Minion party madness

Hours of Fun headed to Formby recently for a 7th birthday party for Olivia, with a full on Minion theme.

After decorating the venue with lots of yellow and blue balloons and bunting, and some super cute Minion helium balloons, we then started the birthday party off with some badge making, then straight onto cupcake box decorating, where the children made some fantastic Minion boxes all ready for when they decorated their cupcakes.

This was the first time I had the pleasure of working alongside Jumping Jacks and they were fantastic.  They kept the kids entertained, lots of games and dancing and Minion Dave made a special appearence to dance with the birthday group.

Hours of Fun ran a Minion cupcake decorating session, where each of the children decorated 4 cupcakes, creating their own Minions with ready roll icing and buttercream.  Learning some different techniques and how to use a piping bag.

It was a fun packed Minion day and Olivia seemed to enjoy every minute of it.

We stuck around to help clear up, making sure Olivia got her handmade, personalised bunting to take home, then headed home ready to unpack and put our feet up after a Minion jam packed party.

The party was held at the Harington Centre in Formby which was the perfect venue for a party.  The hall is a good size, with kitchen facilities and lots of tables and chairs available.

 

Good minion and evil minion despicable me cake

I was asked if I could do a Despicable me cake and was given a picture of a tiered cake that included a good minion and evil minion – I knew this cake would be fun to make!

I made the minion’s from 6″ and 8″ round cakes, however if I did it again I would make the good minion from 4″ round cake to make it taller and slimmer.

The eyes were made from white icing mixed with tylo powder to strengthen it up.  I rolled the icing out, cut a thin strip out and then wrapped it around the outside of a circle cutter and allowed it to set.  I also painted it silver whilst it was drying using silver glitter mixed with rejuvenating fluid and a paint brush.

Happy birthday Meghanne, hope you had a fantastic party and enjoyed your cake.
