I had so much fun making this cake, it is just so darn cute! I was asked to make Aroni a minion birthday cake. He wanted the minion to be playing hockey. His mom thought it might look a little silly since minions don’t really play hockey, but I made it totally work! Since this was my first minion cake, I just had to wing it. I stacked a bunch of 6 inch cakes (maybe 5) and one rounded cake for the top. The rounded cake was baked in a small glass bowl that I greased and floured well. The shape is very simple, all the details really bring the cake to life!
I decided to go with the minion with one eye to give the cake more impact. My set of round cutters really helped me out here. I cut out the white part of the eyeball then cut two tiny rounded strips of yellow for the top and bottom edges for interest. I cut out a little piece of brown for the iris, colored it with black lines using a food coloring marker. I added a black dot of fondant in the center and a tiny white dot as the eye glimmer that bring all cartoon characters to life. The goggle was made with gray fondant that I painted with silver luster dust. I made the buttons on the overalls using a fondant button mold, and the stitches in the overalls using my stitching roller tool.
To make the hair, I wrapped half of a toothpick in black fondant and curved the edge. I made a bunch of strands of hair in different heights. Then I let it dry to keep the proper shape. Once the fondant was dry, I pushed the toothpicks into the cake wherever I thought they should be. Happy Birthday Aroni!
