Jello in a bread pan lined with Saran Wrap, one recipe of chocolate cake divided in two cookie sheet pans and double recipe of Rice Krispies

I prepared the jello using only one cup of hot water per recipe... So 4 packets of blue jello and 4 cups of boiling water

I searched "minecraft 3D figurines" and then printed off the characters I wanted to use

A hot glue gun was used to make the figurines. The pig turned out so great!

There are plenty of figurines online, you just have to find the ones you like. I also used a thicker paper, much more sturdy and can handle the hot glue gun better
