While my mom and I were taking a cake class at the Wilton School, we had a very nice Skype call with my nephews.  They told us that they were planning to be minions from Despicable Me for Halloween.  We also had a very entertaining conversation about whether or not they were building me a chicken coop.  The details of the chicken coop joke are kind of hard to explain, but basically I decided to take the joke to the next level.  So I made the cake I was making for class a minion / chicken coop cake.  Then I carried it back home on the plane.  It was greeted with shrieks of joy.

This is a cake that I made for a class at the Wilton School on tiered cakes and buttercream.  I don’t do many buttercream cakes or many traditional tiered cakes, so I’m pretty pleased with the results.  It’s not as impressive as many of my cakes, but I think it’s still pretty fun.
