A MEMBER OF MY MAN CLAN IS TURNING

5 on Saturday, so sister power was activated tonight. We're a great team and like to burn the midnight oil.
Inspiration for the cake came from this post, but I used this fondant recipe..

Last night I made the fondant and let it set up overnight.
Then earlier today I made two 9x13 cakes, layered them with buttercream frosting and cut them into a number 5....
Tonight, many dye jobs later, much like my sister's hair, we had a multi color assortment of fondant shapes....

Fondant was smoothed on the cake and shapes were put into place. It's hard to tell with this lighting, but the base fondant color is sky blue...

Our finished product is a cake that will surprise the birthday boy.

We just hope he isn't disappointed it isn't Luigi on top - his favorite but he was sold out.
It would have taken me FOREVER to finish this cake, (my first solo after this class), thanks Steph for all your help - you are the best mushroom maker!!....

That's an adorable, amazing cake! I can't wait to see pictures of his reaction. I want one for my next birthday.

That is absolutely fabulous!!! I love it! Great job to both of you ~ I'm thinking I need to learn how to make fondant because that is cooler than any cake I've ever frosted and better than any store bought cake I've ever seen!!

Awesome cake! I've got one turning 5 soon, too, and it looks like a car cake is in my future.

You did an amazing job on the cake (I love the comment about "after many dye jobs, like my sisters hair)!!! He is going to love it and say, "where's Luigi?" BUT he'll love it!!! I see many fondant cakes in your future ;) You and Stephanie make a great team!!!!
