Batman Cake

Today is Batman Day! To celebrate, throughout the day, I’ll be sharing four of my favorite Batman Cakes. The 3rd cake of the day is this gorgeous sculpted Batman Cake which I first shared way back in 2014.

This amazing Batman Cake was made by Fancy Cakes By Lauren. This sculpted cake features Batman’s black cowl and cape, grey batsuit, and yellow utility belt.  You can see one of Batman’s gloved hands holding the utility belt. The sculpting on this cake is wonderful. I really like how the cape and cowl have folds in them which make them look like they’re made out of completely different material than Batman’s costume.

Art Deco Batman Wedding Cake made by Little Cherry Cake Company

Today is Batman Day! To celebrate, throughout the day, I’ll be sharing four of my favorite Batman Cakes. The 2nd cake of the day is this gorgeous Art Deco Batman Wedding Cake which I first shared in 2017.

I’ve seen gorgeous Art Deco cakes, but this is the only one I’ve ever seen that features Batman.  This is an absolutely stunning cake.

This elegant Batman Wedding Cake is a three tiered cake with the Gotham cityscape on the bottom tier, the Bat-symbol in gold on the middle tier and black bats flying across the top tier. There are two black feathers on the top of the cake. There are stylized gold patterns of lines surrounding the golden Bat-symbol. The Gotham buildings are black with a few golden lights in the windows. This wonderful wedding cake was made by Little Cherry Cake Company.

Batcave Cake made by Mike's Amazing Cakes

Today is Batman Day! To celebrate, throughout the day, I’ll be sharing four of my favorite Batman Cakes. I’m beginning the party with this stunning Batcave Cake which I first shared all the way back in 2014.

This wonderful edible scaled model of the Batcave from the 1966 Batman television series was created by Mike’s Amazing Cakes. Mike McCarey’s Batman cakes are so amazing, I’ll be featuring a second one later today. Everything except the Batmobile is edible. The Batmobile is a die cast model.

This Batcave has the Batcomputer, the Batmobile, an atomic reactor, and many other devices. If you look carefully at the side of the Batcave, you will see the Batpoles. The area looks like an elevator shaft with two long poles in it. The Batpoles lead up to Wayne Manor. Compressed steam caused a platform at the bottom of the Batpoles to go back up to Wayne Manor. Half way down the Batpoles is an Instant Costume-Change Lever so Batman and Robin change into costume as they slide down into the Batcave.  I always loved that special effect in Batman ‘66.  I don’t recall them ever sliding up the Batpoles to get back into Wayne manor.

On the other side of the Batcave is the secret entrance. It is in front of the Batmobile. This Batcave Cake is an edible set designed for the client’s die cast Batmobile. The Batmobile is sitting on the giant turn-table of the Batcave. It rotated the car so it would be facing the secret entrance to the Batcave and be ready for when Batman and Robin needed it.

 

The Batmobile (not cake!)

Here is a view from the secret entrance.

Batman Wedding Cake

This stunning Batman Wedding Cake was made by Vanilica Cake Shop. I’ve been privileged to make a super hero themed wedding cake. It is really challenging because you have to find the right balance between geeky and elegant.  This cake does an amazing job at balancing both. 

I love the simplicity of the design. Because the cake isn’t too busy, your eyes are drawn to the silhouette and the balloons.  Since the cake is white, you barely even notice the actual cake. This is so much harder to do than it looks. Since you want the cake to fade into the background, your fondant has to be flawless. Any imperfection will stand out.  Since your eyes are drawn to the silhouette, it has to be perfect. I really like how the balloon strings continue on the top tier. The image of the bride in her wedding dress and Batman facing her with one arm around her is wonderful. It strikes the balance I was talking about before wonderfully.

The use of color on this cake is terrific. What’s black and white and red all over? This lovely cake. The only color on the cake is red, the color most associated with love and romance.  Notice the tiny ribbon of red around the bottom of the cake. That is the only red on the bottom layer and helps tie the two layers together.

If you can’t tell by all my gushing, I absolutely love this cake!
