"It's-a-Mario!" My son Tyler had a great Mario birthday party!
Next to drawing the Mario head, my biggest challenge was coming up with a way to decorate my son's choice of a jello cake in the Mario theme. I settled on coloring most of the whipped topping blue and left a little white to make the clouds. Easy fix. I used a old original Betty Crocker recipe to make the cake---it was delicious:
Silver White Cake
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening ( I used stick butter)
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 egg whites
Mix dry ingredients together. Then gently stir in milk, vanilla and egg whites. Pour into greased pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
Makes one 9x 13 or two round 8 or 9 1/2"
Then in order to make it a jello cake... First I let the cake cool. Then I poked holes all over the top of the cake. I followed the package directions to make a strawberry jello, and poured it on the top of the cake, then let it set in the fridge for about 3 hours. Finally I topped it with the whipped topping about 1 hour before serving.
Mario star sugar cookies were a hit! I loved the recipe I found here.
Tyler has always been my child to make thousands of "funny" faces when we try to take his picture. No "normal" smiles for this kid. :0)
Happy Birthday Tyler!!!!
