Yesterday was Bubba's tenth birthday. To celebrate the occasion, I baked him a cake. A Minecraft cake, since the boy is totally obsessed with the game.
I wasn't quite sure how to do it, but I figured it would have to have to be squarish in shape, have square pixels thingies, and have many layers that look like they had been crafted. I put on my thinking cap and baked a couple of cakes. I cut them up into smaller squares and made some layers. Then I cut up chocolate candy pieces, fashioning them into square pixel looking thingies. When I was finished, I showed my masterpiece to my son. "What do you think?"
He looked at it and scratched his head. "What is it?"
"Isn't it obvious?" I asked. "It's a mountain biome from Minecraft."
He nodded slowly. "Yeah. It kind of looks like that. But I think it looks more like a mushroom biome. You need to add some grass."
I took the kid's advice and made some green grass with the frosting. I slopped it on at the base of the mountain.
"There. Is that better?" I asked.
"Yeah. But it still looks like an epic disaster. Here. Let me fix it." The kid grabbed some sugar numbers and applied them to the cake: 9 1 1. "It's an emergency situation. It's calling for help."
I scowled at the kid. "Fine. I'll go get help." I went down into the basement and found a Lego Princess Leah. I brought her upstairs and placed her on the cake. "There. Now it's fixed!"
(Unfortunately, Bubba did not agree. He named my creation, "The Ugliest Cake in the World." But it sure was good!)
Here it is:
