I spent the day baking today for this spunky lad.
All he wanted was a $100 note...
... The Skylanders Game...
... and a new remote controlled boat since Milo accidentally ate the last one!
Tomorrow we are off to the indoor skate park for his party with a slight Mario theme to it so the grand cake baking had to happen today.
Pinterest on the iPad acting as my guide to various Mario cakes on the interwebs.
I covered him with buttercream icing, only dipping my finger in once or eleven times! (Really, how can butter, sugar and vanilla essence taste so good??!!)
I colour and then cut out all the pieces I need like a jigsaw puzzle and lay them on top of the buttercream layer. For Mario I only covered the top, not the sides cause I don't know how to do edges without messing up the icing!
Some of his proportions are a little off, like his mouth is a wee bit small, but the birthday boy loved him when he got home from school today and that's what really matters!
