Okay, all you Super Mario fans! If you love all things Mario, you’ll love this cake!
Cool, huh? Alex turned 8 this week and even though he had a Mario-themed cake last year, he requested at the very last minute that I make him a Bob-omb cake this year. I knocked it out in a couple of hours and he was thrilled with how it turned out.
See, this year he didn’t want a big party so I hadn’t planned to bake a cake. Instead, he asked if we would take him down to Austin so that he could visit the capitol building, do the Bat Cruise, and eat at Stubb’s BBQ. I thought we’d just grab a cake or cupcakes while we were there, but when his actual birthday arrived on Monday, I could tell he was in need of a cake. When I offered to make one and he suggested Bob-omb, I was relieved. Very little detail, easy-to-cover-in-fondant shape….I’m cool with that.
So…hello, Bob-omb and happy birthday to my big ol’ 8 year old!
