I did not find making them hard...
I used fondant with gum tex mixed in it to make them sturdier and harden faster..
Step 1: Making The Minion
I made my eyes first the the goggles then cloths then arms & hands the finally hair.
Take a small amount of white and make a flat circle, then put a small dot if black fondant in the middle.
Next take silver or gray fondant and shape it into a circle to go around the eye. Use a small amount of water to glue these two together. Then put on your minion body using a little water as glue.
Next make the little band and brackets for the goggles. This done by take a small amount of the silver/grey found shaped in a snake like shape and glued to side of goggles. Band is just a long black strip glued to circle from one side of the he'd to the other.
