So, it’s been a bit longer since my last post. I’d really like to be able to post every day, but I just can never find time. Ever wish there were a few extra hours in a day? I’d love 3 or 4 extra hours. You know what I’d do? Bake, sew, knit, scrapbook… and READ. I love to read. In fact, I just finished (I couldn’t put it down… it only took me a few days) the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I read the first one in the series, and it was SO good. I can’t wait to read the next two. However, I’m in the middle of 2 or 3 other books, so I’d better wait. It’s just so hard though! I. Want. To. Read. The. Next. Book. SO. BAD!
Anyways, a few weeks ago, I posted a few cake posts. Check out my KitKat birthday cake, and my rose birthday cake. Since then, I’ve made another cake. This one was a character cake for my hubby’s birthday. He turned 22! Old eh? ;) Happy Birthday Babe!
It just so happens that he likes to play Super Smash Brothers with my younger brothers. And I just so happened to have a Mario cake pan. Therefore…. well, you know what happened…
Tada! Super Mario!
Now, you can tell who he is here… right? But when I first started, it was kind of scary. First of all, how could this possibly be Mario?
But, after much time, effort [and frustration]… hemhem… Mario came to life. My mother came to me when it was done and said, ‘So, it is Kirby?’ Which it most obviously is not. But she enjoyed the exasperated look on my face, I’m sure.
After the cake was done, I made icing for it, and dyed it the colours I needed (Warning:red is HARD to achieve). Then I coated the cake with a layer of white icing. I then outlined my Mario and started to fill him in. There are a LOT of little stars of icing on this guy!
I have to tell you though, the hardest part of this whole cake experience was cutting into it. All the work… Eaten. At least it tasted good. :)
Cael enjoyed it too. He loves EVERYTHING.
Back to cakes – I have done other cakes as well, and I’ll share those with you some day soon. There are always so many things that I want to try and share with you, but again – never enough time. Those who live close to me – need anything baked – call me. I’d love to help you out (my dream is to bake for a living – wouldn’t that be great?).
By the way, any suggestions, questions, etc – please let me know! Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed!
