It was a small, personal 4" chocolate cake filled with chocolate fudge icing and covered in sugar paste. I thought it would be a cool idea to have Mario actually punching through the cake, which is why you can see the folds around the red on the Toad section. Mario himself was made using a combination of sugar paste, flower paste and modelling paste. It was seriously fiddly getting all of the features on his face done properly, and the little hole for his mouth, but it was all worth it in the end.
I was in such a rush to finish the cake that I didn't actually have time to take any good quality photos, but I managed to snap a quick few before I left (thank yoooou iPhone). I swear every time I see his little face I just start laughing!
Now, I wonder if we have the old Nintendo 64 lying around anywhere...
