before trying to draw faces would help. And I recommend you have some idea what Lego characters look like. Search the internet for "images of lego people" or just grab a couple of your kids lego people toys for reference. If you have any thoughts or tips send me an email and any pictures of your project to kellysheehan@iheartmedia.com. Bottom line they tasted fantastic regardless of their faces!
