Nintendo DS/Pikachu Cake - My challenge in a different way

I had an order for a Nintendo DS/Pikachu Strawberry Cake for Sunday for a 6 year old boy.  I didn't think it was going to be a huge challenge.  After all, the shape of the DS is not hard to do, and my challenge was only Pikachu.

I also researched and checked to make sure I could leave the fondant covered cake in the fridge.  I see conflicting comments online so I tested out myself and I have to say it works!!! The trick?  You HAVE to leave the cake uncovered so you have to make sure your fridge is smell free.

Having tackled that, I knew I could use fresh strawberries as a filling...yeay!!!!  I didn't use stabilized whipped cream this time since I haven't tested it out yet...that is my next experiment! ^_^

As to my challenge?  My 3 year old son got really sick on the weekend and was cracky beyond belief.  So it was a challenge to focus on being creative while hearing him cry while my husband was attending to him.

The end result is very nice I think.  The party cake was a success.  Now I am just hoping my son gets better soon too!!!
