I piled together yellow cake and made sure it was a perfect cube, then the whole cake was covered in gold fondant. Next, I cut a piece of orange fondant out and placed it on top.
The hardest part was cutting out all the question marks and the shadows out of the fondant, not to mention the mushroom and coins!
I piped a border using gold buttercream frosting to finish off the bottom.
There were a lot of other things I wanted to do with this cake, but unfortunately there was a time limit in place. I’ll probably attempt another version in the future.
I also used a home-made recipe for both the fondant and the buttercream frosting.
