Mario Cake



My kid had so much fun hosting the blog last week.  A huge thank-you to everyone that left comments.  I like comments, but she LOVES them.

My multi-talented fellow trophy wife, Kiersten made the coolest "cake" for her son's Mario themed B-day. She used 143 mini-cupcakes to make this Nintendo masterpiece.  I am normally not a big fan of cupcake cakes and think most of them are a big frosting mess that belong on Cake Wrecks.  But this one is awesome-it's clean and simple and who doesn't love mini-cupcakes !  It makes me me want to bake up some batches of min-cupcakes and create my own piece of bake good art.
 It's like a Lite Brite you can eat.

How fun would it be to whip up some red, white, and blue ones and make a flag?

  5. I saw that Mario cupcake cake over at http://www.cuteasafox.com/search/label/Mario she got it from http://cupcakestakethecake.blogspot.com/2009/05/mario-cupcake-cake.html

    It is a really neat idea, where did your friend get the idea from? Hope the party was fun.

  8. Thanks, yes she did have some awesome ideas! Makes me wish my little one liked Mario, but alas, she is 4 and has no clue who he even is.
