Aren’t these little guys great?!?! When I showed Aaron the link for these cupcakes he didn’t skip a beat and asked if we could make some. We had no occasion to make them for, but who needs an occasion for cupcakes? Then we decided that these would be a fun Family Home Evening treat. So he made some yesterday!
FYI: Finding white smarties takes A LOT of little packages of smarties. Most of them are pink and purple, but that was even better for the kids because they liked snacking on the extras.
Frosting the cupcakes in blue to match the minion’s over-alls.
Each minion is made from a half of a twinkie, two smarties, and colored icing for the eyes and glasses. Aaron couldn’t wait to finish frosting the cupcakes so that he could lick the knife. You can see the evidence on his face
After adding the smarties he decided that he was done with frosting and putting the minions together. So I took over with the eye details.
And here they are! Be sure to check out the link for more Despicable Me party ideas! She did a fantastic job!
