Revisiting an old favorite this week….MINECRAFT LIVES!! This is the cake that started it all 4-plus years ago when I made it for a cakewalk at my kids’ school. It was fun revisiting my buddies Steve, Creeper, and Pig…
I’ve gotten better at making the fondant figures and the cake has gotten a bit bigger, but the basics are the same.
This is a 10″ 2-layer cake (chocolate/vanilla) with cookies and cream filling and chocolate buttercream icing. The “dirt” on the sides is made from crushed Oreo cookies pressed onto fresh buttercream and the grass is piped vanilla buttercream tinted green.
The figures are handmade from homemade marshmallow fondant. Believe it or not, I’ve had requests for this cake from as far away as New Zealand! Although I don’t ship the cake, I have sent the fondant figures all over the globe! Apparently the Mincraft craze is alive and well!
Hope you had a terrific birthday, RJ!! I really enjoyed making your Minecraft cake!
