Mario Galaxy 2
This cake was a request through Icing Smiles, Inc. which is an organization that provides cakes through volunteers to children with long term illnesses such as cancer. This was my first request through Icing Smiles and I was super excited. The cake was to be a DREAM cake for his End of Treatment celebration. Conner was 18 months old when diagnosed with brain tumor. He is has had chemo for 5 years and doctors decided he was well enough to stop chemo. His request was Mario Galaxy two. I was completely unaware of this game. I knew old mario, but not this galaxy stuff. The design and research gave me the most stress. The cake actually was a cinch compared to the prep work! To fulfill the request and my design i had to call in some help. The Yoshi cake was made by one friend and the Bowser Boomsday machine was made by another friend. I made the Honeyhive Galaxy cake and the cloud cake along with the wooden stand (made by my husband) and details on the cake stand. My friends really came through for me. The cake was awesome and the kids at his school had a fit over it. The honeyhive bottom half was made out of RKT covered in chocolate and MMF. The top part was 2 layers of chocolate cake covered in BC and MMF. Cloud cake was white cake covered in BC and MMF. After this cake, I need to catch up on some sleep!
