I included the next four cakes on this list because the ideas can work for a baby's first birthday or baby shower. Using the little cube blocks with the name of your little one on pastel colors gives the cake a baby touch.

These cakes are an excellent idea by Tortas Artina. If you are celebrating a double birthday for your little son and daughter, you can have a girl and a boy cake. Look how adorable these two cakes look together!

Alright, you may be asking, what if I don't want a Minion cake? So if you don't want everything to look too yellow, here are some ideas for cakes inspired by other Despicable Me movie characters.

What if we go back to the very beginning of Gru's villainy and include a cake with Vector, the other super villain in Despicable Me 1, and "El Macho" in Despicable Me 2. On this cake, I would include the diamond stolen by "Evil Bratt" in Despicable me 3, it will be a great cake idea to remember all of Gru's and the minion's main adventures!

If you love cookies or prefer to have a different option rather than fondant figurines, a good idea is to have all the minions made of cookies! Look how cute this cake by Petite Cherry is.

 We are coming to the end of this list of brilliant Minion cake ideas, and I still have to include one of the most used minion cake designs for single layered cakes, commonly used for small birthday parties or baby shower celebrations.

I could continue showing you Minion cake ideas, but I believe I have gathered some of the best options for your party! There are many variations of these cakes, but any cake you pick will surely make all your kids go bananas! You will also have to consider your budget, and how many people will you serve, so you can get an idea of what type of cake will be right for your celebration, this list, however, includes options for everyone.

The last of my recommendations are also single layered cakes, mostly used for small parties. So if you are planning to have an event with about 10-20 kids, one of these cakes might work for you too.

To complement this Gru cake idea, I would like to show you a useful video on how to create a Gru fondant figurine so that you can make it perfect for your cake!

Last but not least, the main antagonists of the Despicable me 3 movie: Balthazar Bratt or "Evil Bratt"!

And as Gru's brother helped to defeat this villain, may want to invite Dru to the party! Don't worry you won't have to teach him to be a villain!

You may be overwhelmed with so many things that need attention when planning an event. I hope you had enjoyed these ideas, and most importantly, I wish I was able to help you choose the perfect cake for your next Minions birthday party or baby shower celebration. At least the cake design won't be any more of a concern, and you can move forward to other important aspects of the party, like the decorations. 

Now, let's plan your next evil adventure!...... Sorry, your next incredible celebration!
