I’ve always wanted to make a gender reveal cake, but I never
found out the gender of my own kids before they were born. And so far every baby shower cake I’ve made
(there aren’t that many of them) have also been for mamas to be who don’t know
But last June, I got together with some of my college friends
for girl’s weekend. And one of them was
expecting. And while she already knew
the gender and had shared it with her close friends and family, I took the opportunity
for a mini reveal!
I loved the minions in both Despicable Me movies, so
when my son’s Cub Scout pack asked me to make minion cupcakes for their Blue
& Gold Banquet, I was thrilled. The
theme was “Cub Scouts are One in a Minion.”
It was such a cute theme with some cute patootie minion
cupcakes to go along with it.
The cupcakes were lemon cupcakes baked in blue cupcakes
liners (recipe below or click for a gluten-free version and a boozy version). They were lightly frosted in buttercream and
then topped with MM fondant. I had such
a blast making the faces and giving each little minion his own personality!
