I baked a chocolate cake in a rectangle tin then carved it into an oval, and covered with yellow buttercream.
I made a yellow fondant oval and placed on top. I printed out the Batman symbol and made black fondant (my advice, buy black fondant as coloring is a mission)! I just cut around the printed symbol and placed on top.
Then cupcakes were more fiddly, very time consuming! The Superman badges I did free hand, made the base then rolled red fondant into a sausage shape and formed it into an S. The Batman faces and bats I drew onto cardboard then placed onto fondant and cut around it
The words I cut out the base shapes then rolled out fondant into thin sausages, and shaped out words. I did buy the Spiderman rings as the gel writing icing I tried to use just ended up looking silly LOL.
I made this cake for a lady from work. It was her son's 5th birthday and when she came to pick it up, she was soooo excited she almost cried. The kids loved it and the birthday boy was very impressed! YAY!
This Batman Birthday Cake & Cupcakes was made for one of my student's 5th birthday celebration. The top cake is a two layer marble (vanilla & chocolate) cake made with a round 6in mold. I covered it with homemade buttercream frosting (shortening, butter and confectioners sugar) colored with yellow food coloring.
The bottom edge of the cake is covered in black buttercream frosting stars. For the Batman logo on top I colored store-bought fondant (which is pretty easy to work with) black, printed out the logo and cut it using a toothpick to simulate the bat signal. The letters and number were made with cookie cutters.
The matching cupcakes are vanilla & chocolate. To decorate them I piped black buttercream frosting and yellow stars to the vanilla cupcakes and yellow buttercream frosting and black stars to the chocolate cupcakes.
All decorating took about 1 1/2 hours including time for cutting the designs done in fondant.

I made this homemade Batman cake for my grandson, Luke for his 3rd birthday. The buildings are made of pineapple pound cakes decorated with graham crackers for windows and the door. The sidewalk is made of chocolate cheerios. I took a small drinking cup and placed a flashlight in the bottom with M&M's to hold it in place for the batman logo. He LOVED it!
I made a stencil of this cake from a picture off the internet and then piped in the black outline after dusting the stencil with powdered sugar. After the outline was done I filled in the colors and lastly the background.
