Super Mario Mushroom Pumpkin

Confusing title? Absolutely, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles. This here is a pumpkin, with the Super Mario Brothers 1UP mushroom carved out and an LED planted in the center. It looks sweet as hell, but even sweeter is that pumpkin they had to scoop out beforehand. Mmmm, pumpkin. Link
