We’re the first to admit, but a lot of the giant cupcakes we make are very girly. In fact, cupcakes can be a little stereotyped into being a girl’s cake, and the boys don’t get a look in. Well, cupcakes don’t have to be just for girls! Admittedly, the cakes we do for boys aren’t all flowers and prettiness, they can be if you’d like them to be. But we relish the challenge a more masculine cake throws at us.
Back at the end of January, I was just finishing off at the shop on a Saturday evening, when a young lad and his Dad popped by. I’d created cakes before for the family, and this time it was Ronaldo’s birthday.
Ronaldo asked if I could make a giant cupcake look like a Toad. Certainly, I thought. Let’s go for warts and green slime, the works. A quick re-education later, and we were actually talking about Toad from Mario Kart, the toadstool. Now, I’m a little older than Ronaldo and the last time I played the Nintendo it was probably the original version; oh the shame! Anyway, that cleared up, Ronaldo had in his mind a very clear picture of how his birthday cake should be, and we hope we did it justice.
Covering both the top and the bottom, made a change to creating a giant cupcake lathered in buttercream; and I was really pleased with how it turned out. I hope that all the gamers out there, and Ronaldo, think we got it just right.
Happy Birthday Ronaldo!
