My little boy requested a Mario cake, and lets just say... I am no cake decorator.
Looking for inspiration on pinterest, I quickly decided that most methods were going to be way too complicated for me to try. I haven't got any cake decorating equiptment either.
So an idea popped into my head.
I found this AMAZING Mario Brothers Quilt-a-long a while back, and LOVED the idea (seriously click that link). Angela from Cut To Peices has created some Mario blocks to complete the quilt and basically they are pixel art.
This lead me to google some more mario pixel art. I had bought a packet mix red cake, and some M&Ms and set to work.
This cake is so so easy and anyone could do it. I didn't do Mario or a Mushroom because I didn't have the right colours. If you are more prepared than me you can search out some suitable lollies and create any masterpeice of pixel art that your heart desires :)
