I have made this Batman Birthday Cake Design for both of my son's 4th Birthday's (4 years apart) and was a huge hit both times.

First I found a picture from one of my son's colour-in-books that I thought would be a good design for a Batman Birthday Cake. I then sketched the image to the size I wanted the cake to be onto some greaseproof/see-through paper.

The cake was made by using a vanilla butter cake packet mix as I find these are easier to ice than cakes that are totally home-made.

When the cake was totally cooled, I used toothpicks to secure the sketched image onto the cake and then cut out the outside edge of the design. The other outlines and details of the design were "marked" onto the cake by inserting a skewer/toothpick at close intervals along the lines of the sketched image so that the detail of the design was left on the uniced cake.

I used vanilla butter icing tinted in the appropriate colours to ice the cake. The black outline is licorice straps cut to the length needed.

Make sure you trace or photocopy an extra picture, just in case you want to make this cake again.

My homemade Batman birthday cake consisted of 12 cupcakes and a 6" cake using a vanilla cake mix.

I made buttercream icing from a C&H Sugar recipe and colored it black and yellow. I piped the cupcakes with black icing using #12 tip. I leveled the 6" cake and crumb frosted it. I then turned it upside down on the board, attaching it to the board using icing; this acts as glue and keeps the cake on the board when you ice it. Turning the cake over allows for less crumbs when frosting. I let it sit then finished icing it.

I piped a black bead border and sprinkled black sugar on the top of the cake. Three or four days prior, I made the cupcake toppers and the black bat on the cake out of MMF. I cut yellow fondant with an oval cutter and used my cricut to cut out a paper bat. I then cut out the black bat for the emblem with an exacto knife and pieced it together. I use a touch of water as glue.

It was a big hit for the birthday boy when they came to pick it up!

My youngest son is 6 years old and asked me if I could make him a Homemade Batman Birthday Cake Design! I had no idea where to start so I looked around the internet and liked the idea of Batman cupcakes and a batman figurine.

I made the Batman out of sugarpaste and it seemed to take forever especially as so iconic. I got some Batman logos and cut out the fondant shapes.

What A mess I made of the cupcakes. The icing I poured on seeped in between the sponge and casing so they spilled and went everywhere. I made another batch and made the icing stiffer, amazing how it flowed when appeared so firm. I put a batman cutout on each cupcake.

The figurine stood on the cake and kept falling over so put a cape around him and still kept falling over....GRRrrrrr. So put a dowel in the cake and he stopped acting drunk. LOL

My lad loved it and so did his friends. Hope you like it as much.
