I have made this Batman Birthday Cake Design for both of my son’s 4th Birthday’s (4 years apart) and was a huge hit both times.
First I found a picture from one of my son’s colour-in-books that I thought would be a good design for a Batman Birthday Cake. I then sketched the image to the size I wanted the cake to be onto some greaseproof/see-through paper.
The cake was made by using a vanilla butter cake packet mix as I find these are easier to ice than cakes that are totally home-made.
When the cake was totally cooled, I used toothpicks to secure the sketched image onto the cake and then cut out the outside edge of the design. The other outlines and details of the design were “marked” onto the cake by inserting a skewer/toothpick at close intervals along the lines of the sketched image so that the detail of the design was left on the uniced cake.
I used vanilla butter icing tinted in the appropriate colours to ice the cake. The black outline is licorice straps cut to the length needed.
Make sure you trace or photocopy an extra picture, just in case you want to make this cake again.
