Iron Cake

It was the boyfriend’s Birthday yesterday.  I had made the mistake of asking what design he’d most like to see immortalized atop sponge.  Normally I just surprise him and considering how difficult his choice turned out to be, I will go back to choosing for myself next year.  So I present to you all, my latest creation, an Iron Man cake.

 

I wish now that I had included something in this pic to give a sense of scale.  As I did not, you will have to take my word for it.  This baby measures up at just over 30 cm square.

Sadly not my best cake ever, but it does look somewhat like the Golden Avenger, and I assure you it does taste great.  How I managed to make ol’ Shell Head look so overwhelmingly sad, I cannot say.  Those white dots?  Well, yeah, it is harder than I thought to make your icing look like outer space.  LOL!

 Maybe I overthought this one.  In an attempt to be more organized about the whole cake decorating process I made up templates and colour references galore.  I did help I suppose.  This is the first time I have been on time with one of his cakes.  Ordinarily I am either up all night the day before or still elbow deep in icing halfway through the party.

For next year I am thinking maybe I’ll do Hawkgirl or an Ant Man.  Dunno.

    That’s an awesome cake! I knew exactly who it was right away. ^_^
    You’ve inspired me to make a cool cake for my boyfriend’s birthday this year.

  3. Great cake! I’m lucky in that my man doesn’t eat cake (gasp!) even on his birthday, so he’s happy with some fruit salad. However, that means I do have to get out the melonballer.

  4. excellent cake! when do we get to see one like that on a weds? perhaps one of super frogger?

  5. OK, IhateToast, what’s a super frogger? Shouldn’t I be cooking up something more, um, knitterly if it is for a Wednesday? Heh, I am just imagining a drop spindle shaped cake, overloaded with yarn though. Just like I like ’em.

  7. He is coloured mazipan, rolled out thin then cut to shape.
