Minions Party (Part 1)

Posted on

My son decided he wanted a Minions party for his birthday.

I, of course, said sure– how hard could it be?

Someone really needs to slap me out of my dream world sometimes.

These guys were tough to make!

Minions Cakes a

These are chocolate, white, and strawberry cakes.

Oh, and did I forget to mention that I had to do all this with a broken finger?

Yes, I broke my finger 13 days ago playing basketball with my son…

As much as I hate to have a broken finger, at least I can say I have a “sports injury.”

I mean, what if I had broken it while washing dishes or something?  Pretty embarrassing.  

But catching a basketball?  Yeah, I’m cool.  🙂

Minions Cakes 3a

I made a yellow sheet cake, because the other 2 were apparently not enough…

You do think I’m cool, don’t you?

Well…?

Umm, ok, maybe when you see the rest of the Minion stuff I did with a broken finger in my next post…

  2. lol–I just posted a part 1 post, too 🙂 Sorry to hear about the broken finger. The cakes look great, though, so you still rocked it. I’ve been guilty of overmaking cakes as well. Once made two princesses and a castle (none of them looked as professional as yours, mind you) for a family party of about 20. One cake would’ve been enough, right? You did good, Ger.

    On another note, unpacked yet? You know where to find your baking supplies anyway!

    • Hi Liz! I just saw your post– nice!! Aw, thanks, glad you liked my cakes. Two princesses and a castle? Sounds perfect to me– making only one wouldn’t have been nearly as cute. Lol. And I’m sure they looked beautiful.
      Nope, not unpacked yet. Not sure if I’ll ever be! We are temporarily renting, so why bother? As long as I have my baking stuff (just found my cupcake stuff this week), I’m good! 🙂

  13. These are very impressive! They look exactly like the characters, which is something not very easy to do 🙂 Do you have any hints for handling the fondant?

  38. Dear Geraldine,

    my roomy and I were fascinated by these two Minion-Cakes on the first photo. They are sooooo cute!!

    Well, our best friend’s birthday comes up and he would love to get one of those cakes for a present. Problem is: We have no idea how to make a cake like this. Do you have any good advise how to make it or maybe could send us the recipe?

    Greetings from Germany
