Awesome Homemade Despicable Me Minions Birthday Cake

These are my little minions! Each one is made of two 6” rounds covered in yellow fondant and decorated with gum paste details. The goggles I made the night before. They are strips of fondant that were wrapped around household items that were roughly the same size and then the next day I airbrushed them. It’s really important that you make the goggles out of fondant because you have to cut them to fit the rounded head of the minions. Gum paste will dry too hard.

I made the hair out of gum paste though you could use fondant but I’d give them at least 3 days to dry if you do. I used my extruder to make the strands of hair.

Hope you enjoy them!

  1. I love this, they came out so good! You are very talented. I am thinking about trying to do a similar cake for my sons birthday. Did you use any dowels, or foam board inbetween the cake layers for support?
