This is our Homemade Batmobile Birthday Cake which we made for our Batman mad son Charlie for his 3rd birthday.

I have attached the template we made using an aerial view of the 1989 classic Batmobile. This will make your life a lot easier if you want to make this cake.

We made two layers of chocolate cake and cut them both to the shape of the template. (See Photo). Then filled between the layers and covered the cake in chocolate butter icing as you would with most cakes. (See photo)

Then we used black chocolate flavoured ready to roll icing and covered the cake. After that it was a case of using icing tools to create the shape. The wings are seperate pieces of icing and the metallic turbine/grills/petrol cap are black icing sprayed with edible silver spray. The tyres, air vents and windscreen were painted with edible black airbrush colouring to give them extra shine.

The cake went down a treat and tasted really nice as well. I hope you have a go at doing this cake it was hilarious fun making it. This was our first attempt at a birthday cake and there is no way we are ever buying one again, creating one is much more enjoyable.

Chocolate flavour black sugarpaste?
by: Anonymous

That really is a great cake and just what I'm looking for - thank you for sharing. : )
Could I just ask with the icing whether you mean that you bought chocolate flavored brown sugarpaste and then colored that black, or if you actually found a black icing that was already chocolate flavored? Thanks.
Black icing usually tastes horrid so I've been really worried about how the cake will taste!

Coolest Batman Car Cake 22

My 4yr old grandson is mad about Batman and asked if I would make him a Batman Car cake just like his Toy car. Well it was going to be a job and a half but I managed it.

I made a Madeira cake and cut it the shape of the car. I managed to buy some flat sheets of black licorice and stuck it on the cake with butter icing, some chocolate mint creams for the wheels along with silver cashews and icing made up the Mag wheels.

Also the decoration on the front and sides of car were white royal icing and some colored blue cut into shape and stuck on with butter icing.
I didn't know if the children would like to eat the car so I made a chocolate cake and decorated it to look like the Bat sign in the sky. Yellow butter icing for back ground and black licorice for the Bat.

Actually the children ate all the Bat Car first and then the Chocolate Cake, so it all went very well.

Coolest Gotham City Cake 53

Homemade Gotham City Cake

Homemade Gotham City Cake

My son wanted a Batman party. We considered making the bat signal as our cake but it seemed too simple so we went with a Gotham City Cake. As always, I got my inspiration through surfing the web.

The bottom cake is a layered strawberry/vanilla with strawberry filling and the top tier is pure chocolate. I frosted the cake and then sprayed it blue (I'd recommend tinting the frosting blue and then spraying it to get a more layered look). The "city" is marshmallow fondant. I colored some black and cut out buildings and then blended some white in with the black to get a swirl/granite look. I used the #3 tip to pipe out small windows on the buildings. The bat signal is yellow fondant.

My 5 year-old loved the cake but was disappointed that Batman and Joker weren't fondant (I'm not that talented!) but in the end he was pleased because he could play with the figures.

Fun cake and not too challenging. I'd recommend it even for the beginner.
