I don’t know what it is about the Nintendo themed cakes that I love so much. I’m guessing it’s a nostalgia thing, seeing as that I spent most of elementary school with a NES controller in my hands. We’ve featured a Super Mario Bros. cake and a stacked console cake, and now my good friend Miller found a Super Mario Kart/Super Mario Galaxy cake!
According to the Flickr set, the entirety of this amazing confection is edible, from the chocolate decadence cake itself to the Piranha Plants and turtle shells. The couple who chose this as their dessert centerpiece both play video games, and they chose Let The Eat Cake in Costa Mesa, California to do the honors.
Having a friendly and easy to work with baker was… well the frosting on the cake. We felt we made the right choice in choosing Beth for our Mario cake when on the way out of the bakery we heard her ring tone, it was the Super Mario Bros. theme.
I love it, though I have to say that I’d be a little afraid of damaging it while dismantling it to cut and serve.
