In general, my boys don't have a lot of requests for their cakes.
Why? I don't know, maybe they are just kind to their mommy. LOL
For Ignatius, last year for his 7th birthday, I got away with cupcakes topped with my signature Perfect Swirl,
topped with Avengers images printed on edible icing.
This year, I tried my luck again. "What kind of cake would you like this year, Iggy?", I asked.
"Can I have minions?", was the reply.
Hmmmmm....... I have NOT made 3D fondant figurines before. Maybe I should say no, just in case I fail and he would end up
with a cake with ugly toppers. I had a discussion with my assistant (aka hubby). He asked me to go for it, because
if I do not try something different, I won't know if it will work out.
Hokay, I really didn't want to disappoint my son. So I said yes.
A couple days later, when he got home from school, Iggy changed his mind a little. "Mommy, you know,
I like the minions a lot, but I like Gru more!"
Erm....... I was trying to figure out what he meant.
OH! He wants me to make Gru too?!?!
I got into a little panic but was also secretly happy
that my son thinks I can make a Gru for him!
As the party drew near, I started working on the figurines days in advance. I decided to give the minions different arm positions, just to make each one look a little unique.
To complete the look, Iggy helped to make the little bananas out of fondant!
Aren't they just so cute?
