I know most children are in to minecraft these days, So when i came to owens 13th birthday i thought decorating a mine craft cake would be the perfect idea.
Ive never iced a cake before so this was my very first effort and i thought squares would be easier.
I made two chocolate cakes in a 10 inch tin. I basically used a chocolate cake recipe and made quadruple the amount so i had enough.
I covered it in green fondant and was quite pleased with my efforts. I started to decorate it with small squares of icing which i had cut up. The figures have been supported with toothpicks.
As i had plenty of left over icing i made some matching cupcakes which were great as we were going out for tea.
As you can see Owen was thrilled with it and so was Harry.
Now i just have to decide what cake to make Harry this week ! watch this space .TFL.
