He is 8 years old now, a Minecraft fondant cake


Earlier i thought my son Desmond wanted an Angry Birds's Birthday cake for his birthday this year because he is a big fan of AB..I was re-confirmed with him again on last two weeks, he said he wants a Minecraft cake now but not AB...That was my 1st time heard of Minecraft, then he shown it to me, then i realized that Minecraft is a game about placing blocks to build anything you can imagine..Last two days i was busy preparing his Birthday fondant cake, luckily this cake is not that difficulut to make since all are involved with blocks..


My little Desmond when 1 year old


Today he is turning to 8, wearing spec now..

I started to prepare Minecraft fondant blocks and figurine one day ahead..due to hot weather, some of the blocks stick together and i need to re-do on the next day, waste of my time! So it is important to make fondant in an air-cond room..

For the cake, i bake a 8" sour cream chocolate cake but somehow i under bake the cake and the cake was uncooked. I tried to bake again and the cake turned very dry (I realized that using a square cake pan need longer time to bake instead a round cake pan, i need to take note on this ). I quickly made another 8" butter cake. So i use both cakes to stack and become 7"x7" block and use basic buttercream (recipe as per below) to spread the whole block before i paste the fondant blocks..

This Minecraft fondant cake can be consider as my 1st fondant Birthday cake!!
Desmond requested for these figurine, Steve (the boy in blue), TNT box (actually is a bom), Diamond Ore and Gold Ore,,I started to know better Minecraft now, hahaha..

They also have a supermarket called Urbanfresh, so i don't need to travel to One U or Empire Subang to shop special ingredients anymore..

Happy belated birthday to Desmond!Look at his smiley face, he was very happy with mummy's cake! Tell you secretly, I won't ask my children what cakes do they want for their birthday because I only know to make cheesecake, hahaha but luckily Ethan loves cheesecake!
