Minions Themed Cupcakes

Kevin, Bob, Stuart… who’s your favorite Minion? I love Kevin for his leadership skills. Truly, it’s hard to just choose one: they’re all so adorable!

I am so happy with how these Minion Cupcakes turned out. If you’re planning on hosting a Minion-themed birthday party, then you’ve just got to try these. They’re easy to prepare and will be a hit with your guests… guaranteed!

How to Make Minions Cupcakes Recipe with Ladyfinger Cookies

Prepare vanilla cupcakes according to the box’s directions and allow to cool completely.

Using an electric mixer, beat butter, icing sugar and milk on medium and gradually increase the speed to high. These ingredients will make up your buttercream. It is ready once the ingredients are well-combined, smooth, and form stiff peaks. Add blue gel food coloring and mix until completely tinted.

Frost each cupcake with your buttercream.
