It's unbelievable that Alexander is going to be six years old. These kids are growing up way too fast. Even though I was dog tired from Miss E's party yesterday, I got up early to make Alexander's cake for his birthday party. He's just too cute to disappoint! His request was for a Super Mario cake as he has discovered playing the classic game.
Again, a cake not covered in fondant as per the request of the birthday boy. Not a bad thing since I haven't replenished my supply. This was a 10" chocolate cake. I am learning if I'm not going to cover a cake in fondant, I have to make it the night before. The cake really needed more time in the fridge before I covered it in icing because it was so soft and there were so many crumbs. Made it really hard to get a crisp edge.
I am so thrilled with how Mario turned out. The edible black marker makes all the difference.
Miss E said me as we are going into the party that she doesn't bring a present because she brings the cake.
"Umm...but I made the cake. I did all the work." I said.
" Yes, but I am presenting it to him!" she said.
