This idea for a Minecraft dirt cake came from a desert that actually exists and it is made out of dirt... real dirt, and it was made in Japan. I thought to myself that making a cake out of dirt is too hard and I am not very experienced with cooking with dirt (obviously). So I decided to make the dirt cake out of a normal chocolate cake mix and crunched up Oreos. To make the cake even more fun I made it into a Minecraft grass block by adding green m&ms on top. This
- Chocolate Bars
- Chocolate Mix (and all of the ingredients needed, by 2 mixes if needed as well)
- Small balloons
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Chocolate Cake
For the first step you will need to get your chocolate cake mix and all of the ingredients for the cake. Start mixing it.
Step 2: OREOS!!!
Crunch up the Oreos however you want an put them into the cake mix.
Step 3: Put Some Heat Into It!
After pouring all of your cake mix into a a glass (sort of container) put in into an oven. On the box of the mix it says hoe many minutes and what temperature. We bought 2 mixes and used 2 so we had to use twice as much ingredients, and twice as much time.
Step 4: Chooooooooocolate!
While the cake is in the oven, you can start on your "chocolate bowl" for serving. Start by melting some chocolate.
Step 5: Chocolate Balloon!
When your chocolate is melted, you can fill up a water balloon with water to dip it in the melted chocolate and put it on the plate to and put it into a freezer to freeze up the chocolate, when it's frozen pop the balloon (you don't have to use water but instead use air, but when popping the balloon be careful the the balloon won't stick to the chocolate).
Step 6: Cake Cake Cake Cake Cake... It's Not Even My BIRTHDAY!!
When the cake is ready take it out and cut the cake into cubes so it will look like Minecraft blocks.
Step 7: M&Ms!
Pour some left over melted chocolate on top of the blocks to stick on the GREEN m&ms, green because it makes it look like grass.
Step 8: OREO + MINECRAFT
Now that the chocolate bowl is ready, put some more crunched up Oreos and put the Minecraft block on top.
Step 9: Ready... Set... EAT!!
That's it, you're finished. Now you can eat your delicious desert that is especially fitting for children. If you have any left overs you can just be creative and make something of your own.
