Sweets: Minecraft Birthday Cake

"My kids love Minecraft the video game. They play it together and separately and sometimes with me. I'm secretly a Minecraft junky too (shh, don't tell). When they aren't playing it they like to pretend they are in the game and our house turns into a mining/ building/ construction zone. This is why I wasn't the least bit surprised when Myles and Marina both asked for a Minecraft birthday party. I actually got a little bit excited because this is something I'm pretty familiar with and I knew we could make it really fun.
The birthday cake was a creeper head. He is that green bad guy sitting next to the cake, that likes to blow up and destroy everything around him. Myles loooves green so it was a no brainer what the cake should be. I saw several versions of this online and just tried my best to recreate it without making it look too sloppy. That probably didn't happen, I think it looks pretty sloppy, but Myles didn't care. He thought it was awesome."





"Marina requested I make an actual Minecraft cake. In the game you can make cake and it looks exactly like these. They are little brown squares with white on top and a sprinkling of red squares. Instead of cupcakes we had these little square cakes with white butter cream and red chocolate squares on top. They were my favorite. "


"The Red Stone is a stone that is used for electrical purposes. I created a pop rocks chocolate candy for this that was really fun to eat."


"There are also little red topped mushrooms in the game, which I replicated with marshmallows coated in red chocolate.

"We also had green Zombie Boogies, since there are zombies in Minecraft. I found the recipe for Green Zombie Boogers at Paper & Parcel. A genius idea of dying caramel corn green and calling it a booger. I love creative bloggers."
