DIY Minion Cake!

Have you seen Despicable Me 2 , if not you really should, it is one of the funniest films I have seen in a long time!

We are all in love with the Minions, so much so that husband requested a Minion cake for his birthday.

I cooked the top of the cake in a small pyrex bowl (then flattened it a bit and after looking a Minion pictures I should have left it more rounded...) and the rest of the cake in a small cake tin. I decorated it with yellow marzipan and fondant.

I am not sure any of us will want to cut him later!

Linking to some of these fab parties! 


  1. Fab!!!! Your cake making skills are amazing, I'm not sure i'd want to cut him up either - he's too cute :)

    Hugs, Estelle xx

  2. Alison, this is amazing! Fantastic! I wouldn't want to cut into this either!

  3. Oh my goodness, this is adorable! I'm a big fan of crazy theme cakes such as this! Everything from a TARDIS to a pirate ship, etc...
