Batman Birthday Cake

I bought a pan years ago in the shape of Batman's torso. I baked the batman cake using a homemade chocolate cake batter recipe.

I made two different types of icing for the coating. One was vanilla and one chocolate. I bought a food coloring package of the typical colors and a separate package of black food coloring and a flesh colored food coloring. The black food coloring was added to the chocolate icing, since this was the simplest to change to black. I also added the black food coloring to the vanilla icing to make grey. I also used the yellow and flesh colored food colorings with the vanilla.

Using my cake decorator, I outlined the separation of colors with a straight tip. The black to the hands and face was done with a flower tip to give it a bit of a raised look. The yellow inside the belt and bat emblem, face color and grey were also done with the straight tip and then were pressed down using a knife first soaked with water. The bat was drawn, filled in and also pressed down in the same manner. The yellow background was simply spread on with a large cake spreader. Finally, the “Happy Birthday Sam” was written with the straight tip.

The Batman cakes that we have posted for your viewing pleasure display many different Batman-themed ideas. There are cakes that reflect images that are common to Gotham City, cakes that display the Batman logo, cakes that look like Batman, those that look like the car and that the superhero travels in, and those that look like images pulled from the pages of the comic books that this superhero has been displayed in.
