Sometimes life requires creme brulee and french macarons.
Sometimes life requires Minion Cupcakes. haha Right now I’m embracing the part of life that requires Minion Cupcakes.
I’m sure that most of you know, but for those that don’t, the Minion Movie hit theaters back in July and I’ve seen Minion stuff everywhere since!
I haven’t seen the movie (YET) but I have seen Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 and these cute little minion are in those movies too!
My niece, Savannah, loves the Minion and when I saw a Minion cookie decorating video on Facebook from Flour Box Bakery I shared it and knew that I wanted to make them.
However, cooking decorating and I don’t get along most days so I just kinda of put it in my “maybe I’ll make these one day” folder.
BUT, since those Minion Cookies were decorated to look like Minion Cupcakes I decided to use that inspiration and make my own Minion Cupcakes!!
Of course you can totally make everything from scratch but for these, I didn’t. I wanted the vibrant blue and yellow colors without the work.
Here’s what I used:
Pillsbury Funfetti Aqua Blue Cupcake Mix (plus the items to make the cupcakes)
Pillsbury Funfetti Neon Yellow Icing
Chocolate Frosting and Candy Eyes
These Minion Cupcakes are really easy to make and they would be perfect for a Minion Birthday party or for a fun filled adventure day in the kitchen with your favorite minion lover!
Now go and make Minion Cupcakes!! If you make them, share them on Facebook or Instagram with #bigbearswife so I can see them!

Makes 12 Minion Cupcakes
(Click to Print)
2/3 cup water
2 cans Pillsbury Funfetti Neon Yellow Icing
1 can chocolate icing
24 candy eyes (I find them at Hobby Lobby)
*You’ll also need piping bags and tips* I used a M1 for he swirls and large round tip for the goggles.
Pre-heat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, mix together the cupcake mix, egg white, oil and water. Mix well.
Line a cupcake tin with white or blue cupcake liners and scoop the batter evenly into the cupcake liners.
Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.
Scoop the yellow icing into a bowl and whip on high (in a stand mixer or with an electric mixer) for 5 minutes. This will make the icing fluffier and it will give you more to work with.
Place a blue cupcake on a flat surface
Fill a piping bag fitted with a large star tip and pipe a star in the middle of the cupcake. Then swirl the icing around the star and up to a peak.
Fill another piping bag fitted with a large round tip with the chocolate icing. Pipe a band around the middle of the yellow icing.
In the front of the cupcake pipe, two dots on the band (for the eyes).
Push a candy eye into each dot.
