Despicable Me 2 in 3D PLUS a sweet recipe| Despicable Me 2 CAKE POPS

Posted on | July 4, 2013 | No Comments

imageMy daughter and I went to the Theatre to see Despicable me 2 in 3d – On July 3rd (1st day out in our little ole town theatre)….  Incredible that there were only 10 other people besides us there.. But we hit the 4pm matinee to get a break on the cost…

The movie itself was super fantabulous, it was so freaking funny I couldn’t stop laughing, it was sweet, it was funny, it had a love story, it had a connection for a father daughter, it head lessons in life for a teen with how LOVE SUCKS, and so much more.. I loved it. I Definitely will be buying it when it comes out.

I was also reminded as to why I do not go to the theatre very often at all.. LIKE, NOT HARDLY EVER AT ALL….  Because there is always that ONE or more Person (people) that completely dis respect the other people there that are there to watch the movie.. What do I mean???, I mean those Inconsiderate DORKS that can’t seem to turn off their cell phones, or watch their damn kids, or shut their kids up, (hey, I get that your kid is tired.. So take him home then you dumb ass) or just be respectful enough to take their screaming kids outside so that the other paying patrons can watch the movie OR AT LEAST HEAR the freaking movie that they PAID THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY ON ! ! !.. and YES, this woman DID have another adult there to watch her other children so that THEY could finish watching the movie, she could take the screaming kid outside to be respectful to everyone else there instead of being a selfish KNIT…  AND as my readers know.. I DO HAVE CHILDREN of my own.. and YES, I was in this situations many times.. What did I DO??? 

I was SELFLESS, I took my screaming squawking kid outside so that the other patrons could watch the movie IN PEACE, because I ( ME, I ) would not disrupt them, being that I ( I ME) was not being disrespectful to others.. That is to NOT BE SELFISH.. You know the word..the one that means you think of others before yourself…  Try it.. Some people find it melts that ice cold heart inside your chest……..

Okay, my rant is done…..

For What I DID get to see and hear of the movie I loved.. And I am sure when I buy the movie, I will be surprised to see parts that I missed from the insanity of the cell phones that were going off, the kids running up and down the isles and the insanity of the little boy that was screaming “NO MOMMY I don’t want to, NO MOMMY I don’t want to, aaaaaaaaaaaah NO MOMMY I don’t want to” as loud as he could for about 20 minutes, meanwhile “said MOMMY” was screaming back  “DAVY if you don’t shut up”  back to him each time, instead of following through with some sort of punishment or as I said, LEAVING THE DAMN ROOM…

Oh yeah, I said I was done with my rant.. OOPS.. MY BAD…

NOW I am done for realz this time.. lol..

Okay..  Fab movie guys. If you haven’t seen. YOU HAVE TO GO SEE IT..  PURPLE MINIONS, WAY TOO FUNNY.. That is ALL I AM SAYING….   GO SEE IT.. NOW FOR A SUPER fun recipe that will have the kids screaming for more… Serve it before you go to see the movie.


TO CELEBRATE THE RELEASE OF DESPICABLE ME 2
HERE IS A FUN RECIPE TO TRY!

Despicable Me 2 CAKE POPS

You Will Need:
1 box cake mix
1 16 oz can of ready made frosting
Yellow candy coating
Blue candy coating
Black or chocolate jimmies
Candy eyes (regular and jumbo)

Silver luster dust, clear extract and brush
Black licorice
Black and brown edible ink pen
Black confetti sprinkles, sunflower seeds
Toothpicks
Paper lollipop sticks
Styrofoam block

imageDirections:
• Bake cake as directed on package and cool completely.
• Crumble cake into a large bowl.
• Using the back of a large spoon, mix cake crumbs with
about 2/3 of the can of frosting. You won’t need the rest.
• Roll mixture into quarter size cake balls and place on a
wax paper covered baking sheet.
• Re-shape balls into smooth cylinders for Minion shapes.
Use wax paper to help make the shapes.
• Place shaped balls in the freezer for around 15 minutes to firm up.
Then transfer them to the refrigerator to keep chilled and avoid freezing.
• Melt yellow candy coating in a heat-proof plastic bowl so that the coating is about three inches deep for easier dipping. Melt in the microwave in 30 second intervals on Low, and stir in between. Repeat until melted and smooth.

Dip the tip of a lollipop stick into the melted coating and insert into the cake ball.
Dip and remove in one motion without stirring the pop. Note: If your coating is too
thick, you can add a little vegetable oil to help thin it and make it easier to work with.
• Gently tap off any excess coating. Place candy eyes and insert jimmies on top
of head for hair before the coating dries. Place in a Styrofoam block to dry.
• When dry, cut licorice pieces to attach to the Minions’ goggles. Attach to the head
using melted yellow candy coating as glue.

• Paint rims on candy eyes using silver luster dust mixed
with a little clear vanilla extract for the goggles.
• Finish the eyes using a brown and black edible ink pen
and white candy coating (optional) dotted on each pupil.
Draw in mouths with a brown edible ink pen.
• For the overalls, gently remove pops from lollipop sticks and dip the
bottom of each body in melted blue candy coating. Then reinsert the
lollipop stick and let dry. Apply more blue candy coating to the front for
the overall bibs using a squeeze bottle or a toothpick dipped in coating.
• Optional: Draw on overall straps using a toothpick. Then attach black
sunflower seeds for shoes using more melted blue candy coating. Pipe
or draw on arms using melted yellow candy coating and a squeeze
bottle or toothpicks to apply. Then attach black confetti sprinkles for
gloves and the logo patch on front of the Minions’ overalls.
