Batman Minion Cake (Daughter's 14th)
My daughter asked for a minion cake;only dressed as batman. He's made from two square madeira cakes, halved and sandwiched together with jam and buttercream, with the risen middle part of the cake ontop for his domed head. I managed to colour the white roll out icing all the colours needed, although the black took so much colour paste I sent hubby out to buy ready coloured for the light saber. The brown was tricky because the ratio was difficult to get right, so after a quick google I used cocoa powder (well, drinking chocolate because I'd used the last of the cocoa powder,oops) which worked well. He took two days to make but I'm pleased he turned out so cute.
