If you always thought the Minecraft cake was tasty, now you can taste it! What a great idea! As a Minecraft player and someone who likes cake, both in real life and in the game, I wanted to share with you a special list of Minecraft cake ideas, perfect for parties, birthdays, or just because Minecraft and cakes are both really good!
Top 20 Best Minecraft Cake Ideas
1. Minecraft Village Cake
Every village is different in Minecraft. This cake idea by Ann Reardon from HowCookThat is pretty impressive for a variety of reasons. It has a farm bordered by wooden logs, a sheep, a large house, trees, a steve, a pig, a small house, and a hut.
There is no right or wrong way to build your village cake because they are randomly generated but it is always a good idea when you are making a Minecraft cake to have some sort of plan before you start cutting into it. To start with, you will need to draw a template design.
You will need three trays of chocolate cake and two batches of ganache mixed with buttercream. To make your buildings use melted chocolate to join the bricks together.
2. Minecraft Cake
One of the most accurate Minecraft birthday cakes on this list is made with only a few ingredients, and just like many things in Minecraft, this cake by Bingingwithbabish has a beautiful cube shape.
Even though not game recipe accurate, this cake idea from Minecraft, is a sturdy yellow cake base with a white chocolate French buttercream frosting, topped with sweet berry coulis squares.
To design those signature red squares on top of the cake, it is a great idea to use a sweet berry coulis, to create a nice glossy, red, beautiful berry mixture. Sweet berries can be found all throughout Minecraft. Throw this cake into a 350-degree oven, it will take around 60 to 70 minutes until it’s done.
3. Grass Block Minecraft Cake
This design by Hmong Baker is a seven-inch cake square chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream frosting mixed with ganache. All the layers are evenly frosted with chocolate.
Once the cake has the desired shape, you can go ahead and do another crumb coat. Once the cake has the desired shape, you can go ahead and do another crumb coat.
Place it into the refrigerator for five minutes to chill, and then go to put another layer. The best part? The crust on the outside is made up of crushed up Oreos and Graham crackers!
4. Skeleton Minecraft Birthday Cake / Grass Block
If you wish to decorate the grass Minecraft cake, here is a good idea by LucandLucysCupcakes. It is two bakes of 8 inches, 3 layers each.
For this design, it’s a very good idea to have your cake nicely chilled. In general, if you work with chocolate ganache-covered cake, chilled always makes your life easier.
Making all of those little squares would drive me crazy, in case your cake is not 100% square, work your way from the top to the bottom. That way if you reach the bottom and decide that you only need a partial square then you could cut it down.
5. TNT Minecraft Cake
This cake looks awesome and very detailed! Another idea from Ann Reardon, she is an incredible artist.
The size of this Minecraft cake is a great idea if you want to throw a birthday party for your kids. It will serve 32 people if you give each person half a stick of dynamite. It is quite a big cake serving, kids will probably eat about a third of a stick.
You will need rice bubbles, milk chocolate, coconut, some liquid green food, cocoa, and icing sugar. To color it TNT, use red fondant over the top of the cake and then immediately press it to the cake around the top. Add a strip of white around the outside of the cake and then use your ruler to straighten it up.
This is a TNT cake to make your kids go wild!
6. Minecraft Bee Cake
Moving along, this is an incredible Minecraft bee cake idea that requires some technical crafting skills courtesy of the Sugar High Score Youtube channel. It is packed with wonderful and creative ideas for a Minecraft bee cake.
To craft a bee shape, you will need to use a 12-inch MDF board to hold the legs, you will also need two thin threaded rods and corresponding washers and nuts to hold up this bee.
To make it look like the bee is flying cover the board in blue fondant. Next bake three 10-inch square cakes, one is chocolate and two yellow colored vanilla.
Another great idea is to make the bee like it is about to sting, so instead of doing black in the eyes make them red instead.
7. Minecraft Pig Cake
This is really cool I love Minecraft and cakes! Here is a pig cake courtesy of Liz Marek from SugarGeekShow Youtube channel breaks down all the tips and tricks needed to pull off this Minecraft pig cake idea with amazing results.
8. Minecraft Birthday Cake Idea

She even got the 7 slices thing correct! And the best part? Natalie cuts it like you would cut a cake in Minecraft! That means huge horizontal slices.

9. Simple Minecraft Cake Idea
This idea will save you a lot of stress, with Tracy from Little Cherry Cake you won’t need to cut out so many squares!
Tracy shares a simple, yet incredible idea! She uses a sheet of plastic with squares printed on it. You just hold the plastic against the cake, using some brown sugar paste, squeeze the plastic, and cut the edges out. Then all you need to do is press it against the cake, brilliant stuff!See also: 17 Minecraft Skin Ideas to Give You Inspiration
