Alexander asked for a Batman cake and one that had blue icing and is white. He is a child that really doesn’t like chocolate so white means Vanilla cake.
Yes, my little boy really doesn’t like chocolate and would rather have vanilla cake and gummy sweets.
So vanilla and a blue iced cake was made, plus making it Batman themed.
As I don’t have a mixer I got a new handheld Sunbeam MixMaster , in the video above I unboxed the new Sunbeam Mixmaster and used it for the first time. I must admit that this was not what I thought I was getting for Christmas but it has come in handy. I have baked cakes, made pancakes and more!
The Sunbeam Mixmaster looks like the one my mum had in the 70’s and I love the fact that it is super easy to use as you can easily hold the mixer and stop and start it when needed.
To make the cake I needed:
- 2 vanilla cake mixes
- 4 eggs – 2 for each cake mix
- 160ml of milk
- 3 Tablespoons of oil (I used olive oil)
- I also added some lemon juice into each cake mix
- Soft icing sugar
- Butter for the icing – I just add a few lumps and then add more icing
- Blue food dye
Before I made the cake I created the decorations, this meant that when everything was ready I could instantly add everything to the iced cake.
- Dark chocolate for the buildings
- Silver candy balls
- Coloured candy for the building’s windows
- I used 2 silicone pot holders for window shapes
- Superhero candles
- Edible Batman picture for the centre of the cake
I made it super simple and purchased some vanilla cake mix. As I needed it to be a taller cake for the Gotham buildings.
Each cake was mixed separately, then added to a tin to be baked in the oven.
I hope this inspires you for your next birthday party. Maybe you too could make your own take on a batman cake.
