Bob-omb Cake


Okay, all you Super Mario fans!  If you love all things Mario, you'll love this cake! Cool, huh?  Alex turned 8 this week and even though he had a Mario-themed cake last year, he requested at the very last minute that I make him a Bob-omb cake this year.  I knocked it out in a couple of hours and he was thrilled with how it turned out.
