Comic Con Birthday Cake!
My oldest grandson just turned six! For his birthday he wanted me to make him a cake with a combined super heros and Star Wars theme. So I took to Pinterest to fine some ideas. To my surprise I was only able to find one example that combined the two themes, although of course I was able to find a whole bunch of cakes that had either a super hero theme or a Star Wars theme. So I got the wheels turning and combined the ideas I came up with into a single cake,
It was fairly simple to make. I found the little characters at the toy store; that many of those little buggers is just a little pricey!. Of course I used the color schemes associated with each character and decorated with some fondant and candy for trim. It turned out pretty cute I think!
The sad thing is that G4 lives three hours away from me so we had to transport the cake to his birthday party. I thought it was well secured, but alas – the top layer slid off and messed up the trim and the bottom layer got a good smoosh on one side. I did my best to put it back together and clean it up as well as I could and G4 seemed to be pleased with it anyway!
The kids had lots of fun with a Darth Vader pinata, superhero capes & masks and party favors and lots of fun games! My daughter-in-law did a great job making a super exciting party! It was the very first time we’d had all five grandkids together since G5 was born so we got this fun pic!
