I would like to thank Janis Ruby for sending me these amazing photos!

This was a vanilla chiffon cake covered, filled with vanilla buttercream and decorated with rolled fondant.  
Size: 6" wide by 4" tall   serving size: ~8 

Equipment used:

Virgin White white rolled fondant
Americolor gel food colouring:  teal, pink, red, blue, back, and brown
Small cloud cookie cutter
Letter cookie cutters
round cookie cutter
Sharp scalpel exacto knife

How I decorated the cake:
  • I crumb coated and covered the whole cake with teal vanilla cream.  Gel food colouring: Americolor in teal
  • Printed out 2 clip art or coloring book images of Super Mario face.  Tip: use plain black and white images.
  • I took one of the images and cut out Super Mario's face.  
  • Then I rolled out skin colored fondant.   
  • I the Super Mario cutout on top of the fondant, cut around the image, and place it on top of the prepared cake.
  • I used the second image as template to cut out Mario's eyes, nose, hat, moustache and sideburns.
  • I then cut out clouds and letterings and place them on the side of the cake.
  • I also sprinkled some yellow star sprinkles to add some sparkle on the side of the cake.
