I’ve made cakes and cupcakes for kids, and I have to say – cupcakes are MUCH easier. However I’ve found some little boys don’t want cupcakes for their birthday, as cupcakes “are for girls”. Well we all know that’s not true, so how do we convince them to agree to cupcakes? Make them superhero cupcakes, it works every time.

There is no straight forward way to do this, the logo is always going to be tricky, however this is a great attempt by cakecentral.com
I can’t find out who made these, so if you know, please tell me. They are a great collection, and if you don’t feel confident with the sugar craft heads you could just stick to doing the piped webs.
Once again, a bit of a tricky logo, but I love the way these cupcakes have incorporated themes of the Joker from the Dark Knight movie.
