Minion Buzz Lightyear Cake

What is it about these crazy little minions that everyone just loves?  Well, they’re cute, silly, fun-loving and ever so slightly ridiculous, so what’s not to love?  If the new Minions movie opening today is any indication, they’ve long outgrown their humble Despicable Me past to shine brightly on their own!

Today’s cake was for a little boy who just couldn’t decide between his love for these fellas and another childhood fave – Toy Story‘s Buzz Lightyear!  If there’s ever a day to get everything you want, surely it’s your birthday, so I combined the two, into a minion wearing Buzz Lightyear’s outfit!

From all evidence, minions do love playing dress-up, so I thought this would be appropriate.  Of course, he had to get all the details of his costume right!  In this case, his outfit (and the whole cake!) is entirely edible, including some tasty modelling chocolate wings.

One small creative update: while Toy Story‘s Buzz had Andy’s name on his foot, I thought we’d update this one with the birthday boy’s name!

Well, I hope this birthday was “to infinity, and beyond” (and full of giggly minion-noises)!
