My two boys are currently obsessed with the Minions from the Despicable Me films. I thought it would be fun to try and make some Minion cakes with them. Now these are not expert cakes, these are made by children cakes, so if you are looking for a tutorial on how to make awesome looking spectaculars then I would run away fast, however if you have kids that like getting messy, and eating the results then this could be right up your street.
We usually make our own cakes, but seeing as the decorating was going to be complex, and seeing as toddlers lose interest after half an hour I totally cheated. I bought ready made fairy cakes for the base, and a chocolate swiss roll to cut out the minions inner from. I also bought ready made coloured icing. I know- totally cheatsville- but sometimes in the summer holidays you need to cut all the corners you can!
