I was going to make a Ninjago cake for the party, but I knew it would be too small to feed all the people coming to the party, so I knew I needed some cupcakes, too! I used the same tutorial I used for last year’s Lego Batman party cupcakes.

I once again used the cupcake liner template from Skip to My Lou. Cut out all your liners from card stock. Since we are sticking with a green theme for this party, I used a light lime green colored card stock.  Once you have all the liners cut, glue them using a strong adhesive or glue dots. (I found that regular scrapbook tape adhesive wouldn’t hold these very well. They kept coming apart!)
Next, I created some Ninjago eyes on the computer. I printed them on sticker paper and cut them out. Since they were already stickers, I just attached them to the front of the liner using the adhesive back.

I frosted the cupcakes using my go to buttercream frosting recipe from Wilton. I dyed the icing a light lime green to match the cupcake liners. I love how these liners can be made ahead of time and that they add such a great impact to the party table with very little effort!

  1. This link caught my eye on Sugar Bee crafts because I was sharing my own Lego party posts – it is such a cute idea! I’ll be pinning this even though we’ve had our Lego party, so that my followers can be inspired.

    Really pleased I found your blog. I’m following you via GFC and Pinterest now :)

    • Thanks Angela! My son loves Legos. We did a Lego Batman party last year before they even had the Batman Legos out. The only thing we had was the game, so I had to be creative in making things from scratch! Have a great week! :)

    • Thanks so much Claire! Ninjagos and Legos are so popular with little boys! We have done two Lego parties. I am curious if this year we will end up doing a third! My son is pretty excited for the new Chima Legos. :)

  2. These are fantastic! I will be making them for my boy. Just a question: Do you make the cupcakes in regular white liners and then how do you attach the liners with the eyes? Thanks!

  3. Hi Lisa, sorry for the silly question, but do these liners have bottoms? Do the cupcakes sit on top of these liners or does it just wrap around them?

  4. Hello Laura,

    How do you make the base for the ninjago cupcake liner…? I would like to make them for my son’s 8 birthday.

    • Hi Reni –
      There is no base. You bake your cupcakes in a regular cupcake liner. These simply wrap around. Once you have them assembled, they just slip over the baked cupcake from the bottom. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Have a fun birthday party!
      xo, Laura
