More Mario, Luigi, and Yellow Toad

Posted by Jennifer at 2:52 PM
After Mitchell's birthday, came his brother, Maddox's birthday. Maddox wanted a Mario Kart themed birthday cake and again, I ensured Hellen that I had done plenty of research on this topic as well. Like I said in my last post, my brothers and I used to stay up late after my parents had gone to sleep playing Mario Kart. Maddox wanted the infamous Rainbow Level for his cake and I was up for the challenge. Hellen also said that Maddox wanted Luigi and Yellow Toad on the cake so now I was really in for some work! The chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream was covered in homemade marshmallow fondant and the characters were made out of fondant as well. Although it was a challenge, this cake was SO MUCH FUN to make. Making 3-D characters takes a lot of time and effort especially because these characters are so recognizable. I knew I had to get them right or else my brothers wouldn't let me hear the end of it.

This second picture is of the matching Mario cupcakes that went with the last Mario cake. I modeled these off of a set of cupcakes I saw online that I love! I've had that picture in my set of research cakes for years now and so I was so happy to hear that Hellen saw the same set and wanted the same cupcakes. Yay! They are chocolate cupcakes topped with buttercream and marshmallow fondant toppers. I hope my brothers are proud!
