Planning a superhero-themed party for your child? You're not alone. Whether your kid loves Superman or Spiderman, the Avengers or the X-Men, there's no doubt that superheroes are all the rage at the moment.
At All About Party Bags, we know that no superhero-themed party is complete without a show-stopping cake. So to help you out, we've put together this list of seven super superhero cake ideas. Enjoy!
This colourful cake looks complicated, but is actually deceptively simple to make. Just stack a square cake on top of a round one, cover them both with bright icing, then decorate to mimic the pages of your kid's favourite comic books. Personalise with your child's name for the perfect finishing touch.
For children who love Lego almost as much as they love superheroes, a Lego Superhero-themed cake provides the best of both worlds. You can craft your own edible Lego blocks and figurines by hand, or save time by using real Lego as cake decorations (just be sure to remove them before letting the kids tuck in).
Much like a superhero, the subdued exterior of this cake conceals a secret. While at first sight it appears plain, it doesn't take long to discover the explosion of colours that lies within. Add a few finishing touches using printable cake toppers and other decorations, and you have a cake fit for your own little superhero.
This simple stacked superhero cake is great because it's so versatile - you can easily change the colours and decorations to suit your child's preferences. We particularly love the crown and cape, which are the ideal finishing touches on this all-round super cake.
If your kid has too many favourite superheroes to choose between - or if you're baking a cake for several little superhero fans - then this multi-level superhero cake offers the perfect solution. Simply bake a few cakes of various sizes and shapes, and then decorate each one to match a different superhero. Top with the appropriate characters and there you have it: your very own cake-top superhero party!
Little Hulk fans will love this Hulk Smash cake, whose crowning glory is an enormous green Hulk fist crashing through the top of the cake. The secret? If you follow the link above, you'll discover the hand is actually made out of a mix of rice krispies, marshmallows, chocolate and fondant - making it delicious as well as picturesque!
If the cakes above look a little ambitious to you, don't worry: we've saved one of our easiest and quickest superhero cake ideas until last. This easy-peasy lemon-squeezy cake gains its super powers solely from its zany cake toppers, which you can buy in shops, print at home, or even make yourself from scratch. Plus, they make great party souvenirs too.
