Minion Cupcakes

My minion cupcakes are done!

A few things I learned:
• Black frosting bleeds on the smarties!
• Twinkies taste like crap.... speaking of.....
• Blue frosting stays with you for days.

Come on over to my daily blog Creating Miranda to see a few step by step pics!

Brainstorming Minion Cupcakes

I finally saw Despicable Me and I just love those minions!

We've got a coworker birthday coming up next week, and I offered to make her minion cupcakes.

So googling got me a few variations on the theme.

Here's my plan so far:
• Funfetti Cupcakes in Blue liners
• Blue frosting
• Twinkie heads
• Smartie eyes
• String licorice hair
• Black "writing" frosting for accents

And a special minion with a tiny fork, candle, and party hat (maybe from a Hershey kiss).

Easter Brainstorm

I've got a batch of egg shaped cake balls waiting in my fridge for "enrobing". Instead of the usual frosting and cake mixture, I swapped out the frosting for caramel sauce.

Now I'm wondering if:
1) I can freeze the caramel sauce to a playdough like state.
2) Roll the viscous caramel into balls
3) Wrap the cake balls around it and recreate the egg shape.

Therefore creating Homemade Cadbury Caramel Cake Eggs!

*sweet glimmer of determination in my eyes*

I will attempt the freezing tonight!
