cylinder shapes made by keeping two cup cakes on top of each other

Are you a Mum who gets a challenge every time your child celebrates birthdays? You certainly are not alone. Ever since I decided to follow a course in cake decorating my kids and kids who are close to me come up with great ideas for birthday cakes that I could make for them. Recently my daughter celebrated her 11th birthday and all she wanted was a minion cake. Easy, I thought but then came the challenge. She did not want one big minion cake, she did not want small minion cupcakes: both could have been easy creations. But it wasnít going to be easy. My daughterís challenge for me was that I should make mini minion cakes for each of her guests. I did take the challenge and the end result delighted my daughter and her little guests

Preparation Time:2 hours
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Makes:12 cakes

24 medium size cup cakes for 12 mini minion cakes
Butter cream

Fondant in the following colours

Cake board
Edible black marker

Place one cupcake on top of another, securely pasting the two together with butter cream.
Trim the sides of the cupcakes for it to take the shape of a cylinder.
Cover the cylinder with butter cream.

Leave it aside for half hour for the butter cream to harden.
Roll out the yellow fondant and cover each cylinder of cake and trim around. Now they should take the shape of minions.

Cut out little squares of blue fondant and paste it in the middle of each cylinder. Be sure to leave a larger head space.
A thin strip of blue fondant can be pasted right round the bottom edge of the yellow fondant covered cylinder.
Another thinner strip should be pasted around the upper edge to look like the straps of the dungaree.

Cut bigger circles of white fondant for the one eyed minions and two little circles of white fondant for each of the others. Paste the circles on the minions face.
Then thin strips of black fondant should be pasted right around the cylinder like a band holding the minions goggles.
I used different types of hair with black fondant. The hair that is standing on the minionís head was made by covering toothpicks with black fondant.
Once all fondant accessories are placed and pasted on the yellow covered cylinder shapes, draw the eye balls and the mouth with an edible black marker.
Gently place them all on a cake board.
