I bought myself a Nintendo for Christmas. Guess what game I wanted to play first? Minecraft! Well, that’s a lie. It was vintage Super Mario, but that doesn’t go with this cake. Guess what game I wanted to play second? Minecraft!
Once, many moons ago, I made a grass block Minecraft cake, and that took such a ridiculous amount of time, that I decided I would never do it again. So when I thought about making another Minecraft cake, I chose to make this cake out of mini cake blocks instead of one big giant one. Both giant block cakes, and Minecraft landscape cakes have been created in wonderful ways already all over the internet. So my problem was how was I going to produce a fresh cake idea when I was late to the party? I decided (with Paul’s expert advice . . aka his idea) to go with a background/backdrop of the cake being an un-mined, yet to be explored area that Minecraft Steve is working on, and in front of him, an area of land where he has already been, therefore exposing the various different block types.
Marshmallows and buttercream together? So yum!
This recipe comes about as a lead up to a fabulous cake . . . this recipe, plus the one for marshmallow fluff together equal a fabulous SURPRISE inside cake. We will have the great, fabulous, so adorable, wonderful cake ready to be released on Saturday morning. Here’s a hint: there are marshmallows involved.
I think that this icing would be delicious on a S’mores cupcake (which I’m definitely going to make now that I’ve thought of it!) You could scorch the top of and make it TOASTED marshmallow buttercream! Oh my god, I’m dying!
There is definitely a lot of butter in this recipe, which obviously means it’s going to taste great and be horrible for your waistline, but it makes a smooth and creamy buttercream.
I must know . . . how would YOU use this buttercream?
