Anyway, for Jordan and Loney's birthdays I asked them what they wanted their cakes to be decorated like. Jordan kept going back and forth for a while, but ultimately decided on a Mario cake. I thought, 'ok, I can do that.' I figured though that Loney needed a cake all his own, since we kinda celebrate them together. I ask him what he wanted. He thought for a moment then said, "a Bullet Bill cake." I figured I had some skill as a cake decorator that I might be able to pull it off. Well, I did!!
I was so nervous making it at first. I didn't have enough black fondant, so I had to mix it with some extra white. But it did turn out, and Loney was super happy with it.
Next came Jordan's cake. I bought Mario and Luigi keychain toys from Fry's Electronics because I KNEW I would not be able to make those two characters.
I made all of the mushrooms, turtle shells, bullet bill, goombas and Lakita out of fondant. I'm truely amazed how with a little imagination and a whole lot of luck, I can put together a cake.
I wonder if I actually would be good at this for a living....NAH! Too much stress.
