Despicable Me, Minion Cake

After a wonderful Summer with my little ones it's back to baking and what a great way to start with this little guy!


This cake was for such as special little boy. It was for his 5th birthday! Against all odds, Beau has lived to see his 5th birthday! We praise our Lord and Saviour for His goodness because little Beau was diagnosed with Menkes Syndrome at birth and often they don't live past 3.

Beau is such a blessing to everyone he meets. His smile is contagious and he simply loves sharing Jesus with everyone. Oh what a joy he is!!


I wanted this cake to be super special for Beau, so I came up with this crazy idea that I would make him stand. I've never done something like this before, expect the Rapunzel Tower Cake for my daughter. 

I had in mind the kind of structure I was going to use, but then I came across a tutorial and after going back and forth, decided to follow the tutorial as I'm not great at this kind of stuff. Well my little Minion guy decided to fight me on standing. It seemed that he simply wanted to sit down for Beau and after a few hours of debate with him, I gave in, but told him he needed to be on his best behaviour for Beau. He was and Beau completely loved him

To see this little boy's face was so worth my debate with Minion Guy! I would love to make another one though, just to see if he will stand for me.

Many Blessings to you this weekend
