If you’ve played the game Five Nights at Freddy’s, you’ll know that it takes place in a pizza parlor after hours. It’s dark in there, and it’s scary! It’s so scary that the first time I played it on my iPad, the iPad ended up being thrown across the room- from fright! I don’t recommend being as much of a chicken as I am when playing horror video games. ”If you’re a chicken, why are you playing horror video games Jenn?” For research people, for research!!
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.
