One thing I love about portal is how simple and iconic it's major components are. The portals themselves are so versatile!
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 have never played video games much, though I have spent many hundreds of hours watching other people play. When I was about 7 my friend Chanelle was obsessed with Zelda. I would go over to her house and eat pudding roll-ups and watch her play while her grandma watched the home shopping network. So basically, these cookies make me think of pudding roll-ups.
We've seen our fair share of Mario cakes over the years here, but I've never seen one with cookies as characters and blocks. I love the extra dimension it adds to the overall theme. The surprise rainbow layers inside is just, well, you know...
