Geek Girl - Minion Invasion!

Minions are everywhere lately, and this week's Geek Girl roundup is almost completely full of these adorable little guys. I admit that I haven't seen Despicable Me 2 yet, though I did laugh myself silly over the first movie. I'll definitely have to catch the sequel once it comes out on disc, and I'm excited about the Minions movie coming out in December 2014!

From the top left:

  • This adorable Minions wedding cake by Gelly's Cakes was featured on Between the Pages
  • Craftberry Bush is a regular find in my Friday Favorites roundups, but this week their Minion pencil toppers made the geeky list.
  • I have no idea what the story is behind these Minion Tic Tacs, but someone in marketing missed out on making these candies a reality.
  • In one of only two Minion-less items on this week's roundup, Wil Wheaton's wife, Anne, tweeted a photo of this hilarious Big Bang Theory cake for her husband's 33rd birthday. In unrelated news, the scene depicted is Darren's favorite out of the entire series. :)
  • Why, yes, Minions do look suspiciously like bananas. :)
  • Minions and Firefly might possibly be the most epic mashup ever, and you can even get it on a t-shirt!
  • Letting the Minions have the TARDIS as depicted in this awesome cake might possibly be worse than the weeping angels getting hold of it. 
  • Dress yourself like a Minion in this cute little pinafore
  • And, in the last bit on non-Minion news, Pottery Barn Kids has a new array of Star Wars items in stock, including Return of the Jedi bedding.
