Today I’m sharing a Super Heroes Cake & Cake Pops!! This cake was fun to do… I absolutely loved doing the cartoon-y bubbles and stars!!
Here are some more pics and details:
First, the characters on top were toys. I ordered them here on Amazon: Funko Pop Marvel Bobbleheads. Characters are not my strong suit and personally, I love it that kids can keep (and play with) toppers from their cake vs. them being hand-made and then discarded. Not that I don’t adore a sculpted topper… it just makes me sad to think of them not being used again!
Anywho… I cut the yellow “POW” bubble out by hand, then used a smooshed flower cutter to make the cloud shape. For Jake’s name, I used Fox Run Alphabet Letter cutters, then a food marker to give it dimension and character!
This cake was vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, then covered and decorated mostly with . The black and red decorations were Satin Ice Fondant. I used these mini colors to do the tiny stars and squares in/around the buildings.
Here are a few other close-ups…
To go with the cake – I made Super Hero Cake Pops:
I used molds from Lollicakes by Ella for the Batman, Superman and Spiderman symbols. I’m gonna be honest and say… those things were NOT the easiest things to master. I had a hard time getting them neat and clean, but I’m sure with more practice, I could figure them out! Here are some close-ups:
And then there were the Hulk cake pops…

So, I think that’s it!! I’m busy, busy working on orders for the weekend including a wedding & groom’s cake and lots of Christmas cupcakes! I’m gonna get to it now
