Batman Birthday

This is a batman cake I did for my son's 4th birthday. Both his 2nd and 3rd birthdays were of Thomas the Train so I was a bit unprepared when he announced he wanted Batman! I looked around and found a few ideas. I put them together and came up with my own Batman cake. He said it was perfect except it was supposed to be blue and black not yellow and black. Go figure!

It is chocolate cake with yellow buttercream icing. All of the black is fondant. I did the batman symbol and the circle freehand. The buildings I used various cookie cutters.

I used royal icing to pipe the symbol on the fondant for the cupcakes. There was no way I was going to hand cut 24 of those things! I learned lots and realized after I had them all done an easier way to do it that would have made them look better and take less time. Oh well, you live and learn!

On some of the cupcake toppers instead of putting the batman symbol I put the letters of my son's name and the number 4 since he was turning 4. He thought that was cool!
