Batman Cake

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!!!
