AI am making a Dispeciable Me Minion cake for my son. I don't know what would be the best way to make this 3D figure. Should I do cake? Or rice crispy? Never used rice crispy. But would like to know how and what would be best?! Please help!!

Do you want your whole cake to be a minion or just a topper?

AI made one last year for my son, I also used half of the Wilton sports ball pan and 6" cakes. I covered mine with buttercream. Arms, legs and overalls are fondant. [IMG ALT="Minion covered with buttercream. Arms, legs and overalls are made with fondant."][/IMG]

What great cakes!  I did one for DD and DN's joint 21st last year.  I hadn't even seen Despicable me - so it was a little tricky.

Look here for inspiration ;)

Start from a cilindric Yellowstone gumpaste; 2 holes for eyes. Fill with white and than cover with Blue paste for clothes
