The only thing that can make Super Mario better is combining the Mario experience with dessert. With the help of pastry decorator and baker Jami Behrends, Gamerboymedia took on the challenge of crafting a Super Mario Bros cake that recreates level one of the game, and boy is it extraordinary. In a stop-motion YouTube video, Mario can be seen jumping as the cake spins, all the while stomping goombas and eating mushrooms.


If you think it seems challenging to make a video of this caliber, you’d be right. YouTube channel Insidemani documents the challenges of creating the stop-motion vid, starting with poor Mario’s leg breaking off. The behind-the-scenes video also lets you in on fun facts like: it took eighteen different Mario super cookies to create the running sequences.

Nintendo is most definitely applauding the team behind this masterpiece.
