Easy Batman Cake

Lately (ever since my broken wrist) I’ve been obsessed with “simple” and “easy” projects.  I did a Pinterest search for “simple birthday cakes” and some of those were not simple – I mean, who does fondant?!  I saw a fun cake from a blog called “All Boy Stuff ” where she just went with a batman logo in chocolate icing over a yellow icing background. I figured I can handle that – an easy Batman Cake!

So I baked my cakes in circle pans, made a basic batch of buttercream frosting and but a bunch of yellow food colouring in it. I iced it (skipped the sides, because I was going for simple, right?). Then I traced the logo from a t-shirt. I cut out the shape and traced it on the icing with a toothpick.

I added  some cocoa powder to the leftover yellow icing, and it darkened very nicely into a chocolate colour.  I filled in the shape using the “dam and flood” method. First you outline it by piping icing around the outside.  Then you squeeze a bunch of icing throughout the inside and smooth it out with a knife – it gives it such a neat finish.

So here it is!

And I’m thinking I can use this for all kinds of superhero logos! A simple round cake, and print out the logo to trace! Superman, Green Lantern, etc.!

I live in Bowmanville, and am a mom to four young boys - it can get a little loud in my house. I am a Christian, a part-time French teacher, a piano teacher and former homeschooler. I love finding the best deals, which will come in handy when our boys become hungry teenagers! We just moved to a house with more outdoor space, and I'm still getting used to life in the country (a walk around the block is a lot longer here!).


  1. Great idea!! The possibilities are endless. My kids are always wanting cakes that are outside of my decorating ability. Thanks for the idea.

  2. I did fondant. Once, I think. You are correct to avoid it! This cake is absolutely wonderful, and I would guess that nearly every boy would love it and feel very special to have it made for him!! Great work!

  3. That is one cool decoration. I admire anyone who can make art with their hands. My thoughts never translate to my hands the way I would want them to. It’s a good idea for people who make cases for children.
