Welcome back to another Nerdie Foodie because everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you’re a part of a team! Everything is awesome, when you’re living the dreaaaam!
Sorry, that tune is so catchy! So if you can’t already tell, this week’s episode is all about Legos!
This idea came to me when one of my coworkers, LN (this is her online alter-ego she prefers to go by) brought her latest cooking creation, Lego gummies! LN went to our local Lego store and bought the molds for these Lego bricks and people. Throw in some gelatin packets and Jello flavourings of your choice and voila! Lego Gummies. They were delicious when I had a sample at work!
If you don’t like Jello and want a more natural flavouring for your Lego Gummies, check out Holistic Squid’s Strawberry Cream Gummies recipe here! Made out of pureed strawberries, coconut milk, maple syrup, lemon juice, honey, vanilla extract and gelatin, you can’t go wrong with that combination. Even I need to try this recipe myself (once I get my butt to the Lego store for the molds!).
Next, check out this totally rad yet simple cake recipe! A simple white cake recipe that can be reduced to one “Lego” brick (look for the modified amounts at the bottom of the recipe). Thanks to Canadian food writer Ricardo Larriveé (from Ricardo Cuisine), check out this fun cake recipe here!
And speaking of parties, who does not love a good cake pop at a party? These pops can be custom-made with how you decorate their faces. Check out the step-by-step picture tutorial from Erica Blogs Cakes here! You won’t regret making these as they are super cute!
Must try. ‘Nuff said.
Of course, Sweet Sugarbelle gives us a great tutorial for those whom are cookie enthusiasts! Check out this sugar cookie decoration tutorial to give you beautiful Lego sugar cookies here! No, really, you will want to devour these babies in one sitting…maybe.
