Gearing up for a Lego-tastic Birthday!

My lovely daughter recently turned twelve and she has her birthday party this weekend. We are having it at a beach so I am not going crazy with decor because there isn’t TOO much to decorate!
We did make some really cute invitations:

I just bought a pack of notecards and some brightly colored card stock. I just cut the card stock to fit the front of the card. I then used a circle punch to punch out circles and attached them with glue dots so they would be a little raised. They turned out great! I even downloaded a cute Lego font for the inside of the cards.

I am now elbows deep trying to design a Lego brick birthday cake and get it done before Saturday! So far I have three pretty cakes; vanilla, dark chocolate, and red velvet.

Each one is going to be cut, stacked and turned into a brick.

I also made some homemade fondant because store bought is SO awful. I found a recipe online for marshmallow fondant. It was relatively easy but pretty messy! Especially because I had two kids helping out!

Three tubs of girly fondant colors done!

Now all to do is trim cakes, crumb coat, cover with fondant and stack! We shall see if I can finish it tomorrow!
