Me and my kids had fun this weekend making this Wii Remote Birthday Cake. It is alot of fun for kids and adults to make. It is really easy to make also. Here is the ingredients to make the Wii Remote Birthday Cake.
1 (13 by 9-inch) Cake
1 Can (16 oz) Vanilla Frosting
Black Food Coloring
4 Pieces With Hard-Shelled Orbit Gum
7 Mentos
3 Brown, 2 Blue and 1 Red M&M's Minis
1 Marshmallow
1 Blue Licorice Twist (Twizzler Rainbow)
What You'll Need:
A serving Platter
A Bread Knife
A Small Knife
2 Resealable Sandwich-Size Plastic Bags (Ziploc)
Trimming The Cake:
1.) Trim the top of the cake to make level.
2.) Cut a 2-inch strip down one long edge of cake and discard.
3.) Round corners of cake with a small knife.
4.) Transfer cake, cut side down, on a serving platter.
Frosting The Cake:
1.) Add a small amount of black food coloring to 1/4 cup of the vanilla frosting to tint it gray.
2.) Spoon the gray frosting into a resealable bag.
3.) Tint 1 Tbsp of the vanilla frosting black with more food coloring.
4.) Spoon the black frosting into a resealable bag.
5.) Spread the remaining vanilla frosting on top and sides of cake and make smooth.
To Complete The Decoration:
1.) Snip a very small corner from the bag of gray frosting and the bag of black frosting.
2.) Pipe a thin line of the gray frosting about 1/2 inch in from outer edge of cake, as pictured.
3.) Press the M&M's Minis, Mentos and Orbit gum into the top of the cake as pictured for the controller's buttons.
4.) With the black frosting, pipe 6 rows of 3 black dots as pictured.
5.) Cut the blue licorice twist in half, leaving 2 inches at one end. Press the uncut end into the flat side of a marshmallow and press the licorice twist into the side base of cake.
6.) Press the cut ends of the licorice twist together to make the hand strap.

  3. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. It's great that you play Mario games with your 8 year old daughter, I do exactly the same thing (also an 8 yr old girl)!

    Super Paper Mario is great because it's fun for the adults, but of course good for kids too.

    I absolutely LOVE the cake that you've made! I had never thought of doing this before, but you can bet I'm going to be doing it now! Such a perfect idea! Thanks so much for sharing!
