I made this for my son's 3rd birthday. I purchased a Superman-shaped cake pan and with a lot of help from my mom, we got all the frosting in the right places. My son loved it.

If you're going to make a cake like this, be sure you have a lot of time to do it right. It took a long time to get the frosting on so that it would look right.


Now that you have taken a moment to view the pictures of our Superman cakes, I'm sure you can see that you have lots of different options as to how you might ultimately create your cake for the Superman fan in your life. You may utilize Superman-shaped cake pans, a variety of cake toppers, or even use your own creative ability to draw Superman or the symbol that he stands behind on a cake. The choice is yours and should be based on your comfort level and your artistic abilities. Of course when you get ready to put frosting and icing to cake, you'll want to attempt to utilize the colors of blue, red and yellow as these are the most common colors worn by the comic book superhero. If you're feeling a bit overwhelmed about starting the creation of your birthday dessert, these instructions that follow might be of assistance:

Instructions for Making Fondant Superman Cakes

Items Needed:

  • Large Superman “S” Shield Cake Topper
  • White Cake Mix
  • Round Cake Pan
  • Blue Food Coloring
  • White Icing
  • Blue Gel Paste
  • Blue Fondant
  • Red Fondant
  • Yellow Fondant

Step 1: Create the batter and then add a bit of blue food coloring to it.

Step 2: After baking a round cake and giving it an opportunity to cool completely, transfer it to a cake tray.

Step 3: To make blue frosting, mix together some white icing with a bit of blue gel paste. Then cover the entire cake with the blue frosting.

Step 4: Roll out a big enough piece of blue fondant that will completely cover the cake.

Step 5: Place the large Superman “S” shield cake topper on the top of the cake.

Step 6: Roll out a thin piece of red fondant and make it a bit wrinkled to look like Superman’s cape. Then place this piece of fondant onto the side of your cake so it is behind the cake topper. Again, make sure it is shaped and placed to look like the cape.

Step 7: Roll out the yellow fondant and create a strip that looks like the belt that the superhero wears. Also, create a large yellow belt buckle. Place this around the bottom edge of the cake.

Step 8: Create little red squares to go around the yellow belt that look like belt loops.

Creating Superman cakes is a lot of fun. It takes a little time, few supplies, a little patience, and some creativity and you are well on your way to creating a beautiful and exciting Superman birthday cake.
