DIY Minecraft Cake

So when a 10 year old wants a Minecraft cake for his birthday and you have no clue what Minecraft is (yes, I’m probably one of few who doesn’t know how the game works), you start searching online for easy diy cakes.  I found some cakes that were really complicated and too big for a small family celebration. Add to that a 13 year old that doesn’t like chocolate and I was in trouble.  Most of the cakes I found online were chocolate. It was time to get creative. I took ideas from several different sources and put them all together.


What you’ll need:

2 Boxes Betty Crocker Super Moist cake mix

1 Container of Betty Crocker Whipped frosting

Wilton black Sugar Sheets (1)

8in x 2 in Wilton square cake pan

Wilton food coloring (green)

1/2 cup crushed up Oreo cookies

1/2 cup crushed up Graham Cracker cookies

decorating tips


Prepare cake according to instructions on the box.

Separate 1 cup of the batter in another bowl


Place a few drops of green food coloring in the bowl that has the 1 cup batter


Mix well and add more coloring until you get the color you want


Place batter in the pan – make sure to grease and flour the pan first


Drop spoonfuls of green batter in to the pan


Swirl the batter around with a knife


Bake cake  according to instructions on the box.

*****Repeat all steps above for the second layer. *****

While the cake is baking, crush 1/2 cup Oreos and 1/2 cup Graham Crackers in a food processor and mix in a bowl. This will the the “dirt” for the sides of the cake


I went online and printed this image to use


I simply cut out the shapes and used them as a stencil by placing them on top of the black sugar sheet.


This is how the sugar sheet should come out once it’s cut.


Once cooled try to make the cake flat on top


Mix a few drops of food coloring in to the frosting



Cover your cake with the first layer of frosting and put in the fridge for 1/2 hour


Remember the cake will be covered so it doesn’t have to look pretty

Place your second cake layer on top and cover with frosting


Now just cover the sides of the cake with the crumbs

This is what the cake starts to look like on the sides


Use any decorating tip to make the edges look like grass. I had my 2-year old helping with this part.


Place your sugar sheets on top and here you have a very easy Minecraft cake!
