Super Mario World Cake
Super Mario World Cake
This Super Mario World cake was made for a friend of a friends son's birthday! He is soooo into video games!
I baked two 6" layers and two 10" layers and 1 cake from the Wilton ball pan (half of it)
I iced the two 10" layers in light blue buttercream and covered with light blue fondant. Stick back in the fridge
Then I iced the two 6" tiers with white buttercream and covered with white fondant. Stick back in the fridge
I took the half rounded cake and iced with red buttercream and covered with red fondant.
I then stack the 6" white tier on top of the blue 10" tier. I stuck a dowel rod all the way through the middle and had enough sticking up from the white tier to stick the red half circle on along with some buttercream icing to help it stick. This forms the top of the mushroom.
I cut out hills and bushes with light and dark green fondant and stuck it to the sides of both tiers with water. I took some brown fondant and cut squares using the little square fondant cutter to form the brick things. On some I put question marks with black buttercream and some I indented a brick pattern with a knife. I put those on the side of the bottom tier.
I also cut out clouds from white fondant and stuck on the sides of the top and bottom tier.
The polka dots from the top red tier to make the mushroom head was cut from white fondant using the large circle fondant cutter.
the eyes are black buttercream
I shaped the turtle shells by hand with red fondant and the outline is white buttercream.
On the side I have some mean looking Venus flytraps. I rolled 3 small red fondant balls. I took a craft knife and cut little slits for the mouths. Roll some green fondant into little sausages.
I made teeth with buttercream icing by just pulling down a little to form them. Then used buttercream to outline the lips. I put a toothpick in the back of the head and stuck it to the cake to look like they are standing up.
I made the mushroom that's standing on the top tier by rolling a green fondant ball and shaping it like a mushroom head. White fondant was rolled out like a small sausage and stuck to the head. Let dry overnight.
I then just took very small white fondant balls smashed with my finger to make the polka dots and they eyes are black buttercream.
I make gold fondant and cut the star and wrote 5 up (for his 5th birthday) with black buttercream.
