Though the party has been and gone (a little slack on the blog posting) I’ve finally done it Now its off to start organising little miss’s 2nd Birthday.
For the cake i had millions of ideas running through my head, a stacked caked in the shape of buildings, a square cake with super heroes on it, but i went with number cake as i am yet to have made one.
The Cake was easy i went lazy style and rented the number 4 tin rather than cut it out myself.
First off i made the figurines a week before so they were nice and firm.
I looked up each character and pretty much went from there, making the head first then body and adding the features as i went after the first one it got easier and faster probably because i did spiderman first and he was super fiddly. I pretty was happy how they turned out.
I cooked the cake the day before and once it had cooled, i sectioned up the cake into 4 and dyed the fondant.
Then i rolled each colour fondant out and place it on its section. I the added the features, Iron man i did a metal like armour, Spiderman i did a web with a spider in the centre, Batman i did his logo and Superman i wanted to do kryptonite but that didn’t work out and i couldn;t play around with it forever so i scraped that idea and did buildings.
As we had a Super Hero Themed Party we had to be dressed up
WONDER WOMAN COSTUME
This costume was really easy to make.
I bought a black t-shirt and printed out the
wonder woman logo and glued it to the tee,
i couldn’t find red leggings so i had to go with
some leg warmers, cute red shoes with gold dots,
for my head band i cut out a piece of cardboard paper
and painted it gold stuck a red star on it and pinned
it to my hair. Then all i had to do was make the
TuTu i think all up it cost me $20
For the Tutu
Blue tutu material 2 mtrs
A piece of red material for the cape
Elastic or Ribbion cut a little bigger than your waste
White Felt for the stars
- After cutting out your elastic roll out you tutu material and cut into 2-3 cm strips
- Now to start tying you material into knots around your elastic
- Fold one strip in half and tie around your elastic, continue until all material is used up
- You elastic should now have a tutu
- Set up a hot glue gun, while it is warming cut out 10 or so stars from your piece of felt
- Now glue randomly on to your tutu careful not to burn your finger
- I used Chase’s batman cape as a guide to cut out my no sew cape and just tied it around my neck
Gotham City Back Drop

Black card paper
Double sided sticky tape
