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.
