3D Minion - Até já Inés

We had a visiting masters student from Portugal in our lab this summer. Long story short, I told her I’d make her a cake before she left. When Despicable Me 3 came out I learned that she really likes minions so then I knew what to make her as a cake.

He’s dressed in traditional Portuguese clothing (unfortunately his black pants and shoes don’t stand out against the black cake board). The rooster is made from modeling chocolate and painted with a new (to me) product, Poppy Paints. He is the Rooster of Barcelos which is one of the most common emblems of Portugal. The minion is holding the Portuguese flag (card stock) and (gumpaste) lavender which is their national flower. Até já means “see you in a little while” instead of saying good bye.
