I’ll never forget my 5 year old nephew, Shiv’s reaction to this Batman Cake that I made for him last summer. He saw the cake and looked at me with his big brown eyes and said, ” This is exactly the cake that I had thought of making for my birthday in my house in Delhi!!”
So cute – oh boy, I sure am thrilled that I got it right!!!
One 9X13 rectangular sheet cake (made from your favorite recipe)
3 cups of white frosting (made from your favorite recipe)
Batman themed confetti (available at any party store)
A few rectangular pieces of thick cardboard or plastic sheets in varied sizes to make buildings (as shown in picture)
A Batman candle and a 5 candle
A Batman on a motorbike small plastic toy ( you can use anything you have)
Some yellow tissue paper
2 thin wooden skewers
- Take one of the oval shaped batman confetti pieces and stick two of the skewers to its back as shown.
- Cover the skewer part with yellow tissue paper so that it looks like a beam of light with the Bat signal (placed behind the building).
- Set aside till glue is dry and ready to be used.
- Color the rectangular pieces in black and yellow – to make it look like buildings with windows and let it dry out.
- Divide the frosting into three colors – grey, yellow and black.
- Frost the rectangular sheet cake with the grey frosting.
- Place the little bat signal confetti pieces in the front of the cake.
- Place 3 buildings in the center, towards the back of the cake.
- Stick the “beam of light with the Bat signal” at an angle behind the rightmost building.
- Using the black and yellow frosting, create a road on the left hand side of the cake.
- Place the Batman on the motorbike on the road.
- Place the Batman and 5 candles on the right hand side of the cake.
- Using any wilton tip, make ovals with the yellow frosting all over the cake base and cake.
