This month I took on the challenge of sculpting a mario kart themed cake for a friend of a friend’s birthday. I decided to go with a small two tiered cake (perfect for 20 people) and after much debate, I went with the above design. Choosing what to sculpt on a mario kart cake was indeed very difficult! There was so many options! The goombas, the one-up brick square, the bullet, donkey kong…the list goes on and on. Instead, I did a turtle shell, a star cone, the mushroom, and the old-school mario bros background of blue sky, clouds, and green bushes. The bottom tier was just the race track theme.
The idea behind this cake was to keep it light, fun, and very cartoonish. I hope you all like it as much as I do! Please feel free to leave back feedback, especially if you give it a thumbs down!
