Batman and Joker Cakes

A friend’s son is a huge fan of comic books. For his birthday he wanted Batman and Joker cakes. It was a large party so the cakes had to be big enough to feed lots of people. I went with my classic vanilla cake with fresh organic strawberry and mascarpone filling and used the idea of playing cards which made the shapes of the cakes super-easy.

The colors were a challenge given my refusal to use artificial colors. I found a natural blue at Whole Foods that was more purple than blue and ended up painting the color on the surface of the cake for Batman’s mask. Since the surface area that needed to be blue was very small I was able to pull it off. For Joker, I used fresh strawberry slivers for his lips and fresh mint leaves for the green tint of his hair. A couple of speech bubbles printed up on card stock and inserted into the cakes added a nice 3-D finishing touch!
