Super Mario Bros Cake (24311)
So apparently Jimmy Fallon is a big Nintendo fan and is especially fond of Super Mario Bros. In light of the recent announcement that Jimmy will be taking over for Jay Leno’s Tonight Show, the folks at Nintendo commissioned us to create this Super Mario Bros cake that they delivered to Rockerfeller Center in NYC.
The cake was two tiers and for obvious reasons the star at the top was the focal point of the cake. The top tier included a sculpted Mario in his famous mid-jump pose. Both the top and bottom scenes included scenes reminiscent of the original Super Mario Bros with Goombas, gold coins, a red super mushroom and a piranha plant.
The entire cake included alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla cake with chocolate and vanilla buttercream.
We’ve been fortunate to work with Nintendo on a few cakes through the years. Way back in 2009, Nintendo reached out to us for the launch of Nintendo DS and commissioned us to create several Nintendo DS cakes. Following that cake, in 2010 Nintendo reached out to use to create Super Mario Bros 25th Anniversary cake.
We are thrilled to have had multiple opportunities to work with such an iconic brand and hope Jimmy enjoyed his cake!
Update: Here’s a video we shot at the bakery. Note we have a special surprise guest narrating this video – our very own Anna. She does a great job, hope you enjoy it.
