Despicable Me Birthday Cake

You have a couple Easy options when it comes to your Despicable Me Birthday Cake. One is using the Despicable Me Edible Cake Images. These images are completely edible and just lay on top of your Baked and Frosted Cake. You can then add some edging using Icing or Candy to finish off the look. They are so easy to use and you can even get them personalized in most cases.

The other option available is the Gru vs. Vector Cake Topper which is a Kit that comes with Gru in the plane, 3 Minion pics, and 1 Vector pic. Gru cake topper measures approximately 3" and your child can play with it after you are done with the cake!

Either one you chose will make it easy for you to create your Despicable Me Cake and both would look great.

This is my Creation - Minion Twinkie Cakes

Every time I saw one of these Minions in an ad it made me think of Twinkies. So when I was writing about a Despicable Me Birthday Party I thought I had to create them and that is what I did.

These Minion Twinkies came out so cute and they were not that hard to create either - Kids love them. Best part is that I share how you can make them too Step by Step on my Party Blog.

Despicable Me Cupcakes

If you are a Cupcake Fan like me you have some options here too. One of them is using the Despicable Me Cupcake Rings that are available. These Cupcakes Rings are shaped like Minions along with a Despicable Me Logo Ring. These are so easy to use. Just Bake and Frost your Cupcakes any way you want and stick one of these Cupcake Rings on the top. Not only do they look cute, but the kids can lick off the frosting and wear them to take home.
