Superhero Birthday Cake
by Kerri Garland
(Manassas, VA, USA)
This Superhero cake was for a five year old little boy's birthday party. The head of the cake is made from rice krispy treats iced in buttercream and the entire cake got an outer layer of homemade marshmallow fondant airbrushed in red sheen. There are approximately five dowels in the cake tier holding up the krispy treats head.
The cake itself is half chocolate fudge and half vanilla with vanilla buttercream icing. The pan sizes used were 10 inches for the chest area, and 8 inches for the shoulders. When it was all put together it was nearly two feet tall.
All of the decorative detail is made from fondant and the eyes were hand painted with a gold/silver sheen luster dust. The webbing was made using fondant and an extruder to get the uniform lines and simply attached with water; and the spider decal on the chest was hand cut from using an exacto knife.
All-together the cake took around ten to fifteen work hours to complete. I hope you enjoy it!
