I love this Super Mario wedding cake! I just spotted it on cake wrecks and had to share.. the detail is absolutely beautiful, all the little mushrooms and banana skins and flying turtle shells! Perfect! The only thing missing is Yoshi, but maybe he's around the other side, eating apples..

We just got back from our final rock climbing lesson of the beginner course. It was loads of fun, and neither of us fell off at all this time! It's amazing the improvement we've both made in just three weeks. Things that were so difficult in the first session are so much easier now. It's nice to be able to see marked changes over time, like being able to get up the wall faster, and getting up higher than before. Today we blitzed the beginner routes, and didn't do to bad on the intermediate either, so I'm happy with that! We also tried bouldering, which is less of the climbing up, and more of the climbing across - staying not far off the ground, and trying to get all around the edge. Very fun! Luckily there weren't too many people trying to climb up the wall for us to get in the way of, or we'd have had some annoyed climbers I think!
