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?!

Minecraft Cake | DIY Cakes

Last week my son entered his double-digit years!
The BIG 10!!! I'm still wondering how this could have happened so quickly, at this rate he will be an adult soon! It feels just like I brought him home from the hospital last week 😥

This year for his 10th Birthday he wanted a Minecraft Themed Cake. Like so many other kids, he is a huge fan of the game and loves playing it! I honestly don't know what the point of the game is but I like that it is a very creative game, and I'm all about creativity!

Here is his Creeper/Minecraft Cake!

This cake was baked in 9" square cake pans.

Bottom 3 layers were chocolate flavored and the top 3 vanilla. The entire cake was frosted with vanilla buttercream icing, covered and decorated with fondant.

Measured 6" tall.

Here is my big Boy!
With the cutest smile on his face as he's trying to hold up this heavy cake! For those of you that follow me on Instagram, you would have seen this picture I posted last night ;)
