Mario Brothers Cake/Cupcakes
Next up - Mario! I hadn't actually done a Mario Brothers cake previously, however, I did assist my step-daughter with one she made for her boyfriend's little guy. It was fun but some work ..and she did a simple 8" round cake. The order I got was for a 2-tier cake with 18 cupcakes! It took me an entire week to make all the fondant cupcake toppers, plus the fondant accents for each cake tier - whew! Those little guys are so detailed and I'm sort of a perfectionist.. so.. after a week of sculpting them, I never wanted to see a Mario character again! Anyway, after a very long week, as usual it was all worth it! I was happy with how they turned out, and my client loved it.. especially the birthday boy.. his whole face lit up when he saw the cake! :) ..Cake is dark chocolate fudge with peanut butter filling and buttercream icing. Cupcakes are fudge marble with buttercream icing.
