Superhero Cake

You’ll Need

  • 2 – 8" chocolate or vanilla cakes
  • 3 cups white icing
  • 2 to 4 drops of yellow food colouring or paste
  • 2 to 4 drops of black food colouring or paste
  • 1 – 12" cake board
  • 1 zip top baggie
  • 1 miniature action figure
  • Paper banner and signs (see below)

Prep and Cook

  • Place two cups of icing in a medium mixing bowl and add the yellow food colouring. Stir to combine, ensuring the entire colour is mixed in. Set aside.
  • Place one of the cakes on a cake board and cover with icing. Then top with the second cake.
  • Ice the entire cake, ensuring even coverage. Using the back of a spoon, swirl the icing all over the cake to create a wave effect.
  • Mix the remaining one cup of icing with the black food colouring and combine well. Scoop the icing into a zip top baggie and twist the top of the bag closed. Snip off one of the corners of the bag and pipe a dotted border around the base of the cake, covering the seam between the icing and the cake board.
  • Place the action figure in the centre of the cake, and add the banner and signs.
  • Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
