Free Pattern: Minecraft Cake

Yum yum, cake!
Make now your own minecraft goodie.
No need to strengthen the sides to obtain& maintain cubic form as this pattern is using 2 rectangles to make the cube instead of working in the round.
In the rectangles 'hinges' are created by working one row in the front or back loops only. By working in the front row, the hinge will be towards you. The back row will be the opposite.
Cake  (14x14x8)
Made from 2 rectangles with hinges (see also my minecraft creeper pattern)

rectangle A
start with brown
0           chain 15
1-4       14sc, ch1, turn (4 times in total)
5           keep the yarn on facing side: when turning to brown leave long tail for sewing
             (turn to white, 2sc, turn to brown, 2sc) 3 times, turn to white, 2sc
6-8        14sc, ch1, turn (3 times in total)
9           14sc in front loops only, ch1, turn

Cake embroidery
Embroider the cake like the picture below. You could also crochet the spots, but I chose embroidery.
Sew A&B together to form a cube, stuff. See schematic for help.


Make sure the 'hinges' as explained above are in the correct way.
This means that if you lay down the 2 rectangles, the unused front/back loops should be in the back (you are not facing them). Also the embroided side is facing down.


Begin at the red star sewing with white and follow the sides, switching to brown and back to white again.  Attach a white strand where indicated to continue closing the cube. Stuff but don't overstuff.

You are free to use this pattern to make as many cakes as you like for personal use/gifts. Please do not post this pattern anywhere else.

  2. Thank you for sharing this! I plan to start it today for a friend's birthday gift on the 17th. (I'm getting her a Minecraft subscription and this will be a great way to give it to her.)
