As you can tell...these are Nintendo cookies.
For my brother Ali's birthday last year I made him these. So I wanted to stick within the same theme but do something a little bit different.
I wanted to do Super Mario but I panicked and thought I would screw it up :(
To make Toad I had to use a muffin cookie cutter and round the tops a bit with my fingers before baking them. Sorry lumpy headed Toads!
Here are some Fire flowers:
And the little collection:
When I was around 6 or 7 my parents bought me a Super Nintendo. It was the best day ever. My mom and dad hung out with me all night and we played Mario and had a swell old time.
I think I have always been surrounded by video games, though. From my Uncle's old Atari to the original NES -- I have always thought there something so special about video games.
All the new fancy stuff is great -- but I do miss my Nintendo/Super Nintendo days. I will forever have a soft spot for my gaming pals <3
And I am totally referring to the characters in the games. I thought they were legit people in my life. How much cooler would my life be if that were the case?! Infinitely cooler.
Let's have a quick peek at the cake!
A four layer dark chocolate cake with caramel, yes CARAMEL buttercream, chocolate ganache and caramel drizzle.
Oh and of course Caramilk pieces for every slice.
My family loved it -- and so did the birthday boy. Urr...Umm...well I think. He's turning 20 -- for some reason they just don't get as excited as the rest of us ;)
I found these super slim candles and I thought they were SO COOL!
Anywho that's my brothers birthday desserts! I also made cake pops from the leftover cake. They were so good!!!!
Not a bad spread, if I do say so myself!
Another busy week of orders is ahead of me -- how is your April going? With all the rain my migraines are in full blown crazy mode!
Happy Cake, Cookie and Catchin' Up!
