Easy Fortnite Cake
I made this Fortnite supply drop cake (pictured below) for my son’s birthday party. This cake was truly simple to make. You don’t have to be an expert cake decorator to create something fun and on-theme. The birthday boy and the party guests absolutely loved this DIY Fortnite cake.
To make this Fortnite Supply Drop cake:
- Bake two cakes in a square tin. Test them with a wooden pick to make sure they are cooked properly.
- Let them cool on wire racks, then stack them on top of each other to make more of a box shape.
- Ice your cake with colored fondant or a thin layer of buttercream or royal icing.
- Create some stencil letters for the DROP. You could do this with fondant or even cardboard. Or use an alphabet cookie cutter set or a sharp knife.
- Add green food coloring to desiccated coconut for the grass. (Optional).
- Tie some ribbon or string to a yellow helium balloon and attach it to the bottom of your cake.
Another simple way to create a cake quickly that looks fantastic is to use a themed cake topper.

Then make lots of buttercream icing you can color to match the burger’s detail. You’d need white, yellow, light green, dark green, red and black icing. You could just make one big batch and split it into separate bowls to make the different colors. And the pink tongue could be made with pink fondant.
Chug Jug Cake
This chug jug cake would be great to make with your favorite vanilla or butter cream cake recipe or cake mix. You would need to make at least 4 round cakes and stack them to create this look.

Fortnite Marshmallow Cake
The DJ Marshmallow cake is possibly one of the easiest cakes to make in this range and there are a few different ways to make it. If you want a smooth finish like the photo below, then a white fondant would be best. You could cover the cake board in white fondant too or just present it on a white plate.
If you don’t have a really deep cake tin to make a round cake this size, just bake two flatter round cakes and stack them.
For the black eyes and mouth, you could either make that with black fondant or even black cardboard.
I’ve also seen this cake made with white buttercream and it looks just as great if you smooth it over as much as possible.
