Nothing fancy required for these adorable Despicable Me cupcakes—just frosting, food coloring, candy and your favorite flavor of cake mix. Use blue baking cups for an extra special Minion touch. Hint: if you don’t have black licorice handy, Betty members suggest subbing in more of the black decorating gel.
Minions Cupcakes. Homemade chocolate cupcakes and blue-tinted vanilla buttercream frosting as the base. The minions are made with 1/2 Twinkie, chocolate jimmies for the hair, plus white Smarties and chocolate frosting for the glasses and smiles.
