Proud Dad

I just have to take a moment to say that, as a gamer dad, I am a proud dad.

A while ago, I posted the video of the live-action Super Mario Bros. My oldest son has watched that video a hundred times. He loves it. Recently, he’s been loving New Super Mario Brothers and has even tried his hand at Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii. He doesn’t get far, but he loves every minute of it.

But he really made me proud when my wife asked him what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday (he’s turning four). When he said he wanted a “Mario Cake.” I couldn’t be prouder.

So, to help out the wife and set expectations unreasonably high, I used PicLens to search Flickr for some “examples.” (This one makes me mad) The quality of the cakes range from “so-so” to “no way I’m making that” (both direct quotes from the wife):

Mario Cake

Mario Star

And the one I’m voting for:

Mario Wedding Cake

My daughter, not to be outdone, asked for a Princess Peach cake. Good luck with that, mom!


  1. Hahaha Nice! That sounds like it’s going to be a fun night of gaming 😀

  2. Looking forward to seeing the cake that you and your wife make!
