This has to be one of my favourite cakes to date. I was asked to do a Minecraft cake for my cousin who is Minecraft mad. I had never even heard of Minecraft so I had to do a little bit of research before I could start this one.
I wanted this cake to be different so I decided to try a checker board inside, using two different colours of green and two shades of brown. I didn’t want the outside to be covered in fondant so I decided to go for buttercream and Oreo biscuit, this gave a muddy effect with piped grass on top. This was the first time I had ever done fondant characters so I was glad it was all square.
The cake inside was two layers of vanilla and two layers of chocolate sponge all pieced together with a chocolate ganache. The top of the cake was a vanilla buttercream coloured green and the sides were covered in Oreo biscuit. I finished the cake off with a printout of the Minecraft letters.
