Ok, this is definitely out of the normal realm of my blog posts. No fabric or other craft materials were used. But it does meet my cuteness standards!!!
Sweetie made Minion Cupcakes. You know, modeled after the minions from the movie "Despicable Me". Darn cute characters--they definitely stole the show in the 2nd movie.
Make cupcakes, allow to cool, and frost with desired frosting. These are a vanilla cake, with lemon frosting.
For the minions, use half of a cream-filled snack cake (ok, we all know them as Twinkies), piped with black details (hair, mouth, and goggles). Eyes can be made from white candies (Smarties will work), but we cheated and bought candy eyeballs from the cake decorating aisle of the store.
Shared them at work. Lots of folks stopped by just to admire them, and they made people smile all day long.
Yay for unexpected cuteness in the midst of a work week!
