Is it a bird, is it a plane, no it's Superdad!
This great Fathers Day cake was fairly simple in design but was very effective I think. I simply took the superman symbol/emblem & replaced the 'S' for superman with the word 'DAD' in honour of the lucky father.
The inspiration for this cake came from a separate order for some Fathers Day sugar cookies, in which I did 3 different dad designs one of which was the superdad cookie.
Probably the biggest obstacle I faced with this particular cake was transporting the red letters & border that I carved out of fondant onto the cake without it breaking into little bits which actually proved to be fairly tricky but I managed it in the end & I was happy with the results.
This cake was 'Midnight Delight' a lovely rich, moist dark chocolate mud cake with a decadent whipped chocolate ganache frosting, all covered in yummy homemade marshmallow fondant & finished with the superdad logo, boarder of balls & "Happy Fathers Day" message all in more marshmallow fondant. It started out as a 10" square shape before shaped & would yield approx 45 regular serves.
So don't forget that sometimes even dad needs a little spoiling & dads like yummy cake too!
