I had a lovely reader ask if I could make her son some Super Mario cookies for his birthday.
I said yes.
I am crazy.
See, I have been coveting this KopyKake thing that my friend Marion uses. She is awesome and makes the most gloriously beautiful cookies and I hope I can be just like her when I grow up. (maturity-wise of course, I think she is actually younger than me in people years)
Whenever I have someone ask me to make a cookie that involves an outline of some sort I freeze up and my palms sweat and I have irrational thoughts and just want to make excuses as to why I am unable to make it.
But I decided to take the bull by the horns and attempt this one…
I know that everyone and their mother have made Nintendo cookies and cakes and I am not making waves in the confectionery design community with my little mushrooms…
but it was a big step for me OK?
This is what was giving me nightmares. The faces.
(I totally went back and added the “L” on Luigi’s hat… whoops)
It was a definitely a challenge… and for that I am grateful. Its fun to get out of the box. Right?
I just hope next time someone wants a game theme Pac Man is involved.
So long Luigi! (I think he’s gonna miss me)
I used my favorite cookie recipe and favorite royal icing substitute.
