Minion Fruit Platter
Ingredients for Minion Fruit Platter
1. 2 Pineapples
2. 2-4 quarts strawberries
3 1 quart blueberries
4. A couple of pineapple leaves
5. Printed Minion eyes. I bought mine for the Dollarstore. If you shop online here are some.
Cut your fruit into small pieces starting with the pineapple. Assemble the pineapple into a minion shape on your platter first
Add in the blueberries as the Minion overalls. finally add the strawberries for the background.
Add in a few blueberries to add a smile to the Minion. Finally, add your printed minion eyes to the Minion’s face.
I also improvised and added a few pineapple leaves as wispy hair on top of the Minion’s head.
I just blew up a few yellow balloons by mouth (NOT helium), then added some printed Minion eyes with scotch tape.
I used a black Sharpie marker to draw on some funny Minion mouthes and hair. The balloons were stuck to the wall with tape and they stayed for the entire party!
For this Minion party idea, I used a yellow bristol board from the Dollarstore as the background.
To make the huge goggles, I took a dinner plate and traced large circles onto a white bristol board and cut them out.
The same thing was done for the brown circles and finally colored in the pupil with a black Sharpie. I also cut a couple of rectangles out of black construction paper for the goggle straps.
Everything was taped into place using double sided tape.
I free handed the wording with a font similar to the Minion movie title and finally added a couple of pictures of my son to finish things off.
Easy Minion Cake Idea: Edible Paper Cake Topper
This cake was made by our local Grocery (Sobey’s) store, it was a delicious half chocolate half vanilla slab cake topped with a whipped vanilla icing.
I’m a big fan of their cakes- they are really tasty and they bake them fresh the day of.
They also make it very EASY to print out customized designs on edible paper. This makes the cake a little more unique and doesn’t cost very much extra, since you design it yourself.
I used Canva to design the image and then just gave the bakery the jpeg file on a USB stick and they printed it out and placed it on the cake for me.
I’ve included this Free Minion cake printable topper at the end of this post, just in-case you would like to use it for your little Minion fan! When printed out it should fit nicely on any half slab cake.
By the way, I am not affiliated with Sobey’s, I’m just a big fan of their bakery cakes – I’ve been buying them for years!
My son was so excited he went straight for the blue icing and almost took a chunk out, before we lit the candle! Ooops!
Hope you enjoyed my simple Minion party ideas. Let me know what you think and feel free to share them!
