Does it get any more hilarious than this? These minion cupcakes are made out of Twinkies. They are such a fun treat to make with kids and are easy to customize! Use Smarties candies and frosting to add eyes, a mouth, and glasses!
Aren’t these little minion cupcakes great?!?! We had no occasion to make them for, but who needs an occasion for cupcakes? We found them online and knew we had to make a batch for the family (link to inspiration below).
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!
