Minecraft Sweet Treats

Posted on October 21st, 2015 in Cakes, Cookies, Cupcakes

One of my best friends, Dessie, gave me the opportunity to work on a Minecraft project. They were ready to celebrate her son’s 7th birthday with a Minecraft theme and I was up for the challenge.

My son is a huge fan of this game. I don’t understand it and to be honest it makes me dizzy just looking at  it. Noah was part of this cake and cookie making process from beginning to end as he “educated” me about the game, the characters and the purpose of the game (which I still don’t understand, but I won’t tell him that).

This is my second time making a Minecraft cake. The making of it can be… very time consuming.

  1. You need to take the time to color the material (fondant) into many shades of each color. 3-4 brown and 3-4 green and a few grey.
  2. Measuring (and later cutting) the squares can be tedious. You have to take into consideration the size (height and length) of the cake to make sure that the squares will fit properly. It can be a pain in the … neck.
  3. Once you know the exact measurement of the squares you have to cut and cut and cut. It really takes a lot of time if you don’t have some specific tools. I don’t, so I had to make rows and rows of fondant strips and cut them individually.
  4. Once the squares are cut, the process of putting the cake together is easier. This is the fun part of the cake process.

The cake was a very decadent chocolate cake so to add to the variety, I made vanilla cupcakes. Specialty toppers with TNT and Creepers’ shapes.

The cookies were thank you favors. My son Noah was in charge of telling me what to make and which characters or items were more important in this very famous game. The whole set included: TNT, Creepers, Pigs, Pixel Axes, and I must not forget Steve.

Mario Bros – Treats

Posted on July 18th, 2013 in Cakes, Cookies

This is a Mario Bros cake designed to celebrate a birthday.

The cake topper consists of a fondant star brushed with lots of glitter (that you probably cannot see here) and a Super Mario chocolate design.

The next three shots are just closeups of some of the cake details. The cake decorations are both fondant (mostly) and chocolate pieces.

We also created 1-up mushroom sugar cookies and stars to go with the cake. The sugar cookies are covered with Royal Icing. Again, if the eyes are not correct then I have to discard it. Trust me… I made a few mistakes.

I absolutely loved those mushrooms. I don’t own the mushroom cutter, but the round cookie cutter worked out perfectly.
