A couple weeks ago i joined this certain giveaway since Im such a foodie fanatic and crazy about adorable stuffs. Since the Despicable Me - Minions are such a craze and who can resist them they are soooooooo charming. When i saw the blog post I couldn’t help but take a closer look just look at these adorable cupcakes aren’t they too cute to eat? So i gave it a shot and maybe lady luck will favor me.
Its always been a habit of mine once i woke up to check my phone for messages and emails afterwards. So when i opened my email I saw a message from the Certified Foodies and I had to open it right away cause i couldn’t believe what I saw. After reading the email, I jump out of bed of joy, of all who joined I was chosen. I message them back as well as Sugar Stop to thank them and ask when can i pick them up, I was really excited to see then cupcakes and taste it as well, hmmm double chocolate! It was truly an advance birthday treat, cakes are way too mainstream for birthdays haha kidding, but I can settle for a cupcake treat. :D
I finally got the goodies last sunday August 4 and when I saw them I just couldn’t eat them right away. I share the cupcakes with my love ones of course. They are just too darn cute to eat and I didn’t want to destroy the design. Being a culinarian I know how much work you have to go through in making these lovely cupcakes and all I can say hands down to the people behind Sugar Stop, the details are just spot on and each piece is carefully cut and shape. From the eyes to the hair of the minions and to add the packaging is so nice as well definitely made from love. :)
I had fun taking loads of pictures with the goodies before finally eating them. :) Mostly are just impromptu shots cause I was in a rush to head to work and just had to take a picture before they eat it up. I came up with a funny concept of taking some shots of the cupcakes with my minion toys, its much more fun and I couldn’t let the design / expression of the minions gone to waste.
I was able to taste the cupcake the day after since I got home really late and I was really tired. When i took a bite of the cupcake, yes just the chocolate cupcake without the fondant just yet it felt like heaven. Chocolatety goodness in every bite. It wasn’t too sweet at all which is just the way how I like it and it was still soft and moist even though I ate it a day after. I’m not really a fan of eating fondants though (I’m just plainly not a fan of really sweet / sugary foods) it tasted just the way how I remember it should be but it suits well with the flavor of the cupcake.
Again THANK YOU to Mhel and Ken of Certified Foodies ( http://www.certifiedfoodies.com/ ) for hosting such an awesome giveaway and of course to Marj and Jin of Sugar Stop ( https://www.facebook.com/sugar.stop ) for making it possible, it is definitely an awesome shop and worth it.
Here’s a few fun shots I took. :)
Tim and Stuart are planning something and somehow cupcake minion has a hunch on what it is so he’s keeping an eye on both of them.
Oh no! Dave is trying to grab a cupcake for himself. Cupcake minion is in shock and doesn’t know what to do or how to get away from being eaten.
Tsk! Greedy Dave trying to eat all the cupcakes just for himself.
Another point of view of the evil scheme Stuart and Tim are planning. I think they convince Dave to steal the cupcakes for them.
Teehee! :> So here ends my little blog post about my minion goodies.
