My little boy turned five this month and I obviously had planned a pretty big & special cake for him!

I spent a lot of time planning it all but my son had his own ideas and he was pretty determined to have a MARIO Birthday Cake.

How could I say no...???

 

So, here it is:

This cake was really a lot of fun to make as I played Mario on my Nintendo as a kid.

Having a DS now, with Super Mario Bros on it, was pretty cool: it meant that i was able to check elements for the cake by playing the game!

The hardest bit: MARIO himself!

 

Making that little figurine out of sugarpaste was really hard.

It probably took me longer to make Mario than to make the rest of this cake!

I have been wanting to write my first article for a while now but i did not know where or how to start.


So, what better opportunity than to start with the cake I made last week: my husband & I, first year wedding anniversary Cake.

The theme: New York

(we had the chance to go to New York for our honeymoon and we had the most amazing time!)

 

 

A little explanation:

 The bottom tier: Manahattan

 

For the record: there are over 750 little sugar squares for the windows, on the first nine buildings only.

  The second tier: The NFL (American Football)

 

Only few hours after arriving in New York, we went to see the last game of the pre-season.

  The third tier: The Tavern On The Green

 

The Tavern On The Green is a restaurant in Central Park: we had an amazing evening there.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you can see, this cake is far from perfect: i have no experience or training in cake decorating & design, therefore, I am still in the learning process.

 

One thing that I have clearly not mastered yet: the fondant and covering a cake with the fondant.

Making fondant is quite a difficult thing to accomplish...and, for some reason, when the fondant does turn out ok, I am not able to get a nice, flat finish on the cake.

Only one solution: Practise, practise, practise...
