Super Mario Brothers Party (Part 1- Luigi Cake)

Posted on

My son told me he didn’t want a huge birthday party this year.  Just his best friends over at the house.

I thought this was going to be easy… until he said he still wanted a dessert table. 

With a Luigi cake.

This turned out to be the most difficult cake yet:

At one point, I wanted to ‘accidentally’ drop it on the floor, and just go with the cupcakes.

But with my husband’s help, I finally finished it about 3 hours before the boys arrived.

I’m not too thrilled with it, but it was the best I could do in the time I had. 

How cool is this??

I have more Super Mario baked goods that I will have to post later this week. But for now, here are the chocolate mustaches I made for each boy.

They loved holding them up to their faces and acting silly.

Oh, and the “non-party” ended up being nine 9-year-old boys in my house for 5 hours.

Yeah, and I thought it would be easy.  Ha!

    • I carved his head out of a cake I made in a loaf pan, and the pipe is 4 cake layers (9-inch). Then I covered it with fondant. Crazy amount of work, lol. Thank you so much!! 🙂

  19. This is fabulous! I love everything! Although I am particularly fond of the mystery box pinata. Have you ever seen the lamp someone made that looks like this, which you can ‘punch’ to turn on or off? (Very clever!)

  20. Absolutely fantastic cake!! Really impressive, I’d say your son was delighted! 🙂

  21. You’re not thrilled about this? Why not? This is so awesome! My husband and I are huge Mario fans and this has left both of us absolutely speechless. I can’t believe I’m going to say this but we are very jealous of your son right now! Haha.

    Oh, and do give the lucky boy a big birthday hug from us! 🙂

    • Aw, that’s so nice of you! Yeah, it didn’t come out as nice as I had hoped, but comments like yours make me feel SO much better about it. Thank you so much!! 🙂

  32. My son’s playroom is NES themed with Super Mario Bros amongst the games highlighted. I loved your cake, and think you did a fabulous job. One of the best things about being hard on yourself is that you continue to grow and learn, so I won’t tell you to take it easy. Instead, I’ll tell you, you’re doing great!

  33. My son would have loved this for his birthday, he just turned 21, is that sad or should I say nostalgic?? 😊😊

  34. Love this!! I wish u had a step by step on how to make his face. I have no idea how to do that part.

    Reply
    • Thank you!!! 🙂 I would have no idea how to do the step by step. I just looked at a picture of Luigi and then cut out the pieces of fondant. The head is a cake made in a ball pan. The nose was all fondant. Does that help?
