[Pinned It]: Minion Cupcakes

I’m going to start a new “series” on the blog called Pinned It.  It will feature things that I have seen on Pinterest and attempted to make myself.  I will warn you that this may turn out bad.  I always see things on Pinterest that I want to try, but then I sometimes think that I am being to ambitious for some of the things I “pin”.  Posting it on the blog will give me a little motivation to move out of my crafting and cooking comfort zone.  I promise to post whatever it is I make regardless of the outcome.

My first Pinned It post will be the Minion Cupcakes I made for my sister in law.  It’s simple things like this that make me wonder, “Why didn’t I think of that?”  It’s amazing what you can do with Cloud Cakes (Twinkie Wannabe), Smarties and food coloring.

Sorry for the bad picture.  I only had my point and shoot and it was at the restaurant.

Minion Cupcakes


1 dozen cupcakes (homemade or store bought)
6 Cloud Cakes (Twinkies if you can find them) cut in half
Smarties (pick out the white ones)
Canned Frosting
Black Gel Food Coloring
Thin Paintbrush


Start by drawing eyes on the Smarties, I did use a food coloring pen for this. Add a little frosting to the back of the Smartie and place on the Cloudcake.

Next, take the paintbrush and dip into the food coloring and draw the google straps and mouth.

Once that is done just palce the Minion on top of the cupcake.
