Batman Cake

Der ner ner ner ner ner ner ner BAT CAKE! Today is Batman Day so of course I had to make a cake in Batman’s honour.

Batman has been my favourite superhero since I was a little girl. My mum even made me a Batman cake for my 4th birthday!

To make this cake I used two basic yellow cakes stacked on top of each other and used coloured fondant for the decorations.


THE THINGS YOU WILL NEED TO GET DOWN AND NERDY

  • 2 Green’s Vanilla Cake packets
  • 4 eggs
  • 6 tbs margarine or butter
  • 1 1/3 cups milk
  • Buttercream frosting
  • Black and yellow fondant

prep

LET’S GET BAKING!

  1. Prepare one cake mix as per packet instructions
  2. Pour cake batter into a lined and greased round baking tin (mine is 18cm in diameter)
  3. Cook cake in 160oC gas oven for about 50 minutes (oven temperature and cooking time may vary depending on your type of oven)
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the second cake mix
  5. Once both cakes are completely cooled, cut the top off each cake using a sharp knife

DECORATING TIME!

  1. Spread a layer of buttercream frosting all over the top of one cake
  2. Carefully place the other cake directly on top of the frosted cake
  3. Then spread a thin layer of buttercream frosting all over the entire cake
  4. Place cake in the fridge for about 10 minutes until the frosting sets slightly
  5. Meanwhile, roll out your yellow fondant until it is about 3mm thick and is large enough to cover the entire cake
  6. Take your cake out of the fridge and carefully place yellow fondant on the cake and smooth out to the base of the cake
  7. Cut the excess fondant away from cake with a sharp knife (don’t throw the excess away, you will need this to make little squares for the lights on the buildings)

For Batman and the city skyline:

  1. Roll out your black fondant until it is about 3mm thick
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut out a batman shape (I used a template I found on Google) and a city skyline to go around the base of the cake
  3. To secure your fondant pieces use a paint brush to dab a tiny amount of egg white to the back of each piece
