Universal Orlando Resort shared a photo of the prop this morning. When we entered the park, the cupcake was impossible to miss.

Team Members were celebrating the cupcake’s installation with their own smaller (but still big) version of the cupcake and Minion treats.

The giant cupcake is on the corner of Minion Café facing the future Villain-Con Minion Blast attraction.

It’s topped with a red cherry and a Minion with binoculars.

A thin tube pokes out of the cherry and, upon closer inspection, this appears to be the Minion’s undercover tank.

Maybe the Minions are hoping to take care of the Villains next door at Villain-Con.

Crew members were still working on the roof this morning.

A week ago, we caught a glimpse of what appears to be a “Café” sign under a tarp.

The Florida version of Minion Café has a façade resembling multiple city buildings. It will be much bigger than the Minion Café at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Read a Minion Café review from Universal Studios Hollywood. The Florida version will reportedly have a similar menu but with a few different items. Universal will push mobile ordering at the new quick-service restaurant. They started hiring Minion Café Team Members last month.

It’s rumored Mel’s Drive-In will close for a refurbishment at the end of this month and Minion Café will open around the same time. It will be part of the new Illumination Avenue land.

Illumination Avenue will include the pre-existing Despicable Me Minion Mayhem — which just had its façade refurbished — as well as the new Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast and Minion Café.

Villain-Con Minion Blast replaces Shrek 4-D, which permanently closed in January 2022. Villain-Con was featured in the first “Minions” spinoff movie, and the ride will feature various villains from the franchise, including the Vicious 6. The ride will purportedly be a shooting attraction with guests on a moving walkway.

Villain-Con Minion Blast and Minion Café are scheduled to open this summer.

Production Central is also home to Transformers: The Ride 3D and Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit. At this time, the exact layout of Illumination Avenue is unclear in terms of dividing the area up as the Minions attractions currently sit between Transformers: The Ride 3D and Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit.
