#NintendoEaster


#NintendoEaster, Nintendo Cupcakes, Super Mario Cupcakes

Although Abby is back to school already, the Easter fun hasn't stopped for us just yet! We've received another surprise parcel from Nintendo to help us celebrate Easter! They have thoughtfully included recipes, materials as well as a gift voucher for us to get the ingredients for the fun! Thank you Nintendo!

#NintendoEaster, Nintendo Cupcakes, Super Mario Cupcakes

Initially we wanted to do all 3 activities (Nintendo Easter Egg painting, Mario Star Cupcakes and Red Velvet Mushroom Cupcakes), but we used up a good dozen of eggs in the past 2 weeks already, and I have an issue with the amount of food colouring used in Red Velvet Cakes (I have a problem with rainbow cakes as well for the same reason). So I decided to expand the Mario Star Cupcakes fun, and let Abby and Clay do some colouring perhaps this weekend with the lovely poster paints.

Instead of just making stars, I also made Yoshi's Egg and Mushroom heads (I forgot about the body!). It's really fun kneading the colours into the white icing, just like kids playing with Play-Doh! I'm not really creative but just looking at the above picture makes me happy! I'm sure Abby would have enjoyed making these as well, it was a shame that she was at school. But with the amount of ingredients we've got, we can easily make another batch this weekend!

Happy #NintendoEaster!
