I was asked to come up with a Mario & Sonic The Hedgehog cake. This is what I came up with. Also they wanted Strawberry Shortcake for the cake. So it is Pound Cake with layers of fresh strawberries and covered with real whipped cream. I stabilized it with piping gel. Mario & Sonic are hand drawn on Fondant and the rings and mushrooms are made from gum paste. The only butter cream on the cake is the red and blue strips. The "grass & sky" are fondant on a cake board. I also included the cupcakes that were also ordered. More for the better view of the mushrooms.
