If you have kids between the ages of 6 and 12, you may already know that Minecraft is a huge hit with this age group. When my son asked me to make him a "dirt block" cake for his 10th birthday, I have to say I was a little intimidated. My boys had tried to show me the "worlds" they made in this game before, and to be honest, I had no idea what I was looking at! With a little help from my kids and a lot of internet inspiration, I think we ended up pulling off a pretty successful party. Cake is vanilla with white chocolate ganache oreo filling. The cake has right around 500 blocks that make up the dirt block pixels. Pixels and characters are made of fondant.
