Super Mario Birthday party - Part 2

In this part 2 will describe how I made the cake. For the games description go to Part 1.


As it was the first time I was making a cake with decorations, I wanted to do something relatively easy. I was so scared to fail that I made a test cake the week before. Never again! I just doubled myself the work and I was tired when came the moment to make the cake for the birthday.

For the test cake I made one chocolate, in a 25 cm diameter x 10 cm high round mould like this one.

For the receipt of the cake, I used molly cakes from this website. If you want to use this receipt, I strongly recommend following all the tips and tricks she gives here.

I made a chocolate ganache to stick the fondant to the cake and to add a bit of different texture to my cake. You can find the receipt I used on my favourite website My cake.

I covered the cake entirely with blue fondant to make it look like the sky.

Then I made small decorations with fondant of very typical elements of Mario. For example, the question mark box, the bricks box, coins, green pipes, some clouds, the piranha flowers. I even tried to make some small goomba!

The result is not perfect but for a first try I was quite satisfied with it. Anyway, I didn’t need it perfect this time, it was more to try the cake receipt and how to use fondant as it was my first time attempting such a cake. I just brought this cake to work on Monday and my colleagues were very happy to eat it.

For the birthday cake the procedure is almost the same. I just did two cakes instead of one. Since I had managed the first one, I thought I would try to make some bigger to impress kids.

I made one chocolate cake, in a 25 cm diameter x 10 cm high and one nature cake, in a 20 cm diameter x 7 cm high.

I covered both cake with the ganache then covered each one with blue fondant. I was very disappointed about how I laid the blue fondant this time. It’s not smooth, you can see a lot of bumps. I had managed so well the first time… But after baking or making decorations for a week, every day, I was tired and didn’t have as much patience unfortunately. That’s why I would never attempt again two cakes in two weeks. For the decorations the main elements were the same than last time.

I added a sign written “super Adrian” in the same font of super mario. For this I printed some letters in the Super Mario font. You can just download it and install in on your computer.

Then I cut these letters and used them as a template to make the shape of the letters.

I made more mushrooms this time (one per guest that they don’t fight for it).

You can see the result on the pictures below.
