This is the last installation in the Minecraft Madness series. We’ve gone over an easy game to make, our gaming trailer rental, schedule and glitches, food presentation, DIY favors, and more. You’ll find many different printables on each of the posts within this series.

For part 5, we’ll go over the Minecraft cake, decorating ideas and other printable/idea links that were helpful.

The Cake

Made from a cookie cake recipe, it was topped with green frosting and chocolate bars broke into bricks for the eyes, nose/mouth.

Since so much effort was put into decorations, appetizers, and snacks, it was the perfect ending to an amazing spread of food.

Sometimes Simple does the Job

We’re all in to creating, or at least most of us that visit this page, but sometimes…doing something so simple does the job in a big way: It puts a smile on the faces we love. Here is a healthy snack that only takes minutes to create.

You’ll need:

Bananas (washed)
Grapes – green and red (washed)
Small Containers
A Knife
A Black Marker (non-toxic)

1) Fill containers with grapes of both colors, leaving enough room for the banana to stick in.
2) Cut the end tip of the banana long enough to hold a grape and mimic a mouth.
3) Use the marker to make dots for the eyes of the dolphin.
4) Place each banana into the container, pull apart his mouth and place a grape in it.

Option 2: For Those with more Time on their Hands

Looking at this idea, another one came to mind: Instead of using grapes for inside the container, make blue gelatin.This can be achieved by either making the blue gelatin in a large bowl and after it firms up, scooping up pieces( it will look like waves) into each container or just pouring the gelatin into each individual container(which could be more cumbersome in the refrigerator), but it will look like still waters.
Place the cleaned and prepared bananas (as in in directions above) into the gelatin and place an orange fish cracker in the mouth.You can also scatter a few crackers on top of the “water.” Enjoy!
