I made all the elements of the cake the night before the party. The base layer of the cake is blue Jell-O. I made it according to their Jigglers recipe (mix packet with 2 1/2 Cups boiling hot water, place in pan - or in this case casserole baker - in fridge to set).
Separately, I made the Rice Krispie Squares and the Chocolate cake. The day of the party I put everything together. It came together quickly.
1. Slide a knife through the Jell-O to cut into squares - everything about Minecraft is block-y. The Jell-O is the water.
2. Cut the cake into same size squares - my cake cut into 16 good sized cake pieces.
3. Frost each square of the cake with green frosting as you place it out. I placed the cake pieces right on top of the Jell-O. The cake is the land. Some of the pieces of cake layers on top of each other to give it that building look of Minecraft.
4. Cut the Rice Krispie Squares into the same size as the Jell-O and Cake squares. Lay those down as the sand of the beach.
5. We added to the look of the cake with 2 Minecraft figures (Steve and a Creeper) and their accessories. Some people who have done a similar cake did use foldable downloads to make their figures with. The figures were part of our son's birthday present from us.
