It was due to be my niece’s daughter’s birthday and she is 9 years old. I was asked to bake a cake for her birthday.

I had to make the Batman first so it would dry out. I modeled the top half of the body using a dark grey color and made the arms, then using a black icing I had colored earlier, I made the gloves and the neck. Now using a pink I made the head. I made it slightly smaller because I needed to add another layer of icing in black for the mask. When I made the mask I then made the ears to the mask.

I then made a number 9 in pink icing and set this aside to dry out. I then cut out stars in pink and lilac for the decoration. I now needed to cut out and shape the triangle pieces to make it look like Batman had burst through the cake and I set these aside to dry out too.

I covered the cake board in lilac icing and cut out the wording in pink the wording was then set aside. I baked a vanilla sponge cake and filled with jam and butter cream. When it had cooled I then covered in butter cream and placed in the freezer to chill. I then covered in white roll out icing and set aside to harden for a few hours. I then fixed a black ribbon around the base of the cake and made a small black bow and attached this to the ribbon.

I then drew on the Batman logo to the chest of the Batman and attached him to the cake using royal icing and attached the triangle pieces of icing to the cake. I attached the stars to the cake using a little royal icing and then attached the number 9 to the front of the cake and attached the wording to the cake board to finish off the cake. Finally a little sprinkling of glitter.

She loved it!
