If there’s a preteen boy who isn’t in love with Minecraft these days, I haven’t met him.
In case you don’t personally know any preteen boys, Minecraft is a game in which you build blocky things out of blocks and get attacked by blocky-looking Creepers, which are very similar to these Creeper cupcakes by Momma D and Da Boyz, except I’m assuming the cupcakes don’t explode. If you need more information, feel free to consult my 11-year-old, who will be happy to discuss it with you in detail for eighty thousand hours or more.
Reader Allison knows what I’m talking about – her son loves Minecraft, too, and as luck would have it, she found these cupcakes on Pinterest just in time for his birthday. How perfect!
Okay, “perfect” might not be the word I’m looking for. Normally we console people about their food fails by reminding them they can eat the evidence, but Allison says the kids wouldn’t even touch the cake! Rejecting their beloved Minecraft AND free cake? Oh kids, that’s cold.
For more funny find Robyn at Hollow Tree Ventures, where you can’t always assume her attempts at cooking won’t explode.
