Captain America Cake

I love surprising my friends with fun cakes! Recently when my friend's husband turned 40, she asked if I could make a cake to represent his love of comic books. The Captain America cover looked like a classic example of an old-school comic book - bold colors and clean graphics. We got a little cheeky, though, with the theme. Instead of the shield, we thought it would be cute to have him holding a huge glowing birthday cake.
It's hard to tell in the photo, but the cake, wings and figure are all applied on to the cake to give it a 3-d relief look. Besty painted the figure and gave the wings shadow and depth. Needless to say, Stephen was thrilled with the cake.
