Birthday Cake Bonanza – Super Mario Edition

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.  =)

  1. Wow. The cake has become very beautiful.
    Especially sweet are the little flowers, and stars, and of course Mario.
