Coolest Iron Man Birthday 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!

  1. 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?

  2. I did this for my son and used the mask from the Hallmark party package (can find it online at Walmart.com). 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!

  3. Hey…this looks great. I am going to attempt to make this cake for my son’s 3rd birthday in August. Thanks for the tips!

  4. I’m going to try to make this cake for my son’s birthday wish me luck well try to out a pic up of it when i complete it.

  5. love the cake and my soon to be 7yr old will too! His birthday is tomorrow but i cant seem to find a sight to get a template. Can someone give me some advice as where to find one?

  6. I can send you the exact coloring page image, I have it and use it. saved it on my computer. but don’t know how to give it on here. or maybe you can tell me how to post it.

  7. Hi Julie,
    You did a great job on the cake; I’m inspired to try this for my son’s 7th bday next week! Thanks.

  8. Yay thanks for the great idea!! My sons 4th birthday is coming up and he LOVES Iron Man!!! He also already has the mask so with all the great tips from everyone i am excited to try make this cake!!
    Thanks!! :)

  9. 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 :-)

  10. 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.

  11. 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!!
