Celebrating The 4th of July With Captain America

Captain America Cake

Happy 4th of July!

This awesome Captain America cake was made by Ana Brum Biscuit Designer.  Ana has come up with a really nice three tier super hero cake design.  The bottom layer is the hero in silhouette, the middle layer is a close-up on the hero’s face with the city they’re protecting around them, and the top layer is a symbol associated with our hero.  Ana has done three of different super hero cakes with this great design. I’ll be featuring them over the next few weeks.

I really like the way Ana alternated between red and blue tiers. While I think the shield would have looked fine against a dark blue background, I think the red works so much better as a background for the silhouettes. The center image of Cap is absolutely wonderful and I like the shield on the top layer. I made a bunch of Captain America shields for a wedding cake, so I know it is harder to make then it looks.
