How to Make a Minecraft Cake




Introduction: How to Make a Minecraft Cake

About: Hello! My name is Antonia and I am an English literature & Journalism graduate with a passion for food and all things vintage!

As the title suggests, we’re going to make a Minecraft cake today. This will require some assembly and some patience – you don’t know how difficult it is to make a cube cake until you try it! As I only have round tins, my version is a bit more complicated, but if you have the time, money and oven space to spare, you should be okay with simply baking three layers of square cake and then stacking them.

Since we want to recreate the ‘dirt’ part of the square without any additional icing, we will be baking a hazelnut and chocolate cake today. I had trouble finding any ground hazelnut in my local supermarkets for some bizarre reason, but found out that they are incredibly easy to grind in your average food processor! Just whiz two handfuls at a time and you’ll be done in no time.

Just as last time, we’re working with icing to create the grassy top. Marzipan works just as well, and if you can find it already coloured that’s even better! A helpful tip is to roll out the icing on greaseproof paper and then simply put it on the cake while the icing is still attached to the paper – it makes it a bit easier to work with and you won’t run the risk of accidentally stretching the icing out of shape on your way over to the cake.

And with all this said, here is the recipe!

300g self-raising flour
300g caster sugar
250g ground hazelnuts
230g butter
5 eggs
150g chololate
500g icing
1/2 bottle green food colouring

Bake on a medium heat for approximately one hour and do get in touch if you're unsure about any of the steps!
