Minecraft Cupcakes "Creeper"

UPDATE!!

Here is my How to video:


Icing:
White icing or cream cheese icing
Add a drop of green food dye and mix
Continue to add dye until nice and green.

Coating Cake:
Apply your first crumb coat of green icing. Refrigerate up to 30 min or until the coat is firm
Repeat this two more times equaling 3 coatings of icing.
Apply our final coating of icing as evenly as possible to have a 1/4 inch thickness
Refrigerate your iced cake again

Cut:
With the cake COLD. Cut off the edges of the cake to make sharp corners
NOTE: Clean your blade after each cut. 
Using a knife and a ruler. Measure out and cut 2 inch Column. Pull column from the cake.
Cut Column into 2" squares.
Separate each square and refrigerate. Always keep your cake cold.
NOTE: Don't slice the cake into squares a once. Each square must be cut and separated one at a time to insure shape.
Download and print Pixel template. Cut out the black area.
Decorate:
Print and cut out a pixel template on a card
Tip: Use tin foil to keep the card template from getting too soaked in dye.
Hold your pixel template over one square cake and lightly spray a mist on top using green 'color mist'
When the mist settles. turn your template 90 degrees and spray a light mist again.
This will give your pixels two shades.
NOTE: Keeping cake cold will make sure the frosting is stiff and won't stick to the stencil.
Face:
Using a template place it over the fruit leather and cut out Creeper eyes and mouth
Place them on pixel sprayed square cupcakes

  9. I borrowed your amazing cakes idea for my daughter's birthday Minecraft LAN party yesterday and they were a big hit. We used a black sugar sheet rather than fruit leather and had green dyed/white cake in addition to chocolate. Thanks so much for putting this up.

  22. Hello! I am making these cupcakes tomorrow and I have two questions. #1- Did you make cupcakes and then cut the straight edges?Or did you make a sheet cake and then cut into 2 inch squares? #2- How close do you have to hold the template to the cakes to create the pixels? I assume you don't put the template directly on the cake or the frosting will smudge. Thanks in advance!

    1. SO Sorry for this late reply. I'm sure you must have figured it out. Best to directly message me through my contact link. You are right on both. I did make a sheet cake and cut 2 inch squares. I don't put the template directly on the cake frosting. I hover it over each square. I used a shallow Tupperware to hold up my template. I put the square in the tupperware and placed the template over the top. It helped.

  23. Maria Straight I am making these and wonder how you did the template?

    1. Sorry for the late reply. I did a google image search for Creeper and printed it out on card stock paper to the size i wanted. I then cut out pixels at random and then wrapped it in tin foil to keep it from getting wet from the color mist.
