Eli's First Mario Cake

This cake very nearly whipped his behind! But, he learned so much from this cake and it strengthened his skills so quickly for just one project. This was his very own birthday cake. It was delish!


It started out with baking and the crumb coat the first day. Yes, he did it all in his Mario jammies that evening. :)

The next day found him putting the bones, so to speak, on Mario's face.

He enjoyed that quite a bit. Enjoy the next steps...

A little help from dad with the support system. This was lesson ONE that he has filed away forever.

Crazy boy!

Making marshmallow fondant. This is HARD work and he and I both need a microwave. I need the microwave so I don't have to help him as much.

Time to use that blue fondant he made.

Awesome! Ani's response to the last picture, "They killed Mario."

You really need to send pictures of some of his work to some of the cake shows on Food Network, like Cake Boss. His work is fantastic!

Peace and Laughter,

My five year old loves this! Great job! He's so gifted!

Wow he is learning SO much! What a great talent to have. I love that homeschooling really helps kids find their talents. That is what I have been trying to remember is that they have more time to figure out what they can do. AWESOME!
