To celebrate the up-and-coming Despicable Me 2 film release, baking blog created these adorable minion cake pops inspired by the film's fun-loving, yellow, bug-eyed minions.

Made from delicious yellow cake batter, these minion cake pops look identical to the CGI versions from the film. Like any standard cake pop recipe, these minion cake pops start with crumbled cake mixed with frosting. Rather than shaping the crumbled cake into tiny balls, these minion cake pops need to be shaped into small cylinders. After dipping them into yellow-dyed chocolate, decorate with tiny eyes, yellow arms and gray goggles. After these minion cake pops have set, you can stick them onto lollipop sticks and eat away.

Dressed in cute little miniature blue overalls, who could pass up munching on one of these delectable confectionery treats?
