Wow. It has bee quite a long time since I had posted hasn’t it? I am so, so, so sorry about that! I was meaning to catch up on my blogging but I have been so busy with school, SAT studying, work, and got sick recently. . . but I’m back and ready to keep y’all updated!
Pintrest is my favorite tool to use if I ever need help finding creative ideas on the internet. Recently, I needed a good prom proposal to do for one of my good friend and I decided to do minions because . . . well . . . who doesn’t like minions?! These cupcakes are soooo adorable I just want to keep them on display forever! Everyone who laid eyes on these babies were so amazed and begged for one to eat. Need a dessert that will absolutely impress the crowd? These minion cupcakes are right for you. Happy Eating~ 🙂
- 1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist cake mix (any flavor)
- Water, oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
- 2 containers Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
- Blue liquid or gel food color
- black liquid or gell food color
- 12 twinkies, cut in half
- rainbow jimmie sprinkles, or any sprinkles of your choice
- piping bags, or zipblock bags
- Heat oven to 350°F. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes. Cool cupcakes completely on cooling rack, about 15 minutes.
- Reserve on container of frosting and set aside. Place the other container of frosting in medium bowl; tint with blue food color. Frost cupcakes with blue frosting. Smoothing the top and the sides with your metal spatula (or whatever tool you are using, such as a buter knife).
- Carefully place your sprinkles onto a plate (I find that bowls are hard to reach into) and carefully dip the sides of the cupcake onto the sprinkles so only the sides will have the sprinkle decoration. Repeat with the rest of the cupcakes.
- With your reserved container of frosting, have three small bowls ready to go for you. One for the white, one for the gray, and one for the black. Place about 4 tablespoons of frosting into one of the bowls for the white eyes. Place 2 tablespoons of frosting into one of the bowls and tint with black food color for the mouth, pupil, and hair. Place 2 tablespoons of frsoting into one of the bowls and tint with gray food color for the border of the glasses.
- Fill your piping bags with your colors and get creative!
