Novelty cakes are becoming very popular, it doesn’t matter if it’s your child turning one or your wedding. People want fun and amazing cakes, it’s part of the entertainment now.
Some of the cakes being made out there are just ridiculously crazy advanced, I get dizzy just thinking about making them. But there are still quite a few fun cakes you can make, even if you’re not an artist or pastry chef!
A friend’s son turned 4 the other day, and she wanted a fun sheet cake for the party. Seeing as Minions are really popular now, I suggested a Minion cake. You can make them 3D, but they are just as fun as a 2D sheet cake! And so much easier.
This cake isn’t very complicated, but it will take you a few hours in total. It needs cooling, needs a little time in the fridge and so on while you’re making it. But, I am confident you can make this cake, give it a try!
The cake is made with the recipe for this chocolate cake. Use the exact same measurements, but use a rectangle baking pan measuring 23*33 cm. Line it with parchment paper to make sure the cake will release without problems. Bake on 180 degrees C for 40-45 minutes.
The frosting is also from the same recipe, with one change. Skip the cocoa, and add one tsp of Wilton’s warm yellow gel colour.
If you do try, I would love-love-love to see the results! Post a picture on my Facebook page, or tag me on Instagram @houseoftreatsorg
