This vanilla cake with Nutella buttercream was for Matt's 30th birthday. What fun, right? I'm a child of the '80's too, though I totally missed the video game phenomenon. I was too distracted with My Little Pony (Applejack!!!).
It was a fairly simple cake to construct. Anthony and I had quite a bit of gray fondant (extra from the fabulous Sea Lion cake) which was the perfect color for this Nintendo set.
The best part was making the controller---I love working on all the little detailed bits that make a cake come to life. I kept wanting to pick up the controller and start pressing all the buttons.
