From Sunny by Design via Spaceships and Laser Beams

Everyone equates the Creeper with Minecraft! What better choice for a Minecraft birthday party than a Creeper cake?

This Minecraft Creeper cake even features the well-known pixelated look. Squares of fondant are pieced together on a square cake and definitely achieve the classic Creeper face look.

This pig and watermelon Minecraft-themed birthday cake will thrill any game-lover.

2. From I’m Topsy Turvy: Pig and Watermelon

Unless you love decorating cakes and are quite talented at cake construction and design, leave this Minecraft cake for an expert.

Making the Minecraft pig and watermelon is definitely a very detailed and complicated process that requires many steps, carving the cake, building the levels, adding ganache, piecing fondant, and even using edible spray paint.

The result is phenomenal.

This Minecraft-themed dynamite cake is genuinely explosive!

3. From A Fresh Take Photography via Hostess With the Mostess: TNT

A red and black square TNT cake that used a sparkler instead of a candle must have been a good dose of excitement for the birthday boy. It’s the perfect choice for a Minecraft birthday party. The fondant details are impressive.

This Minecraft-themed cake is decorated with marshmallow and a model.

4. From Party Inspirations via Spaceships and Laser Beams: Round Layers

This carrot cake is a fun take on a Minecraft birthday cake! It features two varying light green shades of buttercream “bots” to give a pixelated feel. Doesn’t it look delicious? Steve is nearby on guard duty.

Everything about this Minecraft birthday party is amazing. We love that dynamite cake.

5. From Fernanda Frazao via Kara’s Party Ideas: 3 Layers

Guests at your Minecraft birthday party will go crazy over this triple layer cake! It features three different layers in shades of red, yellow, and green that pay tribute to different elements of the Minecraft game.

Instantly guests will recognize the TNT top layer and the Creeper inspired bottom layer. The pixelated look to the fondant is a really awesome detail.

7. From Daveyva via Catch My Party: Square 

When it comes to designing a Minecraft birthday cake, think square! This large square cake is a great example.

A chocolate brown cake is mostly exposed (looks like dirt), but a layer of green frosting grass covers the top to resemble the game. Fondant figurines of Steve, the Creeper, a pig, and TNT embellish the top of the Minecraft cake.

These Minecraft cake squares are perfect for the cube lover in your life.

8. From Partylicious via Spaceships and Laser Beams: Individual Squares

With the square, pixelated details playing such a role in the Minecraft world, this Minecraft birthday cake idea is brilliant!

Instead of the typical round cupcakes, why not serve square-shaped, mini personal chocolate cakes topped in green fondant with a variety of bot patterns? No cake cutting during the party is required!

This unusual Minecraft birthday cake is incredibly detailed.

9. From Cakes by Leesin: Game Cake

Would you believe that this square Minecraft game cake and coordinating square cupcakes are constructed of 1850 squares held together with syrup? Impressive…and time consuming. The finished look is pretty cool.

Have you ever had a square cupcake before? What a clever touch for a Minecraft birthday!

This Minecraft rice-crispie treat cake makes excellent use of the shape of these delicious treats.

10. From Deborah M. via Catch My Party: Mini Squares

Now here’s a creative take on a Minecraft cake! Make up a batch of green Rice Krispies squares, forming them into a Creeper cake, complete with black tinted details. Kids can take a mini square as their serving of “cake”.

This amazingly detailed Minecraft cake is great.

11. From Supermum Cakes via Spaceships and Laser Beams: Brine

Transform a rectangular sheet cake into a Minecraft birthday cake by covering it in green frosting “grass”. Use Minecraft Legos to dress it up. Don’t Lego Steve and the Lego Creeper look cool?

(Just a fun side note—the planners of this party hid foam blocks around the yard. Kids had to find a certain combo before they could get their cake – fun!)

This dessert table incorporates framed Minecraft-inspired pictures!

14. From Gemma T. via Catch My Party: Cake Tower

Sometimes simple is the only way to go when it comes to cake! While many Minecraft cakes feature squares of fondant, this cake does not.

17. From Orsi Crawford: Original
