The main reason kids love Minecraft cakes is because they’re a delicious way to celebrate their favorite game. Chocolate cake with green frosting may not sound appetizing to adults, but for kids, it’s the perfect way to enjoy their birthday and their favorite game at the same time!
These birthday cakes are great for a cool Minecraft birthday party or just a special family celebration at home.
Here are some easy ideas for making a Minecraft themed cake that your child will love.
How to Make a Minecraft Cake
1. Use a store-bought (chocolate or vanilla) cake mix and decorate it with green, blue, and brown icing / frosting to resemble the grass, water, and dirt blocks found in Minecraft.
2. Make a simple chocolate cake and top it with green fondant to look like a Minecraft emerald block.
3. Make a Minecraft grass block cake with a square cake, green icing and optional green shredded coconut for grass.
4. Get creative with your decorating and make a Minecraft creeper or Enderman face out of fondant or frosting / icing.
5. Use toy Minecraft characters to decorate the top of your cake. This is a great option if you’re not confident in your cake decorating skills.
6. For a more challenging option, try making a 3D Minecraft block out of cake. This is sure to impress and delight your child.
7. Add Minecraft Sprinkle Mix to any iced cupcakes or cake for a quick and easy cake hack. Simply ice your cake then sprinkle and you’re done.

Easy Minecraft Cake
Read on to see some amazingly easy and fun homemade Minecraft cake ideas to create that the kids will adore.
You can either bake your own cakes or buy some store-bought cakes ready to ice. The first cakes featured in this article do not use fondant…you can use whatever frosting you are most comfortable working with.
Minecraft Lego Cake
A Minecraft Lego cake is a great cake-hack where you can make a fun-looking cake super fast. To make this cake, you will need:
- Minecraft Lego – See a huge variety right here.
- 2 square cakes (chocolate or vanilla)
- Green buttercream frosting. Make your own or use Betty Crocker and color with green food coloring
- Chocolate buttercream frosting
- LCM bars or any rectangular rice crispy treat
- Blue Jello / Jelly
Place the Lego set on top of the first square cake. You don’t have to ice underneath the Lego set…just make sure that the cake is flat so that the Lego sits properly on it. You can cut the top of the cake down a bit so that it is flatter.
Use chocolate frosting for the dirt area and green frosting for the grass. I cut the second cake in half as I didn’t need it all…but it is up to you. Use as much as you please. Cut the LCM bars into square block and add some blue jello in the middle for water.
The exact Rabbit Ranch Lego set I used on this cake can be found right here.
Here is another version of a Minecraft Lego cake. This one used raw sugar as sand as well as chocolate cake with green icing and blue jello.
As you can see, the cake doesn’t need to be perfect…you just need to have fun making it and they will love it.
