The Birthday Cake

If you have been reading this blog for long, you know that I have dabbled in cake decorating for many years, albeit reluctantly. The times I have truly enjoyed playing with frosting have been for my kids' birthdays.
Every year, I walk the line, trying to make the most captivating cake with as little effort as possible.
I will never be one to enjoy hand-crafting every detail from sugar. I will, however, find ways to get the same feel, using items that I can easily find around the house or in town.
Case in point:
He wanted a Mario Kart cake with Luigi and Mushroom Gorge. I complied.
And threw in a bunch of other characters to keep it interesting.
All of the M&M details were inspired by the Daddy, who also enjoys racing on the Wii.
The bonus is that the characters in their race cars are all pull-back toys that now can be played with.
Yum. I think it was another winner.

Love the cake! You did a great job with it. Almost seems a shame to cut into it to eat it.
