Everything on the plate is edible ?This time 8 years ago my boy was born. And now, this little chappy is a massive Lego fanatic, for a long time now. Lego this and Lego that. Everyone knows what this little boy wants whenever there is a need for it. Lego. More and more Lego each year.

 

Not just Lego to play with but Lego to read, to wear and to eat with ??‍♀️ Wherever you see him you will find him with Lego. Even the naughty step, whilst driving and dinner table. He definitely sleeps with his Lego! Don't get me wrong, I really don't like Lego (with a passion) and the number of teeny weeny pieces I have stepped on bare foot ? has been more than enough for me to dispose them.

 

But fortunately for him, mummy is a hoarder and mummy will never throw away Lego! Here's my not so baby boy's, but big boys birthday cake I made for him from scratch. Baring in mind I loathe cake decorating, I did enjoy this one ? and guess who said it's the best Lego food he has ever had?

 

Yep the birthday Lego kid did- RESULT
