Our Minecraft Birthday Cake was the most successful part of our Minecraft Birthday Party! The birthday boy was ecstatic to see his cake being built out of cake, Rice Crispy Treats, Kit-Kat's and Jolly Rancher Gelatin. All of the kids wanted a Tree with grass and a bit of Jello!
We used a Wilton Grass Tip: 233 to add the grass affect on top of the dark chocolate cake mix. The trees were created by mixing green food coloring into the rice crispy treats, then I put a sandwich bag bag over the smallest Rubbermaid container I have that is square, and I packed them in. Using the sandwich bag, I just pulled on the bag and it pulled out a perfect square. We waited until they cooled to the touch but before they completely hardened and we stuck the Kit Kat Candy Bars into them. We waited until two hours before the party to assemble the cake. Because the cake was two big to be refrigerated, we have a chest freezer that we put the cake into to keep the jello solid. We applied the trees right before the cake cutting to insure no tree's fell. Overall great fun to make, eat and show off! Overall, not truly extensive on cooking or decorating, more time was spent on planning and production than baking or frosting. It was a great Minecraft Birthday Party
and it would not have been possible without our inspirations! Check out some of these cakes! They are so neat! What gamer wouldn't love a Minecraft Birthday Cake?
This was such a great tutorial oh how to make the grass and cake mix. I was running short on time so did not do the outer crumb layer and the cake was dry because of it. Next time, I do believe the crumb layer is in order!
This was a great tutorial! It was nice to watch someone create the cake before we did, just to hear about their experience! I love YouTube!
This is where our Kit - Kat inspiration came from! I was trying to make them into small boxes, but they were more difficult to handle than I had expected and I was trying to shape mine while they were still hot.
And this was the ultimate decision maker on what type of size we were wanting, although we made our smaller because we had around 20 people, we didn't need a whole lot of cake left over.
Thank you so much for checking out our Minecraft Birthday Cake as well as the inspirations that brought us our vision of our very own Minecraft Cake!
