Sorry haven't been around much lately! April has been a crazy month for me starting with my son's birthday parties, yes there was more than one! Then there was Easter, and yesterday we celebrated my daughter's First Communion. Needless to say I will have a lot to share with you all, so stay tuned ;)
Today, I want to share with you the Minecraft "Creeper" Cupcake Cake that I made for my son's (friends) birthday party. I had already made him a Micraft Cake for the party we had for him with just the family. But this cupcake cake was a whole lot easier and quick to make :)
Here are a few iphone pics I took of the process and some tips on how to put one of these cakes together!
First, you will need to figure out how you want to lay out your cupcakes. Then squeeze them as close as possibe togther. This will prevent you from waisting a bunch of icing. To secure the cupcakes to the board just add a little frosting to the bottom of the cupcakes. This will ensure they do not slide around while you frost them! Then pipe the buttercream around the perimeter of the cupcakes and fill in the spaces in between. Cover the remainder exposed areas of the cupcakes with more icing.
Smooth the top of the cupcakes flat using and icing spatula.
I used black fondant for the face of my creeper. To do that, I just found an image online and printed it out. I then cut out the face and placed the image over the rolled out black fondant. Next, I used a sharp blade to cut out the shapes from the fondant. Place the face of the Crepper centered onto the cake... Now, wasn't that easy?!
Hope you liked my little "Creeper" Cupcake Cake, maybe even inspired you to try making your own :)
