Minecraft TNT Birthday Cake
This weekend, I've made this birthday cake for a friend who is a big fan of Minecraft Computer Game. The cake is rather simple it's made of 2 layers of chocolate sponge cake with a generous amount of buttercream in between. 
The trickiest part of the project is to make sugar paste completely flat with sharp edges. If you wish to find out how to do this please do let me know and drop me a quick message.
