PS I see now that you were specifically asking about the mini blocks, 
whereas my answer was referencing the full Move and Motor blocks. 
Please pardon my oversight.

Just off the top of my head, if the mini-version of the Motor block 
lacks the "ramp-up/down" feature, then it should be possible to 
string together successive mini-Move blocks, with increasing power, 
to achieve a ramp-up-ilke effect.

Again looking for opportunities to teach about MyBlocks, it would an 
interesting student exercise to build a MyBlock that would 
encapsulate the set of successively more powerful Move blocks.
