By request, I made minion cupcakes for ladies' meeting this month. I had seen large cupcakes with the minion face, but all the ones on Pinterest had fondant frosting. They looked professional--nice, clean lines, but I only had regular "rich and creamy", 99 cent frosting. So I did something completely different from anything I've seen. I made mini cupcakes.
I drew out how I would decorate each one, so there would be four cupcakes per minion.
I scooped out a little bit of frosting,
and whipped out my handy food coloring!
I made the little overalls. The flash really whitened them, so while this picture is photoshopped, the blue really did look like this.
I used the plain white to make their eyes. Then I tried to make black.
Yeah, that's not gonna work. So I squirted in a bunch of red, blue, and green. This was the best I could get. It looks greener than it really was, I think because of the bowl.
With my "greenish-gray is the new black", I made their hair, goggles, and mouths.
I made up some red for their tongues.
Who am I, you ask?
In 2006 I had a stroke, and every day my husband encourages me to use my remaining brain cells to the best of my ability. I love to organize, make crafts, and go on adventures (safe ones). I hope that through my blog posts, you will be encouraged to accept and make the best of challenges God throws at your life.
