The Lovely Baker made this Marvelous video tutorial that shows how to make a Captain America Minion Cake. She takes 5 inch round cake layers and shows how to stack, dowel, and cover the cake in buttercream icing and get it smooth. She rolls out blue fondant and covers the top and then the bottom of the cake. She demonstrates how to do all of the details of the Captain America outfit and the Minion.
