Despicable Me Minions Cupcakes

Fortunately I had some fondant left from the Ferrari cake.  White, Black Yellow and even red.. But here is no role for my red fondant. Soon I will come up with trolled out some other project to use them. I need some grey!! So I mixed some white and black to get that grey.

Now the fun part… I took some white fondant and rolled it out. Using a small round lid I cut some circles for the white part of the eyes. I laid them all out on greaseproof paper.

Then cut out some rings using grey fondant. This time I used slightly bigger one than before to cut out the outer circle and used the same (I used to cut white) to cut the inner circle.

I brushed each white circle with a little water, then carefully lifted the grey rings and placed them over the white circles to make the eyes.  I left it dry and started covering the cupcakes with the yellow fondant.

I made up a small batch of butter cream and spread it over the top of each cupcake. Then topped each cup cake with a circle of yellow fondant, which I had cut out with a circle cutter that matched the size of the cakes.
