My daughter is obsessed with Minecraft. I made this cake for her birthday, and she loved it.

I'm not a baker, but I do like to go above and beyond to make my daughter's birthday special. This year, she wanted a Mineraft cake and I came through with this easy creeper cake.

How to Make a Super-Easy Minecraft Cake

When my daughter turned 10, I wanted to do something special. After all, you only hit double digits one time before it isn't exciting anymore. When we were discussing her birthday, her dad and I gave her two options: a big birthday party and a small gift, or a big gift and a small party.

She opted for the small party and big gift (she gets that from her mama).

However, I still wanted to impress. Unbeknownst to her, I scoured the Internet trying to find a cake she would remember for years to come. One of her favorite things in the world is Minecraft (seriously, she's obsessed), so I hit Pinterest to get some ideas. Finally, after being "pinspired," I was ready to create the perfect birthday cake.

I documented my process with photos and written directions below so that you can make this cake, too. I promise, it's easy and it looks amazing!

Step 1: Bake a Simple Cake

The first step is to bake and cool a simple cake. You can make it from scratch or use a box mix. I opted to cook my cake in a lasagna pan because I don't have the best decorating skills. As you can see, my cake cracked, but it really didn't matter because of the way I planned to decorate the cake.

Step 2: Make (or Buy) Green Frosting

I wanted the top of the cake to look like it was covered with grass, so I used green frosting. I love buttercream frosting, so I ordered this from my local bakery. I told them I wanted a grass green color, and it turned out perfect.

Step 3: Frost the Cake

Minecraft creepers have a boxy, pixelated look, and I wasn't sure how to re-create that on a cake. So, I opted to go for a grassy look. If you have a Minecraft fan in your life, you know that grass is a huge part of the game, so it makes perfect sense for this cake. I used a large decorating tip to create a grass-like appearance across the entire sheet cake. Then I used the same tip to create larger dollops all around the edges of the cake.

Step 4: Create the Creeper's Face

After the entire cake was covered with green grass, I was ready to start creating the creeper's face. I have plenty of Minecraft memorabilia all around the house, so I copied what I saw.

Before placing the chocolate pieces on the cake, I would recommend mapping it out on a piece of paper first.

This is how I made the face:

  • Eyes: 2 squares of chocolate
  • Nose: 1 square of chocolate
  • Mouth: Solid bar of chocolate that was three square wide and nine squares long. Below the solid bar, I added two more squares (see photo below).

Tip: I opted to turn the squares of chocolate over to hide the breaks and word Hershey.
