This was the first Minecraft Cake I made for Liam. While working with this cake, my son saw it and he immediately said that he wanted the same cake for his birthday. How can I not comply with his request, right? My only issue with that was the fact that it is not an easy cake. Just imagine yourself cutting those squares. I think I have cut more than 1200 for this cake. There were a lot of tutorials on Pinterest on how to make and place these squares on the cake.
First, you need to have a good square cake to make it. The cake here was frosted with Swiss meringue buttercream. I tried this technique from making and arranging these squares from this tutorial below…I can’t remember what happened but when I lifted them up to stick to the cake, everything(all the squares) fell on my work area. Maybe I should have waited a little bit so all of them were already stuck to each other before attempting to lift them up. I ended up placing these squares one by one though. I know it was a tedious process but I managed to finish the cake on time. And it did survived its journey to NJ.
This one was my son’s requested cake. For the cake toppers I just used his Minecraft toys. It was a little warm that day and the cake was starting to melt as you can see on the top of the cake.
