My middle child is turning 5. Because Minecraft is all the rage around my house he wanted a Minecraft party.
Because I have a seven week old I am tired and did not do a lot of planning ahead.
Somewhat last minute I starting searching Pinterest for a cake idea all things Minecraft party. I was totally impressed and completely overwhelmed by the cakes I found. They had fondant and cake spray paint and so much more.
I would love to one day take cake decorating classes, but as that has not happened yet I was looking for easy. Like really easy. It just didn’t seem to exist. So, I chose the easiest Minecraft character I could think of and went with it.
Here is my Creeper Cake.
Bake your caked in a 16x9in pan, cut it in half and cover with green icing.
For the face I used a Hershey bar. It only takes one. Four squares for each of the eyes, one for the “nose”, six for the mouth and a half a square for the bottom of the mouth. Done. My 5 year old will love it.
For the Minecraft decorations I used free printables from Catch My Party. The banner was so cute.
Diamonds- Blueberries (I didn’t think ahead, blue ring pops would have been great for this)
Gold Bars- Pineapple
TNT- Red twizzlers wrapped with TNT printable from here
Cookies- Mini chips ahoy cookies
Redstone- Red raspberries
Coal-Dark chocolate covered raisins
I also wrapped TNT & Creeper printable from here around some party poppers.
And there you have it – an easy Minecraft birthday party!
