Awesome cake request from a friend for her nephew’s birthday which happens to be today. The request – a Nintendo inspired cake. Super Mario is synonymous with Nintendo and it only made perfect sense that this little boy’s cake be Super Mario themed.
I spent a good part of last weekend making all the Super Mario embellishments – stars, mushrooms, power flowers and of course, Mario.
All fondant. Something I am new to, but am shockingly learning to enjoy working with now. It is quite relaxing and forces me to slow down and focus. I can be known to have many “squirrel” moments. Making these characters required patience on my part.
The cake request was for chocolate cake with electric blue as the main colour. I created a tiered cake with the bottom layer covered in a great blue fondant and blue buttercream for the other 2 tiers.
This cake is full of colour and screams fun. I certainly had fun making it. I hope this little boy loves this cake as much as I loved making it. =)
