I made this Homemade Batman Birthday Cake Design for my son's 5th birthday. I liked the idea of Batman being signaled over Gotham City and created the design myself. I used a 12"x18" pan for the base and 2 box mixes. The Bat Symbol was made with a small oval pan. I iced the base and oval cakes with buttercream icing colored with gel coloring. I used a dark blue for a night scene.
All other decorations were made with a homemade marshmallow fondant. This was the first time I had worked with fondant of any kind and it was pretty easy to work with. I freehanded the buildings using a pizza cutter to cut the fondant. For the Batman symbol I printed an image online, cut it out, layed it over the fondant and used a sharp knife to cut around it. I used fondant cutters for the lettering and the stars and borrowed a batman figure from my son's toys.
The kids loved the design and everyone loves the buttercream icing!
I made this Batman Birthday Cake for my son's fourth birthday, with a Batman theme. I used two circle cake pans, one larger than the other, and stacked them using buttercream frosting. I frosted the entire cake with buttercream, and then rolled out and placed the fondant on top. (I dyed the fondant using blue and black). I cut out a Batman logo with fondant, and placed it on the cake with buttercream. I then cut out city building with the fondant, and placed them the same way.
I used Batman and Joker toys from McDonalds, and a batmobile car from there too. (They were luckily at McDonalds that very week! Perfect sizes!) I used a circular cake board with tissue paper on top, and I piped the words onto the board. The cupcakes are just done with buttercream, and I just swirled blue and black onto them.
Here is a Batman Birthday Cake Design I made for my nephew's 4th birthday. I used a bat template I found online to carve the logo out of fondant. I used oval shaped cake pans (both were a single layer of cake), and covered the bottom of the cake in yellow marshmallow fondant and the top in black marshmallow fondant. I then traced and carved out an oval out of yellow fondant and placed the black bat cutout on top to make the batman logo.
The complete logo was then placed on the top of cake and smoothed out. I added a border around both layers with black gel (although I wish I would have used actual frosting for the border).
It was a really easy cake to make, and was a really big hit!
My son wanted a Batman theme. I thought this was easy enough. I just used a box cake mix to make 2 cake rounds and stacked. I used concentrate yellow food coloring first - way too gold. Started over with new icing and dropped in the liquid drops and that yellow came out great!
I used black concentrate food coloring to tint white icing (and it sparkled). Then traced bat cutout and piped and filled in the logo. Lastly I sprinkled yellow sugar over the cake very lightly.
This homemade Batman birthday cake is easy and delicious with homemade Chocolate Chip Buttercream filling!
My son has asked me for a while now to make him a lego Batman Birthday Cake for his 5th birthday so I gave it a try. I couldn't find a Lego Batman anywhere and I really wanted Lego Batman to be on top of the cake so I made one out of fondant.
The cake is an 8 inch on bottom and the top was carved pieces from an 8 inch and is covered in fondant. I also used brick impression for the sides of the cakes.
