My next attempt at cakery came when my husband announced that he *had* to bring something to a bake sale for his college's fundraiser and I found a cupcake competition online.
I just knew this was a perfect excuse to be creative!
So I decided to hit up some Nintendo supporting characters (and candies) for help:
1 up and Super Shroom
Adding in some Koopa Shells
This goomba was made from microwaving a tootsie roll, stretching it over, and adding some iced details.
Petey Piranha- chomp chomp!
Packaged, ready for transport
I *love* Kirby!!
Okay...so he's not on Mario Bros. but I couldn't help it - the inspiration bug hit!
Kirby, Coins, and an Invincibility Star
So that's what I made for his bake sale. And the online contest.
Only I misread the deadline as midnight, not noon, and missed entering by 1.5 hours.
I was a little peeved.
But at least the cupcakes were still well received :)
