After much deliberation with my son, we have settled on doing a minion cake for his birthday. It wasn’t a difficult cake to make but I always have trouble with covering a whole cake with fondant.
With the lack of practice and trials, the fondant layer turned out to be too thick (as I worried).
To best utilize the layered cakes (eating them isn’t), I tried making cake pops. The most tricky part turns out to be melting the chocolate and getting it to the right consistency.
