Minion Cupcakes!

Brandy over at Brandy's Crafts shares this cute idea for making minion cupcakes.  I love the movie Despicable Me and these little beauties fit the characters perfectly!  Who doesn't love a good Twinkie once and a while?  An added incentive to making these tasty treats is that they are kid-friendly.  I can imagine how nice it must be as a mom to sit back and relax while the kids busy themselves for hours, perfecting their creations. Brilliant!

  1. Hi Shelbey! Thanks so much for sharing these and also sharing emiliehandmade's link as well. Now to browse your blog...

  4. how do u make them

  5. It's just regular cupcakes (chocolate and vanilla) with twinkies as toppers. For the face, you can use white miniature sweet tarts or check the baking aisle of your grocery store for googly eyes. The rest of the face is drawn on using a frosting bag with a topper of your choice (in this case, a straight line topper). Hope this helps! :)
