Creeper Cake (from Minecraft)

Posted on 13th July 2012 in birthday/ cake/ LEGO

For Thing 2’s birthday this year I made a Creeper cake. Creeper, in case you don’t already know, is a character from a game called Minecraft. Thing 2 is completely obsessed with this game even though has hasn’t actually got it yet, so a Creeper cake was the obvious choice.

I started off by baking 4 cakes:

The top two are for his head and feet and the two below are for his body. I’ve lined them up so that I can cut them both to the same size.

I then taped two boards together and covered them with baking paper and assembled the ‘naked’ cake. At this stage it did strike me that it resembled something else entirely and I’ve made a mental note to self in case I’m ever called upon to make a cake for a hen do!

Then covered it all with (shop bought!) green icing.

Then finally, the hardest part was mixing some black icing as I unfortunately forgot to buy some – so at 1.30am the features were added and the cake was done.

Here are some other cakes that I’ve made.

    This looks cool. I have 3 huge mine craft addicts here. I’m sure your boy was thrilled with his cake.

      Ah thank you, it’s not as good as I’d hoped, would take longer and definitely buy pre-made black icing if I did it again!

    Thank you for posting the picture. My 16year old son wanted a creeper cake, I had no idea what it should look like. Your picture helped so much. He wanted the cake to explope like in the game. Well I sprinkled pop rocks on the cake right before serving it. He loved his cake. Thank you again.
