I’ve adored all things Disney since my first trip to Orlando in 1975. So when the lovely Jarita from Nintendo World called about a cake for a Disney event, I was honored to get to bring them both to life in cake. I’ve worked with Nintendo world before on Luigi’s 30th birthday cake and Zelda’s anniversary shield.  They are such fun projects to create based on much adored characters and images.  The special event this past weekend was the launch of Disney Magical World.  The game is set around a castle, not unlike Cinderella’s castle in Disney World, so of course the cake had to be a castle!  I couldn’t wait to get started.

Two weeks went into creating this castle cake that sat 27″ tall at the highest spire, and 22 inches wide at the base.

Spires were made from cereal treats and the rest of this baby was all cake.  And we even managed to get a hidden Mickey in there.

I’m not usually around for the ceremony, but thought it would be fun to come back to help them cut the cake for the hundreds of fans that waited in line from 10am.  When we arrived, we were so excited to see that G Hannelius from the Disney show Dog with a Blog was there to cut the cake!

And after building it up for so carefully for so long, we took it down piece by piece… without a moment of sadness or regret.  Our cakes are delicious and made to be eaten.

Can’t wait to see what’s next from Nintendo.
