- a half bar of bitter chocolate;
- syrup for impregnation;
- coconut chips;
First of all, let’s work on the cake base. To do this, knead the biscuit dough. Chicken eggs must be whipped, separately dividing the yolks from the proteins.
They must be whipped separately from each other.
Sugar is divided into two equal parts. One portion is sent to the yolks, and the second — to the squirrels.
We continue to beat both masses until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Next to the whipped yolks add the third part of the protein mass and mix. In the egg mixture, pour the sifted flour. Then add the rest of the proteins and gently mix again.
Lubricate the baking pan with butter and flush with flour (remove excess). After which the dough is poured into the form, filling 2/3. With the proper kneading of the dough, the cake should increase in size.
Send the form to the oven for half an hour. Ready the cake to cool and remove from the form.
Now proceed to the preparation of butter cream. For this you need to combine water and sugar. Then set the cup on the fire, wait until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Stir and remove from heat. This is how easy and simple to prepare a syrup.
Take three yolks and beat them. Pour syrup here and continue to beat with a mixer. In another bowl, beat the softened butter and combine with the egg-sugar mixture.
Beat until a homogeneous consistency.
Separate half of the cream and add a yellow food coloring. Lubricate the cake and send in the fridge for half an hour. Then again cover the cake with cream and smooth the entire surface.
Re-send in the fridge. The rest of the cream should be divided into two parts.
One set aside for now, and the second is painted with blue dye. We put it on the cake, form a jumpsuit, and close the joint with a strip of melted chocolate.
Optionally, you can make a contour of liquid chocolate around the perimeter with the help of a syringe. We send a children’s cake with minions in the fridge.
Now we make eyes to our “hero”. To do this, cover the round chocolate cookies with white cream.
As a pupil, you can install candy (chocolate from the boxes). Cut a circle out of the toffee, coat it with syrup and crush with coconut flakes or sugar painted silver.
We set the eye and glasses on the right place.
Using melted chocolate through a syringe we draw a rope for glasses and a mouth. And also you need to make hair cartoon hero.
With the help of chocolates we make buttons on a minion jumpsuit. Children’s cake «Minions» is ready.

Standing Cake Minion
Cakes with minions fell in love with children in many families since the release of the cartoon «Despicable Me.» Mothers immediately began to fantasize how to make their child satisfied. And they came up with decorating cakes under cartoon characters.
Minions can be done in different ways. Either cut out the desired shape from the cake and continue to decorate, or make the standing minion.
That is the second option, we now consider.
- 700 grams of mastic;
- biscuit cakes — 9 pieces;
- cream (650 ml custard, 300 oily).
- The first step is to make sponge cakes. You can do this by any recipe you like. The method of making cakes is described in detail in the first recipe.
- If you have one form, you can independently make two more. So the cooking process will go faster. Forms are made simply from foil with a diameter of 16 cm.
- In the meantime, let’s do the preparation of the cream. For the custard will need 8 yolks and 2 tablespoons of flour. Thoroughly stir and pour half a liter of cold cream.
- We put everything in the water bath, stir. Cook until thick. Cool the finished cream and add 250 grams of butter. All well whipped.
- We collect the cake. Put the first cake in the center set a wooden skewer. Next string the remaining cakes. We coat each tier with cream. Wrap the cake with cling film and put in the fridge until it hardens.
- Now round the top and cut off the bottom to make it look like a minion. We cover the whole surface with cream and put it in the fridge.
- Take the yellow mastic and wrap our figure.
- Getting to the decoration. Roll 2 sausages and leave to dry. Mastic can be painted gray (food dye) and cut glasses.
- Take the blue mastic. These will be the pants for the minion. Along the edge with the help of the fork do «seams». From the same blue mastic do back and breast. That is, should get overalls. Do not forget the straps.
- Attach pens. The joint can be fixed with a toothpick. From white mastic cut out the eyes and make pupils (candy will do). Buttons can be made from them. We also make a strap for glasses from mastic, just paint it black. In general, all elements of the decor are made of mastic, only if necessary, it is painted in the food dye of the desired color. Set the minion on the dish. Our cartoon cake is ready!
