Easy Minion Birthday Cake + Cupcake Ideas!
My friend Lindsay made this cute Minion birthday cake for her son – and guys, it could not be easier. Go ahead and say yes. Even if you have never decorated a birthday cake – you can do this one!
There’s no need for step-by-step instructions here – no secret tricks you need to know. You’ll just need a cake mix baked in a 9 x 11 pan and plenty of icing. (Icing from a can works fine) Achieve bright vivid colors like she did by using Wilton gel colors instead of the dropper kind that water your icing down.
Spread the yellow and blue on first, and then pipe the decorations on top in black, grey and white. You can load your icing into a ziploc freezer bag and snip the corner off to make a piping bag – or if bags are uncomfortable for you to handle – this Wilton Dessert Decorator is super easy.
Having a big crowd, or need to send some to school? No problem – Lindsay had this cute idea for Minion cupcakes too! This is another one you just can’t fail on – honestly, why would anyone spend $25 on a store bought cake when you can whip up these cute cakes in no time!
