I made Lego Mini Figure Cake Pops for my son’s Lego party! Aren’t they cute?
What you need:
- A baked cake (store bought or homemade)
- One can of frosting (or make your own)
- Yellow Candy Melts
- Gourmet Writer Food Decorator Pens
- Mini Marshmallows or M&M’s (see instructions below)
- Lollipop Sticks
- Piece of craft styrofoam
- Wax paper
- Bake a cake, let cool. Put pieces of the cake in a bowl. Mash it up mixing it with a can of frosting.
- Roll a small handful of mashed up cake into a ball, then carefully roll the ball on wax paper to make the Lego head shape.
- The connector on top is a small round marshmallow. I sliced up a large marshmallow and used a Wilton cake icing tip to cut out a small circle. You could also use a mini marshmallow cut in half or an M&M.
- Arrange assembled Lego head shapes on wax paper and stick a lollipop stick in the top.
- Once assembled, freeze the cake pops. This way the cake will hold it’s shape when you dip into the warm candy.
- Fill a deep bowl with Yellow Candy Melts. Melt the candy in the microwave for a minute, then stir. Keep gradually heating the candy until it’s creamy.
- Dip the frozen cake into a bowl of melted yellow candy melts. Gently tap the stick on the side of the bowl and twirl a bit so the candy is smooth.
- Let cool before drawing faces on them. You can use a piece of styrofoam to stick them into until you are ready for the party.

Cake pops are good for a few days. I made mine the day before the party.
Easy Lego Head Marshmallow Pops
A much faster version is to make marshmallow pops! I made several of these as a tester and they turned out super cute. Slicing off the bottom of a large marshmallow and cutting a circle out of it with an icing tip for the top worked great.
