My son Ashton was turning 6 on the 6th of January…so I wanted to plan a fun party for his special “golden” birthday.
For the invitation, I used the photo editing site www.picnik.com to add the graphics to my favorite recent picture of him, then printed them out in a 5 by 7 size.
We love birthdays at our house and I love baking a special cake, and having a fun party for my boys when it is their special day. At the time Ashton’s favorite thing was playing Lego Star Wars on his new Wii, so I knew that’s the theme I wanted to go with, and I started planning.
To go along with our theme…I made up these plates since at the time there were no Lego Star Wars party supplies. I love that they are personalized and Ashton and his friends thought they were so cool!
With so many kids coming we decided to have the party at a local pizza place. Before eating our GIANT pizza:
We played “Pin the light saber on Luke Skywalker”:
We also payed “Guess how many legos in the jar.”:
Here is the cake I came up with… It was my first attempt using fondant and it took some time, but turned out pretty well.
I baked 2 cakes…devil’s food cake (out of the box) each 9 by 13 size. The first one I cut up into big Lego block size pieces, then frosted just the tops of them (I tried frosting all sides, but it started falling apart). Then I pulled out my marshmallow fondant that I’d made a few days before and got to work coloring some of it blue, some gray and leaving the rest white.
I used Wilton food coloring gels. Then I gradually rolled out small pieces to cover each Lego. Then I cut out the “dots” with a tiny cup kind of like an old film container and painted a little water on to get them to stick.
Next I frosted (with regular cream cheese frosting) the other cake and put real Legos all around the bottom, then gradually pieced together where I wanted the big Legos. To hide the imperfect bottoms of them I piped around them with a small star design.
To finish it off, I added my son’s mini Lego Star Wars figures and added his name, age and stars to the cake board (that was a cardboard piece covered in silver wrapping paper). All of our guests loved it!
Then it was time to open presents…that was just a madhouse with 15 six year olds!
Before it was time to say goodbye, we handed out these party favor bags containing lego candies, Star Wars stickers and these book marks I made up for all the boys.
It was such a fun party! I can’t wait to come up with a theme for next year!

Where did you make the plates??
Hi…I made the plates at home. I just downloaded the lego starwars image from somewhere online (just did a search for Lego Star Wars images), then customized it in a photo editing program that doesn’t exist anymore called picnik.com. Then I had them printed at a local printing place, and cut out the circles at home. I bought gray and blue plastic plates as well as clear plates the exact same size. Then I attached the circle Lego star wars images to the colored plates and attached (with a strong glue), the clear plates over the tops so that you could see the image, but also eat off of them! Now that I type it out, it seems like a lot of work…haha :) but the kids loved them and they were a lot of fun! Good luck :)
Hi Misty…I made the plates at home. I started by searching for Lego Star Wars images online, then once I found one, I customized it with my son’s name and age in a photo editing program, then I made it into the shape of a circle and had it printed at a local print shop. Then I cut out the circles and glued them onto blue and gray plastic plates and attatched clear plastic plates over the top so that you could see the image, but could also eat off the plate. Seems like a lot of work now that I’m typing it out, but everyone loved them and it was fun! good luck :)
