I always allow my kids to choose their birthday cake theme (nothing too definite, I'm not brilliant!), and have suddenly come up against a request for a "Super Mario or Pokemon" cake.  Sadly, I've never played Super Mario, or seen Pokemon (terrible, I know - now if it was LOTR, or Marvel comics, or Miyazaki, I'm your geek, but...) so I'm a bit out on a limb here - any ideas?  Nothing too complicated please!  

Help!

[edit: Just for ref, here are some of the cakes I've done in the past.  I'm no expert, but I'm not a complete klutz, either!

LOTR request became the One Ring (yes, the runes are accurate!)
Harry Potter request became Fawkes the Phoenix
Doctor Who request became a TARDIS]
and so on

I would ask them for a list of their favorite characters since both super mario and pokemon are heavily character based. That will help narrow down what to make.

A shroom cake would be easy. A green top mean "1-up" aka extra life. A red top mushroom makes the character bigger.

or maybe a pokeball cake: http://images.google.com/images?um=1&hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&tbs=isch%3A1&sa=1&q=pokeball+cake&aq=f&aqi=g1&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&start=0&social=false

OK, she loves Charmander (Pokemon), so here goes o_O
His tail's on fire anyway, so I'm sure I could work that in, candle-wise
