He's the bad guy. After months of deliberation, Sage decided he wanted a Bowser shell-shaped birthday cake. The night before his party I made it. Here's how:
First, I mixed 2 boxes of cake mix and poured the batter into a cake pan, a larger pie pan, and a shallow metal mixing bowl. (Note: Bowl-shaped cakes take longer to bake.) Then I let them cool separately. Here they are before the icing:
Next, I iced the bottom layer with whitie icing...
and stacked them again,
and smoothed out the icing.
Now for the spikes. I used sugar cones that I coated with light yellow icing.
It was and experiment that kind of failed at first, but I got the hang of it. (Note: Don't just try to ram the cone in. Carve circle with a spoon first and then slowly push the cone in deep.)
Bower has 10 spikes - 4 down the middle/top and three on each side.
(Note: Have extra cones available, there may be some casualties.)
Next, I filled a freezer bag with orange icing, cut a hole in the corner of the bag,
and squeezed an orange ring around each spike at the base.
I dyed some shaved coconut green and scattered it on the tray to look like grass, and here's the end result:
I defeated Bowser!
