Get a Fortnite cake!
How to make a Fortnite Birthday Cake
Before you jump in the car to go buy a Walmart Fortnite cake, we made a fun and simple recipe you can easily do at home for your child’s birthday. Here are the steps to follow to make a Fortnite Supply Drop cake:
- First, you will need to bake 2 simple thin squared cakes (you can make 3 to make your supply box bigger and taller).
- Once the 2 simple square cakes are baked, let them cool down and stack them on top of each other. You can put some icing or cream in between the cakes.
- Now, time for some icing! Ice the cake with colored fondant or buttercream, preferably with a blue color, since it’s the color of the supply drop in the game.
- Put some letters (it can be the name of your kid or something funny like the DROP letters) with cream fondant or buy pre-made cake letters. If you don’t have fondant you can make letters with cardboard in the worst-case scenario.
- To make the grass around the drop, you can use shredded coconut meat (the white portion of the coconut) and then use green edible colorant to make it green. Spread the shreddings around your cake, and voilà! You have beautiful grass for your supply drop item to lend on.
- Finally, attached a ribbon or a small string to a helium balloon (it should be yellow, but it can be any birthday balloon that you want) and fix the ribbon at the bottom of the cake.
Best Fortnite Cakes in 2021
Now that you know how to make the perfect Fortnite cake, here are our best ideas to see a surprise and happy face during your kid’s birthday:
Chocolate Fortnite Cake with Characters
One of the major features in the Fortnite world is by far the diversity of its character roster. Between Thanos from the Avengers saga, Peely the banana, Astro Jack inspired by Travis Scott, and even Ninja, the famous Twitch streamer, there are a lot of different characters to choose from in Fortnite. What’s your kid’s preferred character?
Once you know what character you are going to use, you can get a nice print of the latter that you will then attach to 2 wooden/plastic sticks (you can also use straws). Then, all you have to do is push down the 2 sticks in the cake.
Colorful Fortnite Cake of the map
Another important part of Fortnite is where most of the battles take place. The map is gigantic, and the different sections have many memorable pieces that you can incorporate into your cake. In order to do so, you can watch some YouTube videos or simply buy a pre-made Fortnite cake. You could also make a small Fortnite cupcake or dozens of them! The sky is the limit!

This cake is all about guns, swords, grenades, and bullets.

Moreover, all Fortnite Battle Royale Birthday cakes need the loot Llama or the #1 Victory Royale if you really want to make him/her feel special.
