The Minion movie has just come out. I have to admit I love those silly yellow minions. They make me smile hearing their voices and they make my day! So are you looking for a way to make Minion Cupcakes? Have you wondered how easy are they to make for my kids next birthday party? Well wonder no more. Here’s all the directions you need and it’s a piece of cake…literally. It’s as easy as pie…no wait that’s not right. Check out my ingredients and how to make minion cupcakes.
Box Cake Mix
Box of Twinkies
Buttercream Frosting or you can use the homemade recipe below
Mix and bake cake mix according to Instructions filling cupcake liners
approximately ½ full.
Cut Twinkie cakes in half.
To make the faces of the minions simply add 1 or 2 black
dots where the eyes will go. Then gently press the decorator eyes into the black
dots. This will give the look of the goggles around the eyes. Then finish the straps of
the goggles by adding a line of black icing down the side of the minion. Add some
fun little mouth expressions on their faces.
Once the cupcakes have been taken out of the oven allow them to cool completely.
Take your buttercream frosting and mix in approximately 20 drops of blue icing.
You may need more depending on how dark you want the icing. Frost the cupcakes
using plenty of frosting on each one. I find this makes it sturdier so the minions do
not fall. Add the minion bodies on top of the cupcakes and enjoy!!
These are so fun and it’s a great activity to get the kids involved in.
Gosh I love buttercream frosting. Is there anything any better?
