How Do I Make This Minecraft Cake

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Can someone help me with how to make this cake? The edges are so flush. I've seen examples where a piece of white fondant is laid on top but then the edges are not flush. You can see the layer of fondant on top.

 

Thanks!

It's just a square cake covered in fondant, then the other pieces are stuck on top.

And it's not flush, it is just thin fondant.

Anyone have any idea how to get the white notches on the side if your using crusting buttercream instead of fondant, don't like the taste. I know if wont be that smooth and clean.

What white notches are you referring to? You can get it that smooth. Just use the viva method. I do viva and then Melvira's.

I say notches, I mean the squares on the sides that meet the chocolate fondant.  I thought about using the Viva method but wasn't sure how it would look where the white buttercream would meet the chocolate buttercream.  Would they smear into each other some when smoothed?

You will always face some sort of difficulty when you try and replicate something using a different medium.

I think a lot of this ..... fondant tastes yuck - is like a cult (where you believe something because of the minute experience you may have had).   Thick fondant made with horrible ingredients or a cheapo one out of a bucket may very well taste yuck.   But ALL fondant isn't yuck.

It can be rolled really thin and to do this cake with rolled fondant accent over buttercream would be a cinch

You can do the white and smooth it out, then pipe the black on top of it. If you use the viva on that part, it won't have the crisp lines the fondant has.

Agreed! Everyone here automatically jumps to...ewww. I don't want that fondant stuff. I have done sample cupcakes with them on it to show them that mine doesn't taste as bad as whatever they ate before!!
