My son and daughter decided he wanted to have a minion party this year.  So I had to do a sculpted minion cake. Here he is.



I used 4 8 in rounds layers and one layer I baked in a glass bowl for the top.  I put a board and supports inside before I started icing it.  His arms and legs are all made of fondant.  I also made two little side cakes with the kids names on them and a bunch of mini minion cupcakes.  I did half of them like the little purple ones from the new movie.




I had a blast making this cake and it was a hit at the party.  C&C welcome

Love it, I tried making a cake on the weekend with fondant and it's not the easiest.
A suggestion for the arms and legs, you can make them out of rice krispy, then cover with fondant instead of doing them all fondant.
