You may remember the Mine Craft birthday cake we posted back in October from Asa’s birthday. If not, you should definitely check out the photo in the link. Bonnie outdid her sculpting/culinary skills by fashioning together chocolate cake, rice krispies treats and jello into a rendering of the pixelated topography of the uber popular game. It was a huge hit with all the boys, especially Asa, the birthday boy. Aiden’s birthday was our most recent and he also wanted a Mine Craft cake for the occasion. In order to do something different, Bonnie created – or, I should say recreated – a cake that can be made in the game by the players.
Since the boys know the exact details of each element of the game, this cake had to be accurate. With chocolate cake, ganache and some red and white fondant, she made this it to the exact pixelated specifications. The boys loved the way it looked and we all thought it was delicious. I just wonder how many more times and in many many different ways we will be able to make a Mine Craft cake. Avery’s birthday is up next, but we have a few months until then. Hopefully by then, they will be into a new game or fad.
