Minecraft Cake

Minecraft cake for Xander, turning 8 years old. Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream, and chocolate ganache (for sharper corners). Each tile was placed on by hand one at a time, on the cake itself. Didn't see the point in doing the transfer method shown in some tutorials, since you have to lay each square and then hope none fall off and hope that they completely cover the side perfectly. Felt too risky. And going one by one right onto the cake gave me control to trim edges of the precut squares as needed. I cut all the squares over several days, so by the time I was sticking them on, it wasn't as nightmarish as you'd think. I just put on the TV and got to work, and did 3 sides per sitting. Top was the hardest part, as noted in the photo from above.
