Superdad Fathers Day Cake

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!


  1. Thank you very much. I checked out your bog, very nice, keep on baking!

  2. Hi, I just wanted you to know that someone in my area has uploaded a picture of this cake, and is claiming that they've made it. Using it for ad purposes to make money from making cakes.

  3. Thank you so much for letting me know, I am afraid I have had a number of my photos stolen by other cake makers. I have contacted them directly, thanks again.
