Video Game Themed Dessert

As you probably know from our past ridiculous-ness, Rosalind and I like to cook. And sometimes, we don’t just make normal everyday things. (Bacon cupcakes anyone?) So when Rosalind and her husband Billy decided to throw a party (read: Rock Band, board games, and alcohol night) for some of their geeky friends (read: DnD group and science lab buddies) we knew we had to make a dessert worthy of the attendees. Thus was born: Mario Cheerio Treats, with scenes based on Super Mario Bros. 3:

This isn’t a recipe post, since we just used a basic Rice Krispie Treat recipe, with Cheerios and added some peanut butter M&Ms (the best M&Ms, but seriously that is a geek-out post for another time). To decorate we just used basic white and buttercream icing and fondant (store-bought and home-made). We did fine details by dipping a toothpick in food coloring and literally drawing on the fondant.

Here’s some more pictures of our creation!

Level 5-3: Kuribo’s Shoe

World 5: The Tower

We had to be careful cutting them because we didn’t want to slice off Mario’s head! But they were delicious, though super sweet! Turns out it was really easy to do, as well. If you try to make a video game themed edible creation be sure to let us know!

    You even did scenes from two of my favorite levels (why is there only one level with the boot? Why?!). Kudos.
