My son is turning 5 and he’s obsessed with video games. He insisted on a Mario Kart cake this year so of course I searched online for days for ideas and found this racetrack cake. While it seemed easy enough to do, I will admit I had some issues with the actual carving process.

I wasn’t quite sure how to do it so again I Googled and Googled ideas and at one point I almost wanted to trash the whole cake and start over lol. Once I started stacking and icing it it all came together and I was very happy with the outcome and my son couldn’t have been happier.

The cakes are iced in buttercream. I made all the decorations by hand out of fondant from the finish line sign to the flowers around the edges and shells, bananas and bullet. The figures were toys that were purchased from McDonald’s

enjoy!!.
