Happy Birthday Superman!!!

Superman 207

February 29th is Superman’s birthday! So, I thought it would be great to celebrate it with some great Superman cakes.

The story I’ve heard about Superman’s birthday is that a kid wrote a letter to DC Comics and asked why Superman never seemed to get any older.  The editor thought about it and came up with a cute response.  Superman’s birthday is February 29th.  So while you and I get a year older every year, Superman only gets a year older every four years.  I don’t know if the story is true, but the idea became popular and for years Superman’s birthday has been February 29th. 

Since Clark Kent and Superman had to have different birthdates, Clark Kent’s birthday is June 18th.  Why that date? June 18th is the birthday of Clayton “Bud” Collyer. Bud was Superman for a whole generation of kids.  He played Superman and Clark Kent on the wonderful Old Time Radio show – The Adventures of Superman.  

What’s a birthday without cake?
