Make Super Mario Paper Cupcake Toppers
Paper cupcake toppers are very simple to make. Here are the basic instructions:

- Matte the images onto cardstock and punch out with a slightly larger paper punch
- Glue together and then attach a lollipop stick or toothpick
- Insert into your frosted cupcakes
For a time saver, you can purchase the Super Mario bottle cap images or the premade Mario cupcake toppers featured here.
Super Mario Cake
Super Mario Cake Using Cake Pan
This birthday cake was created using the 1989 Wilton Super Mario cake pan #2105-2989. This is a retired cake pan; however, it is still available for purchase. Sometimes the cake pans can be purchased with the original pan insert/instructions.

Super Mario Fondant Cakes
Making a Super Mario fondant cake is a very popular design. When using fondant, the possibilities are endless. The five fondant Mario cakes I have pictured here are just examples of what you can do with fondant.
Since Super Mario features bright and bold colors, you could purchase the Wilton ready-made fondant in primary colors. Or, you prefer to make you own fondant, you could tint it instead. To add stars onto your cake, use a five pointed star cookie cutter.
The great thing about decorating with fondant is that you can get as fancy or as simple as you want and the cake will still look awesome. If the fondant cakes I have pictured here look too complicated, no problem. You can bake a basic sheet cake, cover in light blue fondant and then accent with yellow stars, mushrooms, and other Super Mario designs. Use the cakes I have pictured here to spark your creativity and you will be surprised with what you will be able to do!
Super Mario Star Cookies
Mario Fondant Star Cookies
These adorable Super Mario star cookies were created using marshmallow fondant colored blue for the background and the yellow stars were flavored lemon marshmallow fondant. The eyes were black royal icing. Very cute idea! Would make great party snacks or you could wrap these cookies in cello treat bags and hand them out as party favors.

Super Mario Tiered Birthday Cake
Two-tiered Super Mario Cake
Carolyn from the Learning Nook created this terrific Super Mario Cake.
She used Wilton 10" and 6" round cake pans. To achieve the desired height, she baked a total of four cakes. The entire cake was frosted light blue and Super Mario figures were used as cake toppers.
Super Mario Cupcake Stand
This creative Super Mario cupcake stand was designed by swishersweets80's. For instructions and a photo tutorial on how you can create a cupcake tree like this one, please check out my Cupcake Tree hub.
Custom made cupcake picks were used to top the cupcakes. Cut out small circles from colorful cardstock. Then, add on Super Mario images to the circles. Attach the completed circles to popsicle sticks and insert them into the cupcakes.
Swishersweets80's also shares her other party photos including the table setting, decorations and party favors. Check them out!
Funky Mario Cupcake Cake
I love this cake! As soon as I saw it I knew I had to include it on my Super Mario birthday cake page. This cupcake creation is a fun twist on your basic Cupcake Cake. Instead of placing the cupcakes together and icing them as one cake, they are iced individually and arranged to form Super Mario.
Elsharooni used 143 mini cupcakes and 4 cake boards to achieve the look of this cake. The results are amazing. This is a very unique cake idea for your birthday party.
