Minion fondant cake (小小兵翻糖蛋糕)

This is the cake that i make into with the Walnut butter cake.  My cousin's little girl (Cherise) turn 4 years old, she request her mummy to make her a 'Minion' cake. Her mummy ordered a Minion cake from a local bakery but Cherise don't like it. She comment that the minion cake doesn't look like a minion and it doesn't have the blue jumper on. Cherise's mummy WeChat me to make her a fondant Minion cake. I accepted the mission and  i try my best to bake the cake her little girl wanted!! Sound simple right..:p This is a challenging piece of cake >< i had hiccups here and there while making this cake XD 
**I baked her a Hello Kitty cake on her 1st birthday here
I show you this yesterday !! I think you might have guess what it is...

Yes, A Minion cake size 6 inches width and 8.5 inches height.
I used raw spaghetti to hold the black fondant for the hair.
用了昨天贴上的核桃奶油蛋糕食谱。做了2粒6寸圆形和1粒半圆形的蛋糕。(半圆形模可以在这)打好奶油霜就开工了。翻糖我用了一罐,白色的。颜色都自己调。头发就用了黑色翻糖把意大利面条包起来当支撑。整个过程还蛮好玩的。 只是在铺上黄翻糖时有点挑战。翻糖没铺好也不平滑还破了:( 告诉自己一定要做好),就再来多一片翻糖再铺一次。
After baking and cooling the cakes. It is time to assemble it.
With the Walnut butter cake recipe, i baked 2, 6 inches round cake and 1 half sphere cake.(see the half sphere mould here) While waiting for the cakes to cool. I prepared the mock cream to ice the cake. A whole can of fondant is used up for this cake. I used white fondant and tinted the needed colors with Americolor brand food coloring. It has to be oil base to achieve even color on the fondant.  When i first roll out the yellow fondant to cover the head. It didn't goes smoothly. The fondant wrinkle here and there. When i try to smooth it out the fondant ..tear into pieces XD. I had to remove the tear pieces and redo again another new piece. This time i cover the top (half sphere) part only. This makes it easier to smooth the fondant out. Then the second piece cover the body like a bath towel ..hehe. After the yellow part have completed the rest it not that hard to complete.

Phew!! finally,  mission accomplished.
