Embracing a Healthy Family: Our Despicable Me Birthday Party Using Photofrost Edible Frosting Sheets and Silhouette Die Cutter

Our Despicable Me Birthday Party Using Photofrost Edible Frosting Sheets and Silhouette Die Cutter

My niece loves Despicable Me so this year, my oldest and I created a party for her. Although I ran out of time, here is what I ended up with and will see what else I can do tonight to add on.  The NMR 24868 Despicable Me Minions Decorative Poster and malt balls were purchased via Amazon.

My oldest made Minions out of Wilton Round Brownie Pop Mold bake pan and used Sweet Tarts for the eyes.  We used edible markers for the eye portion and black licorice for the hair, glasses and mouth.

I used the Graphtec Silhouette Craft Vinyl Cutter Kit w/ ClipArt CD to make the apothecary jar labels and my printer to print the Minion stickers.  I also made cupcake picks out of the prints.  The water bottles were made from stickers I made and printed.

The cookies were a basic sugar cookie recipe from Wilton that makes the ideal cookie for taste, texture and cutting.  I used cookie shaped printable/edible images for the cookies and decorated them to help hide the seam.  PhotoFrost offers the icing sheets, ink and much more.  They also have great customer service.

The little favor bags are easy to make.  Again, I used my Silhouette Die Cutter to make the labels and used the sticker images to add to the cover.

I still have all of tonight to make more things like a banner and more.  I'll have to see what I can come up with.

Apparently using Twinkies is probably easier but we wanted to try the brownie bite molds and regular cake too. My oldest made them! Thanks, Gina!

Wonderful idea using the printable stickers. Did you get them at the office supply store?

Thanks for sharing,

I bought them so long ago! I think I purchased them online from Avery but I think you can get them at craft or office stores. :) Thanks!
