Evil Purple Minion Cake!

Of all the novelty cakes we create our favourite to make are minion cakes! Who doesn’t love those insane, fruit obsessed, nonsensical and cute little hench-people in the Despicable Me movies? This week we had lots of fun creating a cake version of the ‘evil’ purple minion of Despicable Me 2 for a birthday party. We loved this little misfit so much we just had to post some photos of it on the blog!

We used a small 6″ hemisphere cake pan to bake the domed head and the rest of the body was made from 1 inch thick layers of three 6 inch circle cakes; all vanilla flavour. Each layer was sandwiched with our lovely and silky vanilla pod infused buttercream. We crumb coated the stacked layers and iced with custom coloured fondant / sugarpaste before transferring to a ‘metal sheet’ decorated cake drum.

Our favourite parts of the minion included creating the fun hair, ‘knobbly’ teeth, stitched pocket and rather nonchalant eyeball! Of course, we enjoyed every other aspect of this cake; from the silver lustre dust painted board and dungaree buttons to the stretched, floppy arms.

When it comes to minion cakes we love how customisable they are. We love the idea of adding towers of baked treats next to an especially gluttonous little minion or adding some fun personalised costumes for them to wear! If we had to create a pair of minions to represent the both of us they’d be balancing cake orders in fetching yet impracticable tweed ensembles. What would your minion version look like?
