Have you seen Descpicable Me 2 yet? John and I went and saw it last week and LOVED it! Oh my goodness I have not laughed that much at a movie in a long time. After the movie I told John that I wanted to come up with Minion Cupcakes!
Because really they are already super cute and making them into cupcakes seemed the perfect fit.
I had so much fun making these cupcakes!
White cake mix
White or Cream Cheese Icing
Blue icing dye
Yellow food coloring
Twinkies or similar
Black Icing Pen
Candy Necklace or candy eyes or smarties candies
How I made the Minion Cupcakes
I started with a white cake mix and mixed it according to the box directions. I used blue icing dye to change the cupcakes to blue. I baked them according to the directions.
I used yellow food coloring to color cream cheese icing for the base.
I cut generic Twinkies in half for the bodies
For the eyes I had planned on using Smarties Candies but found a candy necklace and used the white candy from there. This worked out perfect.
I was able to put black icing from an icing pen on the back of the candy and it worked as glue to hold the eyes onto the Twinkie
I used the icing pen to draw the lines around the eyes and the smile
