This Super Mario Brothers birthday cake I did for my fiancee’s nephew’s 5th birthday party. It was a Mario themed party and he wanted Super Mario Brothers on his cake.  Me being me I had to make it epic which it was.

I started off just flat icing it then I hand drew everything into it with a toothpick. Then I just started coloring in or filling every detail in. After I finished that I outlined everything in black to make it cartooney, looking like a video game is. After that I started adding minor details like shading and lighting reflections on the pipes.

All in all the cake took me about 3-4 hours at work just because I am a perfectionist with all of my cakes. I hope you all enjoy this and if I can give you any advice it would be to just be creative and let it go. Don’t think you cant do it, all you need to be is creative. Good luck!
