Minion Cake

I was super honored to be asked by Icing Smiles, a national non-profit organization that gives kids battling serious illnesses a birthday cake of their dreams, to donate a really special cake for Kevin's 8th birthday. Kevin is one very cool kid who picked Despicable Me as the theme he wanted for his cake. So of course the cake had to be about the Minions, right? Needless to say I had a BLAST making his cake.


I wanted the cake to look like a quintessential birthday cake with swags and trim, but I used blue, grey and black to tone it down so it wasn't too frilly for an 8 year old boy.


I wanted it to be full of Minion antics- so here is one eating Kevin's favorite food, pasta Alfredo and another below that just pulled off a swag and is yanking one of the stripes.


All of the minions were modeled out of Krispy Treats and gumpaste.



The topper shows one Minion getting whisked away by the birthday balloons.


Here is the birthday boy with his cake. The smile says it all. Happy Birthday Kevin!
