I was not super happy with how this cake turned out, but my son really liked it, and that is what counts. This was for his Minecraft birthday party. I had a difficult time cutting the cake into a perfect square. That seems to be a continuining problem of mine. After a thin layer of icing, I applied brown fondant over the entire thing. We then cut out the squares of various colors of fondant and stuck them on the fondant underneath. I have noticed the Cake Boss uses a steamer to get rid of all the cornstarch that is showing, but since I did not have that, we brushed it lightly with water. It did leave water drippy marks on it though, so I might look at getting a steamer sometime in the future.

My son wants a Minecraft cake for his birthday too!  I have never worked with fondant though so I am not sure what I am going to be able to come up with!

Whenever I make cakes with fondant I use the regular iron on steam setting from a ways away. If you practice on a spare piece until you figure it out, it works pretty good for spiffying it up Smiley

This is fantastic!! I'm sure that he was thrilled, you did a good job. My boys (6 and 13) are way into that game as well.

Thanks for the tip. I had wondered about this in the past, but it always seems I only make cakes for the kids' birthdays, and then I am terrified to completely botch it up. I really should make more practice cakes to try things like this out on.
