Minecraft "Creeper" Cupcake Cake | DIY Cakes

Hi Everybody!!! 

Sorry I 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 Minecraft Cake for the party we had for him with just the family. But this cupcake cake was a whole lot easier and quicker 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 layout your cupcakes. Then squeeze them as close as possible together. This will prevent you from wasting 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 the spaces in between. Cover the remaining exposed areas of the cupcakes with more icing.

Smooth the top of the cupcakes flat using an 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 Creeper centered onto the cake... Now, wasn't that easy?!

  2. What kind of food coloring did you use to dye the icing? And how much did you use? Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Diane, I used a wilton gel food color. Hard to tell you how much because I just added a little at a time until I got the color I liked. Hope that helps!
