Chocolate Oreo Piranha Plants

Chocolate Oreo Piranha Plants

This one is for all those Super Mario fans like myself. Though I did get some comments about them being from the Little Shop of Horrors, these are the Piranhas from Super Mario series. They are packed with sugar power and are ready to eat anything that approaches them…or to be eaten. 😉

If you are following me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen the picture of my first piranha plant dessert made from a macaron and a cake pop. That was a fun rainy day baking project I did 2 years ago.

The first appearance of Piranhas was in Super Mario Bros, 1985 – which happens to be my year of birth – perhaps that’s why I love these triffid-like plants so much!

I also own these cute piranha plant earnings my husband got for me a few years back, aren’t they just adorable?Chocolate Oreo Piranha Plants

Now back to what we got here! The warp pipe is a chocolate cupcake baked in ice cream cone, covered in green fondant and topped with Oreo crumbs. The plant is a no-bake Oreo cake pop covered in red and white fondant. Inner mouth is made from heart shaped pink sugar sprinkles and green stem and leaves are green fondant.
