The mother who ordered this cake was a previous client that had ordered a Dallas cowboy cake for her father’s birthday last year. Since then, she has become addicted to my cupcakes. When her son’s first birthday came around, she couldn’t resist getting a cake from me. Unlike most mom’s of one year olds, she didn’t go with the typical theme (like Mickey Mouse, or anything in shades of baby blue). Oh no, she is way to cool for that, her kid was turning one, so he needed a “1up” birthday cake, Super Mario Brothers style.
Instead of having the smash cake at the traditional first birthday party, she used it for a photo shoot for his 1st birthday photos.
Nicole Jade Photography took this photo and I love the background and all of the detail. Love it when people include me in their creative celebrations. Here is the 1up Mushroom cake before William got a hold of it.
Quick background on Super Mario Brothers. Created in 1985 for the Nintendo gaming console and one of the most popular selling games of all time. I even bought the Nintendo DS version for my kids and it was nice to see them loving the game as much as I did as a kid.
