Homemade Iron Man Cake

Homemade Iron Man Cake

I made this Iron Man cake for my husband's 26th birthday. He's a huge fan, and we both loved the movie, so I just had to make him a cake!

I just used a rectangular cake and frosted it with chocolate frosting. I used a print-out of the Iron Man mask as a template. I laid it on the cake and poked holes through with a toothpick at all the main points of the mask to "outline" it. I then removed the template and "connected the dots" with chocolate frosting in a piping bag and colored in the areas with red, yellow, & white frosting (this took some time & patience).

My husband loved the end result! It was a very fun birthday for him!

Julie, I would like to make this cake for my son's 4th birthday. I have looked on the web for a closeup iron man mask coloring page to use as a template, but haven't found anything like what you used. Would you mind telling me where you got it?

I couldn't find the exact template of the mask I used for this design, but you can find one similar at:

Hope this helps anyone else who wants to make a similar cake!

This was fun and easy!

I did this for my son and used the mask from the Hallmark party package (can find it online at Lots of toothpicks is the trick. And I used a gel vs. icing for the black outline which was easy and more forgiving! Thanks to the girl who inspired me with the original idea!

My son is turning 4 and wants only two things for his birthday:
1. A brain with buttons which can fly and turns into a monster. He swears, he saw it at ToysRus.
2. A chocolate cake with an Ironman.

Thank you so much for sharing your cake picture. At least I can take care of the cake request :-)

Where did you get the mask template? My soon-to-be 7 year old grandson wants an Ironman cake but I can't find anything to use as the pattern. I wish I had found your picture earlier as I only have the next 5 days to make the cake.

When you don't have a Template...
by: Ann

If you can't find a Template, get yourself an Iron Man coloring book and some clear piping gel. Put a piece of wax paper over the image you want and trace it with the piping gel. Turn the picture onto the cake a gently slide your finger over the gel so that it goes onto the cake. Lift the wax paper and your image will be on the cake. Now your ready to trace it in black icing and fill it in with the colors of your choice. Have fun!!
