If you're a parent you've probably heard a passionate request for a Mickey Mouse, Hello Kitty, Minions, Super Mario, Angry Birds, Transformers, Princess or any other possible character cake at least once in your lifetime. Seeing that pleading look of anticipation in your child's eyes can have you saying, "Yes, I can make you the best superheroes cake ever, Johnny", faster than you remember you don't even know how to bake... yet!

How hard could it be to craft four edible Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles climbing out of a sewer grate with flour, eggs, and sugar? Hmmm! Perhaps, leave that idea for your second cake decorating attempt.

Gather a few ingredients, mix in a little patience, and you'll be well on your way to presenting your first Spiderman or Frozen Elsa Castle cake to a group of adoring fans. Even if your cake isn't perfect, they won't notice. Afterall, there's no mistake a little frosting can't cover.

So, go with the flow, or should I say piping gel. If you run out of supplies to make a nose for your Elmo cake, just frost him in blue and call him Cookie Monster or play a game of find Elmo's missing nose at the party. The kids will think you intentionally left off his nose.
