Retro Cakes: A Batman birthday

In the Retro Cakes section I’ll be taking a nostalgic walk down memory lane and posting pics of the best cakes from back in the day, largely courtesy of my mum.

For my brother’s 12th birthday, my mum knocked up this Batman cake as it was around the time that Tim Burton’s Batman film was on at the cinema (this was the first film in the UK with a 12 certificate, fact fans).

I’m reliably informed that the cake was a victoria sandwich topped with buttercream icing with an an oval of fondant icing forming the logo. The caped crusader’s trademark was painted on with black food colouring paste and yellow food colouring. I’m sure that Bruce Wayne would approve.
