I made this cake for my 8 year old son who absolutely loves Minecraft. The cake was baked, left to cool and cut into the diamond sword shape. I looked at my sons minecraft diamond sword that is in one of the pictures as a guide for the shape and colors. The following day I mixed all the frosting colors.
From start to finish it took me 5 hours with no breaks to apply the frosting colors. This was my first time making a minecraft cake and it was a fun and learning experience. The cake tasted great and was nice and moist. My son was amazed and was very happy to have such a cool cake for his birthday! He told me he wants another minecraft themed party when he turns 9. I think I may attempt to make the big square cubed grass!
