Coolest Despicable Me 2 Birthday Cake

My friend’s little girl is Minion mad – so desperately wanted a Despicable Me 2 cake for her Minion Party. I made two big chocolate cakes, sandwiched them together with butter cream then set to work decorating them.

This began with covering the cake with blue icing, which I then sprayed with edible spray color to get a more textured and shadowy effect. Then came the minion making. I think I made 39 minions in total – which meant 39 minions, 39 sets of glasses, 39 pairs of dungarees, 78 feet, 78 hands and 78 arms! Not to mention the hair and mouths. I also couldn’t resist making one naked minion, clambering onto the top of the cake. This also included 3 of the purple minions – with one climbing out the top. These were my favorites – they were great fun.

Finally I added some girders and a silhouette of Gru to the sides of the cake. Tragically I somehow managed not to take a shot of the side with Gru’s silhouette – but it was there, I promise!

The little girl in question was thrilled – and the naked minion was saved just for her.

  1. what did you make the minions out of? cupcakes? twinkies? and did you cover them in yellow frosting or is that fondant? they look so nice and flawless. i am worried that mine won’t look like that if i use icing…?
