How To Make a Batman Birthday Cake


When I asked my nephew what sort of cake he wanted for his 3rd birthday he told me wanted a Batman Cake. How on earth was I going to make a Batman Cake? After thinking and searching images on Google I came up with a design and I thought I would share it with all of you!

Here is how I did it:

  1. Bake 2 cakes – I used this Gluten Free Butter Cake recipe and added yellow food colouring gel to the mixture.
  2. Make up a small amount of icing and spread on the top of one cake and join the 2 cakes together.
  3. Using ready to roll fondant icing, add some blue food colouring gel and knead until the colour is even, adding extra food colouring as required.
  4. Roll out the food colouring into a circle large enough to cover the top and sides of the cake.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with black and yellow food colouring gels to make buildings and a Batman logo.
  6. Decorate with some Batman Lego Duplo.

My nephew was very impressed with his Batman Cake.

I think it turned out quite well for my first time working with fondant icing. What do you think?
