So naturally she picked the original Super Mario Brothers for a theme.
It was a lot of work but a lot of fun.... and now All About the Details:
The main sweets spread!
I made the graphics for the 8 bit classic Mario blocks & Coins for his birthday banner.
On the table we have the cake, red hots, skittles, chocolate mustaches, chocolate cake pops, pretzel rods and assorted Mario themed candies.
I made the cake [here's the recipe] with Mario, Luigi & Princess Peach exploding out of the console! I just love making this cake. Lots of details but so worth it.
With the cake scraps [see this post] I made little Bomb Cake Pops [called Bob-ombs]. I'm excited about cake pops now, I can't wait to make more...
I made these Piranha Plant centerpieces to give the food table more of a Mario feel. I also created those food labels.
I've posted a tutorial about these centerpieces so you can make your own :)
Look at this radishes! Aren't they just so darn cute? My friends nephew made those. I'm filing this idea for later use.
Here's a sneak peek at the Photo Booth we made! This post will be on the blog next week!
And whats a birthday party without a Pinata? Here's how to make it!
The birthday man was super surprised and loved the party. I'd call it a great success!
