If, like my boys, you are obsessed with Minecraft then you will need to see these:

The innocuous looking black coat, by the way, is for the secret geek; it looks like a normal jacket but has creeper style lining and a discrete logo here and there!

The lanyard is surely a ‘must have’ Christmas present for the professional Minecraft fan in your life?

For more products, yes more! head over to Jinx.

This is not a sponsored post, just a few things I stumbled across while looking for Christmas gifts for my boys.

Ssssssssss…

Did you see the Creeper Cake which I made for my 11 year old’s birthday?

Creeper Cake (from Minecraft)

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.
