A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about how much I hate Birthdays and of course I did not want to celebrate mine. Well my family decided to throw a party for my twin and I and for some reason I volunteered to make our birthday cake. What!? Yeah. So this is the first time in my life to make our own Birthday cake. Please check out the 2 minute video I compiled about our Minion Cake.
My twin challenged me to make a Despicable Me Minion cake for us. She wanted 2 mischievous minions to remind us of our younger days.
It was a big challenge because I’m still quite new to fondant making and on top of that I know I had to find at least 10-15 hours free time to make a fondant cake. Yes that is how long I take to mix & bake 2 butter cakes and make & decorate with fondant and make & decorate cupcakes.
But I’m very happy how our cake turned out. The above left photo was my graphic drawing of the original plan. I think it turned out 80% successful.
I wasn’t able to make my minion on top hold up a candle because I realized that the candle was too heavy for it to carry and I’m afraid my minion will fall since if you notice it’s already a bit slanted to the right. Same reason goes for the party hat.
I used leftover fondant from the cake to make these 3D cupcakes. How cute are they ?! 🙂
