My son loves Minecraft, especially Stampycat. So a homemade Minecraft birthday cake was the only way to go for his birthday.
We bought two store-made half sheet cakes and then cut off one end of both to turn it into a perfect square (because everything in Minecraft is square.)
We also bought a ton of green icing at the grocery store bakery. I got all of the fondant products on the Etsy website. I got the TNT candles from one seller. They’re just candles wrapped in paper (Watch out, though, they make big flames! His friends had to help him blow out the candles.)
I got the little squares from a different seller (I had intended to put them all over the cake, but they were smaller than I had expected.)
I bought the three Stampy characters from one seller and the rest of the Minecraft characters from another.
Different sellers also sold Minecraft plates and napkins, goodie bags and a Stampy pinata. We also bought Minecraft stuffed toys and balloons on ebay. The kids loved it!
