Despicable Me 3 Themed Breakfast

Hello!! It's been a long time since I last updated this little space of mine and I hope all is well with everyone. Today, I'm back with a tutorial post of one of our favourite character, Minions. Since Despicable Me 3 is going to hit the cinema soon on 15th June 2017, I came up with a Despicable Me 3 Themed Breakfast, I'm going to share step-by-step photos in this post, so you can create your own too.

12 I chose to make Minion Mel for my boy's breakfast. He's made out of cheese, ham and nori. I dyed the ham blue using butterfly pea flowers. I've shared about this method before, it's always tricky to get nice blue colored food naturally, so a great way to do this without using artificial food colourings, would be to use butterfly pea flowers.

Without further ado, let's start off with the steps to create your own Minion. Prepare (by printing or drawing) your desired Minion image.

Trace the chosen Minion image with a marker, on a baking or parchment paper.

Place the (cut) tracing paper on your choice of food (eg. Cheese), and cut food along the paper outline.

You could use cheese as the Minion's body, and cut out the drawn parts with a knife, scissors, or toothpick.

To create the Minion's overalls, dye a piece of ham blue by soaking in butterfly pea flower or blue food colouring mixed with hot water. Remove ham from the water when you are satisfied with the shade of blue, dry ham on kitchen towels before using.

Cut the ham along the outline of tracing paper with a cutting knife or scissors.

Assemble the Minion's body and overalls.

With a pair of scissors, cut out the nori (Japanese seaweed) for the Minion's details.

For the Minion's eyes, cut out cheese by using a piping tip or a round cutter. For the Minion's G symbol, use a knife or scissors to cut out from nori.

Finish off with the remaining nori details, and place Minion on a slice of charcoal bread.

Draw Minion on fruit - banana with black food marker.

Finally, complete the nutritious Despicable Me 3 Themed Breakfast with scrambled eggs, tomatoes, broccoli, and a cup of Magnolia milk. To save time in the morning, you can also prepare Minion the night before, cling wrap and store it in the fridge in an airtight container. Simply take it out and place it on your bread the following morning, and you will have your kawaii breakfast in no time.
