When the birthday boy requested for a Yellow Toad cake, I had no idea what he was talking about. I thought I knew all about Super Mario when I made the Super Mario cake but I guess I was wrong. There are so many new characters in the Super Mario world that I never knew existed! Anyway, I had to rely on the internet to check out what yellow toad looked like & here’s what I ended up with.
The cupcakes were the devils food chocolate cupcake filled with chocolate ganache. Recipe taken from Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes
Yellow Toad and all the other characters were made from marshmallow fondant. Usually I would use sugar paste to make figurines but since I was only making one character, I decided to use marshmallow fondant. It worked out ok except that it didn’t dried as quickly as sugar paste, so it was a little hard to maintain the shape of the hat. But in the end, it held up and birthday boy was happy and that was the most important factor.
