‘Despicable Me’ delicious cupcakes! December 5, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — missfoodiegirl @ 6:06 am

If you love have a small child or just love Disney Pixar movies, you must know all about the movie Despicable Me. For my nephew’s 3rd birthday party, I chose to put together some cupcakes that bear a rather striking resemblance to the ‘minions‘ of the movie. 

To do so:

  • Make a batch or two of cupcakes
  • Get some Twinkies, and cut ’em in half
  • Use regular frosting or add food coloring to white like I did
  • White Smarties are used for the eyes
  • Dab some black gel frosting for the eye balls and glue for the Smartie
Go through each little pack to pick ’em out. So annoying but so worth it!
  After frosting each of the cupcakes, just put the finished minion on top. Don’t worry – the frosting acts as a dependable glue.
And here they are, along with the birthday boy! Not too shabby, if I do say so myself!

  1. Great job! This is such a great depiction and easy to make! The minions are adorable and tempting to eat haha. I tried this for my friends birthday and just piped the face features instead of using smarties. Take a look: http://foodphotonoob.wordpress.com. It took a long time but I couldn’t find any smarties at the store.
