Minecraft Cake 1.0

This post is a VERY belated documentation of my niece’s Minecraft Birthday Cake from last August. At the time I guess I thought it was really too simple to blog about, and didn’t look like much, but have since learned much more about the world of Minecraft cakes. I thought I would post about this easy version first, and later this week about the more complicated one I just made.

First of all, if you don’t know anything about Minecraft, I can’t actually help you. Go read Wikipedia or something. My basic knowledge is that it’s a video game, you build stuff, it’s pixel-ated and all of my nieces and nephews have loved it at some point or other.

So last summer my brother explained to me that WITHIN the Minecraft game, there is a birthday cake, so if I could make a cake of the Minecraft Cake (follow me?) my niece Charlotte would love it. For reference, this is what the cake looks like in Minecraft:

Many of the similar cakes I saw in my research were covered in fondant, but I’m against it, so here’s how I made this super simple version:

  • Baked up the best chocolate cake in two 8×8 pans (that’s a lie, I don’t have two 8×8 pans, so I just baked the layers one at a time)
  • Mixed up a half batch of this chocolate frosting to put between the layers (I don’t use Ovaltine, just sub in more cocoa)
  • Mixed up a full batch of My Favourite Buttercream, removed about a 1/2 cup (which I tinted red) and frosted the whole cake.
  • Added the red frosting to a piping bag with a small round tip and added the red squares.

Like I said, it was pretty straightforward, but the kids thought it was cool. This is definitely the path of least resistance when it comes to Minecraft baking!
