Super Mario Bros themed party
One of the two Fondant cakes we had specially made for the event.
With the exception of the big Mario toy figure, everything else were hand made sugar sculptures. My wife and I sat down with the owner of Dexter’s Bakeshop to show photo references, actual Mario toys and character key chains (to use as reference for character proportions).
I guess we inspired Chef Raymond enough to go out of his way in making his first Mario Bros-themed fondant cake simply amazing. I love the asymmetrical design of the cakes; it gave the cake the fluid movement that fits nicely with the video game theme.
My only complaint was that the same sugar characters were lined up together rather than spreading/mixing them all other the cake for better effect. I didn’t want to risk ruining the cake by moving them around so that’s what the guests saw.
