My step daughter is VERY into Minecraft. And with her birthday quickly approaching, I decided to try and do something special for her. I am an artist, but not a cake decorator... so I figured I would create a cake that I could actually pull off. But, when it comes to themed cakes, attention to the details will make or break the cake. I have seen a lot of Minecraft cakes online, but most look like a bakers interpretation of Minecraft, and misses the mark. So I paid very close attention to the colors, shapes, etc, yet still make it edible :)
Step 1: Design
I started out with a quick sketch of what I was thinking. Partially for my self, and so that I could show my daughter whom is a pastry chef, to get her input on my idea. She thought I was being ambitious with adding the Jello.
Step 2: Supplies
Next I headed to Walmart and got everything that I needed. I was surprised that I could find everything there, so that saved me some driving around. In the photo I only show 1 box of Jello and 1 tube of white frosting, I actually used 3 large boxes of blue Jello and 2 tubes of white frosting.
