I was pretty excited when I was told that we would be making a Despicable Me cake and that Gru would be the main character with one of his minions next to him, all the characters are cake, there is no rice cereal in this cake or styrofoam! lol. Gru was about 12 inches tall and nearly just as wide and he was carved out of cookies and cream cake with an Oreo cream filling. I used two 9inches, two 12 inches, two 14 inches, and then covered in fondant, the minion was made out of three chocolate 6" rounds. I hope you guys enjoyed this picture.
