However, if you would like to make all the elements from scratch, this cake would still be fairly simple to create.

Kerri (the Holly Muffin blogger) takes you step-by-step through how she designed this cake. Although she focuses on the creeper design, you can use this same strategy on other Minecraft characters, such as an Enderman, using different shades of black and purple, instead of green and white. Or perhaps use shades of pink and create the Minecraft pig.
