Super Mario Bros Cake
My youngest son turned 8 this week, and today he was had a party in Riverside Bowl in New Brighton, which by the way I would highly recommend, the staff were great, and the young girl who lead our party of children did a wonderful job. With it’s bowling alleys, laser quest and amusement arcade it kept all the boy thoroughly entertained.
My son was unsure what kind of cake he wanted, he did suggest some ludicrous ideas at first, ideas that I thought Carlos Bakery and Charm City Cakes might struggle with, but then came the creative’s dream words “you can do what you like” HELL YES, that’s what I’m talking about!
A cake I’d been wanting to try for ages after the success of my Super Mario cupcakes, was a Super Mario cake, so it was a no brainer that this was going to happen. Luckily for me, my 8 year old is Mario fan. Phew!
I decided to keep it simple and not over complicate the cake too much, but in all fairness, I wish the cake had been about 4 tiers, I had so much that I wanted to add to it, but I felt that giving the 8 children at the party half a cake each wouldn’t of been good for the waist lines, so I just made the one.
Me being me, the inside of the cake wasn’t going to be normal coloured. Oh no! I decided to stripe the sponge red and green for Mario & Luigi. It had to be done.
I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it.
