Earlier that day, I had put the final touches to T's birthday cake I attempted to make her. We love making cakes, but this year she'd requested a Minion cake. I had all sorts of ideas! After browsing the web, I decided to try a flat one - so made a basic sponge.
Keep checking on the cake as it could burn quickly. I was lucky to catch it just in time!
I covered just over 2/3 in yellow icing, made arms and legs out of the cut off bits of cake, styled the jeans from the blue icing and made a little pocket.
For his glasses, I rolled and kneaded some of the blue and yellow icing together, which made a grey- green colour, and cut out the shape required. I used a squeezy tube of black icing to make his hair, glasses arms, hands, boots and the little "G" on his pocket. After leaving that to set for about 30 minutes in the fridge, I added some icing sugar inside the glasses to make his eyes.
Even if I do say so myself, it's not bad! His arm fell off and I ran out of black icing to redo his boots when they were pinched by J, but I had many compliments and everyone enjoyed it!
I am determined to make another one for C's birthday in December and will try to make a purple minion too!
Have you had a go at making a character cake?
