Tiered Minecraft cake

This absolutely amazing two-tiered cake by The Violet Cake Shop was created to match the elements of the Minecraft game. The bottom square layer was built to look like its entirety was built from small square blocks. Each fondant square was painstakingly cut out from a variety of green and brown shades and manually attached to the surfaces. The sword inserted through the top also retains the block design and provides an impressive centerpiece topper. The cake board is encompassed into the entire presentation, donning figures and characters from the game, and finished off with a personalized birthday wish.

Work on your color and design techniques for your Minecraft cake in the Bluprint course Modern Mosaic Cakes with Allison Kelleher, who demonstrates simple ways to create and piece patterns with a variety of painting methods.

Amazing cake!!! I recently made a similar one for my eldest son but it didn’t have the sword on top of it.
How did you made the sword? is it all fondant? did you make the complete sword or only the part which can be seen? It must be hard to keep it straight, musn’t it? Thanks and congratulations!!!
