These cupcakes are actually topped with powdered sugar, with stencils used to make the faces. As if these kitties didn't look sweet enough already.
There are a million Mario cupcakes out there and pretty much all of them are adorable. I particularly like these because of how simple they are. The shapes are basic and effective, the fondant is smooth and not too thick, and Mario's mustache is as full as ever.
I like the age-old motif of hearts and keys. It never goes out of style and always seems so genuine and proper. I also like gags involving swallowing a key like in "Arrested Development" so with these cupcakes I'm all set.
