Does your loved one know every type of potion, brick, mineral, and creature that exists in the Minecraft world? Well, then you may consider making their dreams come true with a Minecraft Gaming Party!
Having had the recent pleasure of throwing a Minecraft party gives me the opportunity to share what worked and what didn’t work so well. I’ll be adding a 1-3 tutorials at a time, since they can be lengthy. So check back frequently for follow-up posts.
Skewers of food can make party planning easy and visually appealing. Image courtesy of Pinterest via Martha McCall.
In order for party planners to have enough energy to stay awake for the fireworks, the execution of creating great foods should be simple, visually appealing, and of course, crowd-pleasing.
Here are a few quick and easy energy-saving recipe ideas:
Love the Skewers:
This can be skewers of meat and veggies for the grill, appetizers of fruit and cheese, or anything else that can be jabbed with a stick.They can be laid upon a tray, poked into a cabbage head that has been leveled by slicing a piece off the bottom, Styrofoam, or in tumblers or glasses. For more info on skewer recipes see 50 skewer recipes by The FoodNetwork.

Flag Cake (pictured right)
Bake a cake following package directions, top with either white frosting or whipped cream (the kind in the tub) and add berries (blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, etc.) to represent stars and stripes.
Buy 2 pound cakes and cut them into cubes. Place one layer of cubed cake on the bottom of a trifle bowl or clear plastic cups. Add a layer of whipped cream (the kind in a tub) and add a layer of berries. Repeat, alternating red or blue-colored berries.
