Superman reigns as one of the most popular superheroes of all time. It's only natural that many kids request the man in the famous red cape as the theme of a birthday party. Superman birthday cakes serve as the centrepiece of the dessert table at the party. You have many creative options for a Superman cake whether you make it yourself or order it from a bakery.
A Superman emblem cake is a popular option for a Superman party. The giant S inside the emblem is easily recognisable even for those who aren't huge Superman fans. An easy way to make the cake yourself is to print a copy of the emblem using a printer or copy machine. Trace the emblem onto a piece of thin cardboard to create a template. You can place the template directly on the cake and cut around it to get the basic shape. A layer of icing to add the details finishes off the cake.
An expanded version of the Superman emblem cake is to make the cake in the shape of the entire cape. The template idea works well for this cake. Simply cut a sheet cake into the shape of the cape and decorate it with icing, including a miniature Superman emblem.
Edible images are available in a number of characters including Superman. They are printed with edible ink on rice or wafer paper. The thin sheet is simply placed on top of an iced cake. It blends into the icing to create a smooth finished cake. A colourful icing border finishes off this simple cake idea. Look for edible images at baking supply stores.
Wilton offers a Superman cake pan that is shaped like the famous superhero. The shaped cake pans are popular because they are easy to bake and decorate. The Superman cake pan comes with decorating directions so you know exactly what colours to use and where to put them. The shaped cake pans are sold at baking supply and craft stores. You might also find a local store or library that rents the pans to make this a less expensive Superman cake option.
Superman toys also work well as cake toppers for your Superman party cake. Small plastic action figures of Superman are an ideal size and material for the cake. Start with a clean toy and arrange it where you like it. Other embellishments such as a birthday message, sprinkles and a decorative icing border finish off the cake.
Another option is to choose a plastic Superman cake topper or candle from a party supply store. Most stores also sell smaller versions of the plastic cake toppers for cupcakes, giving you another option for the Superman party dessert.
