This Super Mario Brothers Birthday Cake is my first attempt at a fondant cake. I took on the challenge when my son asked for the Super Mario Brothers theme and there was nothing to be found. I said sure I’ll try it so I watched some YouTube videos and dove right in. Did a test run with marshmallow fondant and I didn’t like it.
I went with the Butter cream fondant recipe with Karo syrup. I ordered the center print out and I did everything else. I struggled to get a thick fondant so I had to knead in some gum paste and let them dry. The cake is two layers of half sheets. It was 4 boxes of Pillsbury Devils foods chocolate cake mix. I had fun but I was running out of time and had to stay up till 4:00 a.m. to finish it the take a nap and get back up to set up the pavilion. I want to make more!!!
