More Mario cake related news

mario turtle shell It is surprising how much interest there is in this cake. Several photos are nearing or have surpassed the 25k view mark and there are 127 people who call one a favorite. I have seen this on Digg, Reddit, joystiq, and, among many others. It really makes me wish I had done something more than snap some photos of this great cake. In case you didn’t see it, this was made by Robin of Gateaux Inc. Hit her up for your next wedding cake.

I have posted 5 more photos that I took with a macro lens on Jesse’s D70s (check his photos out for more wedding fun, including Mouser with a moustache and me on the verge of being milked). Enjoy.

Super (Mario) Wedding Cake

Super (Mario) Cake At perhaps the best wedding (congratulations Brent and Annette) I have been to, there was by far the best wedding cake I have seen. Other people tend to agree as the photos have been linked to from Boing Boing and Wonderland to name just two. That explains how some of the photos have nearly 7000 views and over 50 people calling one a favorite.

UPDATE: The creator of this cake, Robin, from Gateaux Inc which is located in Plymouth, MN. “was amazing to work with and of course is amazingly talented” according the the bride and I can’t say that I could disagree. Just look at some of her other work.

The cake toppers were very hard to find. The bride looked for months and months and finally found a set on; they were from Japan’s “Nintendo Club”

Here is the whole set (with more to come as I get some closeup macro shots I took, uploaded.)
