After wanting to cook something special for her niece’s sixth birthday, an aunt offers a spider-inspired cake from Minecraft.
Minecraft celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Since the game’s release, the developers of Mojang have continued to add many new monsters to the procedurally generated world, such as ghosts and iron golems. However, perhaps one of the most recognizable creatures in Minecraft is also one of its oldest: the spider. Recently, an aunt decided to reimagine the hostile crowd as an edible treat.
In a post on Reddit, a user known as MrsVoussy shared a few photos of a cake she made. According to the baker, the cake was designed to resemble a spider from Minecraft. She got the idea after her niece wanted a spider-themed cake for her sixth birthday. From the images, the cake shared a striking resemblance to the game’s eight-legged arachnid.
The artist used black icing to replicate the creature’s black tones. One of the highlights of the design was the inclusion of the red eyes and mouth. These features were part of the iconic look of the spiders found in the open world of Minecraft because those red, shiny components of the design were often the first thing players noticed when approaching these dangerous creatures in the dark.
In addition to showing off some pictures of the spider cake, Ms Voussy gave fans some details on the process of making the delicious treat. According to the baker, she made the head and middle parts of the spider with a chocolate cake. She then used a white cake with a lime green coloring for the back part. To complete the design, she fashioned Rice Krispie treats for the eight legs and added a layer of chocolate frosting on top. Additionally, she said she used Google images to help her craft the design.
This spider cake baked by Mme Voussy made a strong impression with the Minecraft community on Reddit. With a staggering 11,4000 upvotes in less than a day, the consensus among gamers was that Aunt’s Cake bore a remarkable resemblance to the spider’s spider. Minecraft. Many were stunned to hear that Ms Voussy claimed that she was neither a baker nor a gamer, as they believed the creation looked like something made by an experienced baker. Additionally, some users have wondered why her niece would want a spider birthday cake. Mme Voussy replied: “I have learned not to question the strangeness of 6-year-olds.”
Beyond this creative birthday cake, many other players have made some ingenious creations in the world of Minecraft. Recently a player decided to build a volcano in Minecraft in the game that could launch lava into the air. With so many biomes, monsters and items in Minecraft, it seems these fan creations are just the tip of the creative iceberg. It will be interesting to see what kind of creations people, like MrsVoussy, decide to come up with in the future.
