Another cake that I had to research! I've never in my life played Minecraft. I've never even seen anyone else play the game! So when I had a request for a Minecraft birthday cake I was totally lost with what to do! When I looked online for ideas every single cake I saw was the green and brown square made with hundreds of tiny squares. Well, I like to do something different when I can, so when I came upon this picture, which is done with CHALK, I knew I had found what I wanted to do! I actually would like to do this cake again sometime and make it look even more like the picture and add all the stuff around that middle square. Someday....
I did all those little squares on one large, very thin piece of fondant, then stuck the whole piece on at once. Kind of like back splash tiles. MUCH easier than trying to put each individual square directly on the cake and hoping they'll turn out right!
My son kept saying how cool the sword was and that the blue sword is the most powerful! Little did I know!
It was fun doing a boy cake and even writing differently on the little tag. Happy birthday Xander and Quentin. Two very lucky boys!
