I fully admit it – I’m a comic book fan. And I for one LOVE all the fun movies based on these comic books, Marvel and DC alike! BUT I’ve never been a huge batman fan, too dark I guess. BUT this time around it’s a SUPERMAN MOVIE! YAY! and while I’ve always liked the TV shows better (I think because they focus on the human side, Clark Kent and the love story – while the movies tend to make Clark a drip) in the end I’ll always enjoy Superman movies.
SO when a youtube subscriber suggested I make a Batman vs Superman cake I was like YES! BUT then brainstorming had me at a loss, I just couldn’t come up with an awesome idea, then Wednesday morning this BAM just hit me. AND I love how it turned out! I hope you enjoy it too! The outside is a pretty basic Superman cake, and then WOW a sneaky Batman surprise in the center!
This is my first carve-then-bake-again design inside cake! I was nervous, thinking the chocolate cake would be WAY overdone, and while the edges are a little on the dark side, cutting off the top and bottom of each layer helped with that and it turned out AMAAAAAZING!
I decided to stick with more classic colors but on the muted side, since dark muted colors seem to be the focus of both costumes. BUT I did use the newer logos, Superman with the new swirl and the new Batman logo/shape. What do you think of the logos? I kind of miss the bright classic colors, but let’s face it, Bright navy, red and yellow aren’t the most FLATTERING on a real person (vs comic book drawings).
So are you planning on enjoying the movie this weekend! I have some more awesome movie inspired posts for you from some of my favorite blogging friends! check it out!
