Made this Power Rangers Samuri Cake With Samuri Cupcakes for my husband’s little cousin Cooper (4). He wanted a power ranger cake, I didn’t even know Power Rangers still existed so I thought long and hard. I didn’t win the bid for the power ranger cake pan on eBay, so I purchased a spider man cake pan and thought really hard on how to make it work.

I googled power rangers and found pics of the NEW power rangers, amazingly enough the only thing I had trouble with transforming a Spiderman cake into a power ranger were the hands. I freehanded the pattern and used extra long straws wrapped in tinfoil to make the samuri sword.

It’s not perfect but I am really proud of it and thoroughly enjoyed making it. The cupcakes were inspired by the Japanese symbol portrayed on the Green Power Ranger Characters mask.
