This super fun Batman themed Minion cake was a last minute request but we couldn’t resist! We think this mischievous little cake is perfect for a birthdays so close to the festivities of Halloween from it’s sleek black costume to the Batman symbol embossed cake board!
Minion cakes are insanely popular and they’re always fun to make especially when people request an extra twist like crazy costumes or quirky flavours! They can be transformed into almost anything which makes them perfect for most occasions; imagine a minion cake disguised as a pumpkin for a Halloween party centre piece, or even as a Christmas tree? What about dressed up as the recipients favourite singer or movie character? Needless to say, we love making them!
The cake itself was a freshly whipped up classic Victoria sponge featuring Madagascan vanilla buttercream and home made strawberry preserve. We filled, stacked, carved and crumb coated the shape before chilling it and covering it with custom coloured yellow fondant. The super-minion really began to look the part when we’d finished the iconic mask, ears and all!
One of our favourite features was the Batman embossed cake board which we covered with grey fondant / sugar paste, embossed with a small Batman cookie cutter and then dusted with edible silver lustre dust for a cool metallic sheen!
For the fun name plaque we were inspired by the Batman light signal from the films and comics! We used tylo reinforced fondant to create the bright yellow and grey fondant circles to emboss and hand paint onto before attaching to the side of the cheeky Minion character!
