Have you ever heard of the computer game called Minecraft? I don’t know much about it but a few weeks ago a woman came into the cake shop and asked us to make a cake that looks like this Minecraft logo…
My thought was, “No way lady.” But I asked my boss and she said, “Of course we can.” I thought, “Wow my boss is so creative! She must have some cool technique to make this cake. It will be exciting to see what she does.” But last week she came up to me and said, “Well, we have to figure out how to do this Minecraft cake…why don’t you think about it and see what you can figure out….” WHAT???!!!
So I looked around online and found a pattern that I printed off and folded into a cube for a model.
I decided to use fondant pieces to make a mosaic looking cake.
It was a very monotonous process since it had four sides but it turned out great.
I also put the “Minecraft Pickaxe” design on top. I’m still not sure what all of this Minecraft stuff is all about but the woman who ordered the cake had a huge grin on her face when she picked it up.
