My son turned 6 years old this past week, and he is obsessed with Mario! I had a house full of kindergartners, a bounce house, video games set up, and of course lots of Mario-inspired sweets. I wanted to make a really cute & sweet Mario cake, but son was having no part of that. He wanted the Bowser Castle with lots of Lava. Well, I was a little disappointed but it’s his birthday, and if he wants a dark castle then a dark castle is what he gets. I did inform my son that if he wanted doom & gloom for a cake, I at least get to make sweet little mushroom cupcakes. He said that was fine. 🙂
On the menu for this Sugar Shindig: a Chocolate Buttermilk Cake with Peanut Buttercream filling, covered with Chocolate Italian Buttercream & Marshmallow Fondant, Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes topped with Vegan Vanilla Frosting and marshmallow Fondant, and Mario Sugar Cookies.
