Every year I try to make my son an awesome cake for his birthday.
This birthday, for months and months, the little man and I have been researching and working out exactly what this next cake will be. This year, I’ve been watching Cake Boss and Ace of Cakes. So this year, I wanted to raise the bar a little….
Here’s the during…. I hand sculpted every piece on top of this cake. Toothpicks and wooden skewers are awesome for little cake bits like the mushrooms…. Can you tell, it’s a Super Mario themed cake?
Just to prove I made the characters… there was Luigi during the making…
Goombas and mushrooms and stars and piranha plants
I started preparing this cake 4 days ago. It all went well… until yesterday when I was drying out some things in the sun, and we had a sudden storm, that ruined a tray of goodies….
Not to worry, I made some more.
And… voila. I’ll stop chatting and just show you photos now. I’m pretty happy with it!
Oh and before any of my friends think I’m happy to do this for their kids…. think again! Ha! 12-14 hours later…. $80 for ingredients and tools…. not a chance I’d do this for anyone other than my little man…
who… incidentally, loves it to bits!
Well, he’d BETTER!
Party in an hour. Gotta love McDonald’s. No stress!
