Minecraft Cube Cake with Decorator's Buttercream

Yum

This wicked ambitious Minecraft cake was made topped with a fabulous buttercream recipe that you can find below!


This cake was a labor of love made for my oldest's birthday last year. He is obsessed with Minecraft and I saw a video on Youtube and thought I would be very ambitious and I'm so glad I was. It turned out very well despite a few hiccups. I'm pretty proud of how it turned out and Matthew loved it. I was a little worried he would be irritated that I put toys on his cake again (I put his Cars on a cake once and he lost his mind...maybe 3 or 4 years old?), but he didn't seem to mind this time. The coolest part was definitely cutting into it and seeing more cubes (check out the pics below!).


Today I am sharing the recipe for the buttercream frosting I used on the cake. If you want to see how the cake is made, I am leaving that to the expert! Here is the link to how to make Minecraft Cube Cake video

What you need:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 6 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 tsp. meringue powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
Directions:
  1. Cream together butter and shortening on medium high speed until combined and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add lemon juice and salt on low speed. 
  3. Then start adding sugar, one cup at a time. Then add meringue powder.
  4. Add milk and beat on slow until combined and then on medium high until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. If your frosting is still dry, add 1 Tbsp. milk at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
