Oh, hi! Did your kid sucker you into a Minecraft party, too? And did you blindly offer to make that same kid Minecraft cake pops for his birthday?? No? Just me? Well, then. Okey dokey.

This is not so much a 'how-to' post as a 'it can be done' post on Minecraft cake pops. Check this out, and other amazing cake pop ideas, at http://sevenlittlemonkeys.com
The iconic Minecraft blocks made into cake pops.

I thought, How hard could it be? They’re squares. With the most basic of facial features. Well, it took me 12 hours — and I’m only talking the dipping; the cake was already molded at this point– TWELVE HOURS to dip and fully finish 40 cake pops. FORTY.

These Minecraft TNT cake pops are dynamite!

If you take into account the time it took to bake, mold, prep and clean up, I spent at least 16 hours in the kitchen to churn out 40 of these bad boys. So, on average EACH cake pop took 24 minutes to make which, if you do the math, is not cost-efficient.

This is Steve. Steve is the Minecraft dude. And now he’s a cake pop.

And you wouldn’t think they’d take that long. I mean, the TNT is just red with a band of white. And yet… Then you have Critical Eldest Daughter asking, “Are you gonna draw lines for the individual TNT sticks?” What?? It’s not enough I made the fuse on top? This is what I have to deal with, folks.

Why, yes, there are pigs in Minecraft. It’s a pretty diverse world.

Obviously I did these out of *cough* love and you can’t put a price on love. (Also THIS is why having a cake business is so hard; you can never fully charge your worth.) And while I didn’t need to make so many, I had a pending order for some so I wanted to be prepared. Plus, go big or go home.

Dirt blocks never looked so good.

I actually am a little bit in love with this set of cake pops. My ankles and back, however, were severely unprepared for the cake pop marathon. If you’re going to undertake this project, be forewarned that it will take time. It’s all in the details. You must have patience, Grasshopper. And comfortable shoes. When all else fails, you could just stick with the standard Creeper.

    • Hi, Leilani. With melted chocolate and a food-safe paint brush I painted it on. It’s a fine line between too-melty (drip factor) and too thick (clump factor). 🙂
