Introduction: Minecraft World Cake

Picture of Minecraft World Cake

Here is a minecraft world cake I put together.  Really quite easy and very popular!  We went out for laser tag for my son't birthday and several people came up to take pictures of the cake!

I made a double batch of chocolate cake (I only make cakes from scratch, I use the Betty Crocker Best Chocolate Cake recipe)

I baked this in a 1/4 sheet cake pan.

I then cut out hunks of cake and assembled them on a Simple Additions large platter from Pampered Chef.  The plate measures 15 inches square to give you an idea how big the cake was.

Underneath and in between layers, I put a thin layer of chocolate filling to keep the layers from shifting.  Then I put a flat layer of green frosting on the top of each section.  The recipe I use is 1/2 cup shortening, 1/2 cup butter, 1 Tbsp vanilla, 1/2 Tbsp meringue powder, 4 cups powdered sugar and approximately 2 Tbsp milk to thin.

I thinly sliced rice krispie treats to create the beach.  I used a sharpie to draw the squid directly on the plate, then covered the water area with blue gel icing.

The trees are make of cut up rice krispie treats.  I then mixed food coloring, 1 Tbsp corn syrup and 1 Tbsp water to make a paint for the trees.  I'd let this dry at least a day before using, as it was a little gooey.  Otherwise, dry them with a hairdryer.  The tree trunks are kit kat bars.  I inserted toothpicks at each end to attach the tree top and to stabilize in the cake.

Steve, the Creeper and the pig came from  However, the creeper is bigger than Steve, so you may want to google minecraft papercraft to find a different set.

When I made this (I'll post pictures later), I actually made 2 different batches of rice Krispies. For the beach, I cut the recipe by 1/3. I then did a full recipe and added the food coloring to the marshmallows while melting them. It worked amazingly well and then I made Creeper Krispies with the excess. I used a lot of food coloring. About 12 drops blue and double that in yellow. Otherwise, it's more of a turquoise color.

Not as good as the original. The icing wasn't as dark as I hoped but that still used whole tube of colouring! Husband took hours making the figures. Daughter v impressed though.

Thanks for the idea! The cake was a total hit at my son's 6th birthday! I used blue Jello for the water. The cubes were kind of hard to cut but didn't turn out too bad. :)
