The cheat’s birthday cake

Minecraft Cake

I am not a baker…but I do love cake!

I wish I could be one of those creatives mum’s that have the skills (and the energy) to start baking into the evening to produce a beautiful show piece to present the next morning for the school cake sale or the children’s birthday party – however I have accepted that this is never going to happen. The last time I baked a cake…a long time ago…it somehow exploded in the oven…really baking just isn’t my thing.

So for our last two birthday parties I found the perfect solution! There is a company called JN Cakes which I found on eBay. They make the most amazing edible cake toppers, producing all of the relevant characters that your child might be in to. From superheroes to video game characters. I have tried the Batman Movie figures and more lately the Minecraft figures.

If you are like me and actually are incapable of actually producing a normal sponge cake there is also a company that makes delicious sponge cakes that they will deliver for free the very next day. You can find their cakes at You can go for just a plain iced sponge, like I did, and add your toppers and really produce a creation at a proportion of the cost of a bespoke cake. And my kids loved them!!

Good luck with your cake making 😉
