I. love. Minions.
I could spend this whole blog post ranting on about how much I love Minions but to save you the boredom/the horror (because I know some people don’t like them… God know’s why…) I will just jump right into my cake.
I made this cake for an adorable little girl’s 7th birthday. She wanted a full on Minion (and some little Minions around it). I was so excited to do this, because even though I’ve made a little Minion rose cake in the past, I was very excited to make an actual Minion cake that was in the shape of an actual Minion!
I made two 8″ pans (one chocolate and one vanilla) and sliced them both in half so there were 4 layers. I buttercreamed in between each layer and stacked them on top of each other.
I crumb coated the outside, and placed that in the freezer while I made the yellow buttercream. Once I let it sit in the freezer for 15 minutes or so, I then coated the entire outside with yellow buttercream.
Working relatively quickly (so the buttercream doesn’t harden) I made all his little details (ex. the overalls, the legs, arms, etc).
I wrote “H” on the Minions front pockets (for the first initial of the birthday girl) as well as wrote a “7” on the big Minion’s front pocket (because that was how old she turned).
This cake was extremely fun to do, and I’d love to do it again sometime!
