The World's Finest - Superman and Batman Cakes
I wanted to make them each a superhero cake but they don't like fondant or sugary frosting so I used whipped cream and sugar sheets. Here's how I made them:
Then I put whipped cream all around the top and sides.
But they still needed some embellishments: licorice and candy.
1) Make sure you measure the top of your cake against the emblems you're going to put on top. I made mine too big and had to cut them down to size so they would fit properly.
2) Count out your candies so you are sure you have the proper count of black to red...I had to skimp and scrimp to cover the edges.
3) Don't cook your cakes until the tester comes out clean - they are over done if the toothpick comes out clean. Leave them a little damp, they continue to cook for a few minutes after you take them out of the over and there is nothing worse than dry cake. (I didn't make this mistake - but it's easy to do).
In the end, I thought they turned out cute...even if they are a little kidish for a 29 and 25 year old ;D
