Minion Cupcake Cake

This is how I made my Ube (purple yam) Minion cupcake..  Enjoy!

Come see how I made it in this youtube video.  Don't forget to subscribe for more updates!

Used Wilton tip 1M to create the rose pattern on the cupcake.  Start pipping from
middle cupcake and out.
To create the eyes...
 You will need 3 different sizes of round cookie cutter (3", 2.5, 1 inches, white fondant, grey fondant (goggle frame), light brown fondant (iris), and black fondant, large ball tool, and piping gel.  Cut out a 3" circle out of grey and white fondant.  Set aside in large ziplock bag.  Cut out a 2.5" circle in the middle of the grey circle.  This will be the frames for the minions goggles. With a small brush apply a small amount of water along the perimeter of the white circle.  Lay down the grey frames on top of the white circle.  Using a ball tool (See pic bellow) make an indent on the bottom centre of the white circle.  Place the brown 1" circle in the dip.  Make a 1/4" ball and place in the middle of the brown circle.  To create the look of glass on his goggles brush a small amount of piping gel all over the white fondant and eyes.  Do not apply piping gel on goggle frame.

This is the ball tool I used..
I used the larger ball of this Wilton ball tool (purple) to make the indentation on the white fondant and the smaller
ball to make the indentation in the middle of the iris.

Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed

I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.  

The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less.



2 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
2 cups all purpose flour ( add a bit more if the mixture sticks to your hand)
3 tablespoon of milk ( add more if final mixture is dry)

Olaf Rice Crispy Sculpture

Build a snowman in the summer with rice crispy treats and buttercream.   I can't say I miss the snow because I am perfectly happy with this warm weather.  Just in case, here is one way to make a snowman in the summer.  But before that here are some pics from my niece's Frozen themed birthday party.

Here is how I made Olaf....

You will need:

3 preparations of rice crispy treats (found in any Rice Crispy cereal box)
about 150 g brown fondant
60 g orange fondant
250 g black fondant
250 g white fondant for eyes, teeth, and cheeks
1 preparation of shortening base buttercream
3 large bamboo BBQ sticks
1 foot bendable florist wire
gardening sheers

Make Olaf's head first since this will determine the size and the proportionality of the whole sculpture.  The recipe found in the Rice Crispy cereal box is perfect amount to make Olaf's head.  Use the microwave method to make a chewy and more malleable rice crispy treats.  Let the treats sit for a maximum of 8 minutes…
