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.
