Epic Minecraft Cake Village

minecraft cake tutorial reardon


Epic Minecraft cake village with no fondant, just frosting, chocolate and sprinkles… yummmm!  Lets face it you are either a minecraft fan or you know one. This is a really fun cake to make.  If you’re short on time just make the building blocks and in the true spirit of minecraft let the guests build their own cake.

To make this epic minecraft cake you will need:

(serves 45)
The template for the cake and building the houses


cake board (mine was 50cm (19.69 inches) x 45cm (17.72 inches) but you can customize this cake and make it as big or small as you like)
1.3kg (2.87 pounds) milk chocolate
100g (3.53 ounces) dark chocolate
1.5kg (3.31 pounds) white chocolate
green sprinkles
cake pop sticks x the number of trees you want
food grade marker black
oil based food colouring (blue, green, red, black)
gold luster dust (optional)
silicone mini ice cube tray (the one I have makes 90 per tray)

1 ½ quantities of my chocolate cake recipe baked into three trays 38cm (14.96 inches) x 25cm (9.84 inches)
2 quantities of my chocolate buttercream frosting whipped with cooled ganache made from 200g (7.05 ounces) milk chocolate and 70millilitres (2.37 fluid ounces) or 1/4 cup cream (35% fat)

  1. hi Ann! I have seen the other minecraft cake on your youtube channel and this one also. I wonder how you work so patiently with 3 boys…I cant even dare to make a simple sponge cake with my 2 boys…lol…you need a patience award for this epic lovely creation….you are an inspiration to me and a lot many other viewers of yours….pleassseeeeeeeeee make a behind the screen video plzzzzzzzzz….love and hugs from UAE

    • Hi Maaida, Thanks for the fun suggestion and the feedback. Ann is amazing!

  2. Your videos really inspired me to make cakes for my family members and I’m only a kid. They are really proud of me because when I grow up I want to have my own bakery.

    • That’s awesome Angelique. Keep baking!

  3. why are the templates not free?

    • Hey Arthur, I’m assuming because she does the videos using her time and posts them for free and it more than likely takes her a while to work out a template that can be printable- I’ve never attempted to make one myself but they don’t look simple. She’s gotta make a buck too, or she might not be able to keep doing her videos for free 🙂

  4. can you make a rubik’s cube cake for father’s day

    • Thanks for the suggestion!

  5. Hi me and my BFFJoey want a teraria cake thank u Ann

  6. hi Ann its Julia again and i was wonderin gif you could make a sugar free cake and frosting recipe. Im not even a teen baker with diabetes. Its been a struggle not eating the cake and sweets I love and make. My family loive my creations and i love them too but what would be better if i coukd eat much more of it. If you could make anything sugar free would be great. Even if you made a sugar free five nights at freddys cake pizza for me that would be great. 🙂

  7. Hi Ann. That cake is amazing. Could you do a five nights at freddys cake and use the app to make the characters appear? I think a lot of people would enjoy seeing that. If you do make the cake make something like chickas cupcakes or a freddy fazbear pizza. The game is very fun, and gets your adrenilyne running. Thanks for all of the inspration!

  8. hey you are very good I wish you could make me a cake

  13. Hey Ann, thank you again for great video. I would like to make it, but in my country they don´t sell that ice cube tray. Is there maybe different way to make those cute chocolate cubes? Thank you for your time. Have a nice day 🙂

  14. Can you do a frosting taste test? Can you also make a snoopy cake. I am a fan for Snoopy, and a fan for you. 🙂

  15. I love these videos your making! 🙂 But I have a question is there cake underneath? And also could you possibly make a zebra cake?!?!?!

    • Hi Shirley, Ann often gives away her creations to local people or groups. Some of course get eaten at home!

  19. Hey ann, could you do a dessert challenge (with another ytber?) ? Maybe the community could choose the topic. I think it would really nice to watch and i’m sure you’d make a great dessert.
