I went through a phase a couple of years ago of making minion cakes. Since then the minion baking has been limited but I’ve been wanting to make some cupcakes like these for a while. So for Tom’s hockey match a month ago I made a batch of yellow minions with 2 evil purple minions. It was a bit of a rush so I shoved them in the box without managing to get any good photos. I really wanted to share them on the blog so I decided to make them again! Me want banana!->

IMG_2702For the last few years Becky has done lots of baking for her running club and always tries to make the baking in the running club colours – red and yellow.  So when Tom joined a hockey club up here I decided I would start doing some team-colour themed baking for him. His hockey team, JPC HC, plays in blue and yellow and the first thing that came into my mind was minions – I’ve clearly made too many minion cakes! Is it possible to make too many minions?

It’s been a while since a minion has appeared on here so I thought it was about time I posted the last one I made (about 7 months ago now!). This is probably my favourite minion and I’d been waiting for somebody to ask me to make it so I was very excited when my Auntie Sarah asked if I’d be able to make one for my cousin Molly for her birthday. After I’d finished it I was really pleased with it, especially the expression – Ooooo, is that a cupcake?

20140205-201340.jpg Last weekend was an epic baking weekend – I managed to make four cakes and a batch of cupcakes. I’m still not entirely sure how I fitted it all. Especially since I had a cake disaster – my first one ever. I guess I was due one! I still don’t know what went wrong, but a sponge cake exploded – it was like a volcano. We tried a bit and it tasted like vanilla sponge should so I’m completely baffled. But anyway, back to the minion…

minion cakeI’ve made 3 minion cakes now, and I’m aware my blog is starting to look a bit like it’s been taken over by minions, but it turns out that everyone loves a minion cake so I keep getting asked to make them! So here is the third one I made. Minion number four will be created this weekend so I thought I should put up some photos of this one to spread them out a bit… Are you addicted to minions too?!

20140108-200258.jpg Last weekend I got to make another minion cake. I loved the first one I made for Tom’s birthday and really wanted to make another one, so I was pretty excited when he asked if I could make one for somebody he works with. Do you want to meet minion number 2?

20131119-202112.jpg In between making wedding cakes it was Tom’s birthday. He’s been away for the last few years on his birthday so I haven’t been able to make him a birthday cake. Therefore, this year, I wanted to make him a cake which would make up for the last few years. Not much thinking was required – he came back from a recent trip to Universal Studios with a minion water bottle, a minion mug and a set of minion pyjamas for me… so a minion cake it was!
