Even though I swore long ago that I’d make my own kids’ birthday cakes, I still like to take the easy way out. Remember the easy Buzz Lightyear birthday cake that I made for Elise’s 3rd Toy Story birthday? Well, made it easy on myself for Elise’s super hero birthday cake too by making super hero cake toppers and putting them into the cake.
Elise wanted “all of the super heroes” on her birthday cake so I thought printable super hero cake toppers would be the way to go. I made a “city” (the Chicago skyline) with personalized bat signal, plus a “4” signs and stars. Then I added free super hero illustrations, and I’d like to thank sleepycomics and stewartisme and OWC478 at deviant art for sharing their Wonder Woman, Superman and Spider-Man graphics.
I dyed the cake layers like all the cool kids do these days which made slicing into it extra fun. I made one layer blue, one layer red, and one layer yellow.
It was an easy and fun DIY super hero birthday cake to make, and it tasted great. I feel heroic!
My super girl loved her super hero birthday cake. Happy 4th birthday, Super Elise!

How to make an easy super hero birthday cake for a super hero birthday party:
Start by baking and decorating a simple cake. If you know me, you know that I’m no blue-ribbon baker. Fortunately, I have a friend who is a professional baker and she shares her recipes and tips for free at her website, Cakegirls. I made mine the night before using the same Cakegirls cake and frosting recipes that I used last year on Elise’s Buzz Lightyear birthday cake for her Toy Story birthday please visit that post for detailed cake baking steps. Then to cover up my icing mistakes, I put red gumdrops around the bottom that I bought at Party City.
Print out my super hero cake toppers and glue them onto lollipop sticks (you will have fronts and backs with the lollipop stick sandwiched in the middle) — if you would like the cake toppers personalized, then please contact me.
Stick the free super hero cake toppers into the birthday cake. It’s that easy!
