I was just requested to make a super mario brothers cake. They want mario coming out of a warp pipe. (therefore it's basically going to be mario's torso only on the top) I was wondering on ways i can make this cake?

-could i just stack round cakes to make the pipe and make mario out of rice cereal treats?
-do i need dowels in the pipe to support it form toppling?

thanks.

Since mario is a copyrighted character i would only do this cake if it was a gift.

As for the pipe and RKT, that seems like a good plan.
You will need plate (or cardboard circles) and dowels to support the stacked rounds. The rule of thumb is every 4" of vertical cake you have to put in dowels and a plate (you need some sort of support because the cake will NOT support itself - plus a RKT model on top)

I've been searching the mario cakes on here (I have to do one in July) and saw lots in the gallery like what you have described. i'm sure if you pm'd one of them, they could tell you what worked for them icon_smile.gif

HTH and good luck!

I have a Mario cake in my photos but I don't think it's what you're wanting to do. I absolutely hated doing that cake icon_lol.gif but it's what my grandson wanted. icon_wink.gif

leily is right...supports (cakeboards and dowels) for every 4 vertical inches.
