All about the Minions


Dude #2 turned 10 and he loves the Despicable Me movies so a theme for his party was soon found.
I made sweet Minion birthday cakes, angry minion cupcakes, decorated cookies with edible minion prints and of course the M&M's and skittles were sorted in matching colors.

Stroopwafel cupcakes with cinnamon frosting

Dude #2 didn't want to treat his classmates to evil minion cupcakes at school, no he wanted something different.

So he went through my cookbooks, pinterest board and found stroopwafel cupcakes with cinnamon frosting.

They were very tasty, everyone loved them and looked cute too, good choice !

Bake Sale at school

Whenever there is a fair at one of the dude's schools I make cakepops for them to sell, reason I do this is because there are always plenty of ladies making cupcakes and there's always an overload of those.

These are a few of my soldoutin5minutes cakepops that I donated

Doh ... A Simpsons Party

When boys get to the teenager age, there comes a time when kiddie parties are no longer appreciated. Good thing I can still go all out on the big grown up party .... Dude #1 loves the Simpsons so that was his theme for his 12th birthday bash.



We served cakepops brownies, oreo's, choc chip cookies, brownies, mini donuts, M&M's, hamburger candy, red licorice.



As you can see the top cake (I alway smake 2 layers) was donutshaped and that posed for some decorating challenges with the marzipan. But I rocked the bottom layer though !

Dude #1 took these to school for a birthday treat, everyone loved them and nobody knew these had to be in pushops rather than this naked version ....
