With Father’s Day coming up in the UK on June 15th, there’s no better way to show your admiration for your Dad than to present him his very own superhero cake! We have a terrific “Superman bursting out of his shirt and tie” cake by Peru’s Tortas Late above left – a brilliant piece of animated cake art.

Of course, ladies can be superheroes too and Chef d’Oeuvre Sucre(left) have created a fabulous Wonder Woman cake (above right) for the girl that saves the day.

If time is short, one of the quickest ways to create a superhero cake is to make a cape from thinly rolled fondant to drape off the side of your cake.  The Sweet Art Shop, Japan shows how it’s done (below left) in their super cute birthday cake design, with another excellent caped crusader cake on the right (image via Pinterest).
