If you grew up in the ’80s playing the original Super Mario Bros. game on the Nintendo, you will know that gobbling the right mushrooms can make plumbers turn into a giant. ThinkGeek has a new cake pan that lets you cook your own video game mushrooms, and they too will make you grow if you eat too many. Sadly, the growth will be in circumference rather than height like the power-up ‘shrooms did for Mario.
The pan makes a quartet of 3″ diameter cup cakes. As you can see the tops of the mushroom cakes and the stems are in separate areas of the cake pan, to help ensure they come out perfectly. Whether you end up with 1up mushrooms or power-up mushrooms is all in the frosting your choose.
If baking your own Mario mushrooms isn’t enough for you, how about some LEGO brownies?
The LEGO brownie pan makes four small 2″ x 2″ cakes. Sadly, the LEGO brownies lack indentions on the bottom so you can’t really build with these treats.
