>Our Son’s Nintendo Themed Birthday

>My wife and I celebrated our son’s first birthday this past Saturday.
I am a huge Star Wars fan, and my wife also enjoys Star Wars.
I assumed that our son’s first birthday party would be a Star Wars themed birthday.  Then, towards the end of February or beginning of March, my wife suggested we have a Nintendo themed birthday party instead.

So, we started planning for a Nintendo themed party!

Take a look at some pictures, of my personal favorite, the cake/cupcakes that Mrs. CoffeewithGames(my wife) made for our son’s party!

The 1up cake, now joined by Super Mushroom cupcakes, and decorated with Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, a Bob-omb, a Bullet Bill, and a Winged Goomba, from this view.

Nintendo themed plates and napkins
Thoughts:
We had a lot of fun trying to think of things for our son’s party, and my wife had a lot of fun making the 1Up Mushroom birthday cake, as well as the Super Mushroom cupcakes.
The cake and cupcakes were(and are) delicious.
I will try to post more pictures of other decorations from the party, later this week!
Questions:
I’m not a cook.  If it can’t be poured into a bowl and milk added to it, or heated in the microwave, more than likely, I won’t attempt to make it(pancakes are the exception).
If you cook, have you ever attempted to cook anything Nintendo or gaming related?  If so, was the final outcome of the food design, how you thought it would be?

    >@CAB:The entire mushroom was cake.The pan she used for the top portion, was the Wilton Soccer Ball Pan, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000VMFN4/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=coffeew-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B0000VMFN4.That link is to it directly on Amazon.com, but you should be able to find it at your local craft store, or Wal-Mart.The bottom portion she used one pan, but baked two portions from it, then stacked the portions on top of each other.This link shows what our pan looks like that she used for the bottom portion, but I'm not sure the exact size she used…http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00004S7YR/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=coffeew-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00004S7YRIf you have any other questions, I can ask my wife in the morning, and try to respond tomorrow afternoon.
