A dear friend of mine recently celebrated his 28th birthday. I wanted to make him some super cute cupcakes and ran across the idea of Minions from Despicable Me on line. I gave it a try and they were super tasty and super adorable!

I had a hard time getting the black gel to look descent around the eyes because I messed up the tube as I was cutting it open. I will have to try something a little different next time to make them a bit cleaner.

They are really easy to make. I baked cupcakes and cut a bit off the top to have a nice flat surface. I cut Twinkies in different sizes to get the different sized minions. The eyes are white smarties head on with a bit of icing, and the glasses, hair and mouths were done with black gel icing.

Sorry the pictures are a little fuzzy. I think my hands were shaking from a sugar high.

Not really, unwrapped and picked out the white smarties before I got started, each one only took about 2 minutes to make.
