  1. Dessert time, bam! First prepare your cake for the fondant by icing it with a thin layer of buttercream icing.

  2. To tint the fondant yellow, take a small ball of white fondant and knead it until soft. Use a toothpick to dot lemon yellow icing color onto the fondant. Knead until the color is evenly distributed.

  3. Roll out and smooth the yellow fondant over the cake and trim off excess with a pizza cutter or paring knife.

  4. To create the Gotham City skyline and bat symbol, roll out the black fondant until smooth. With a paring knife, freehand the bat symbol or print out a bat image to use as a pattern and cut the fondant with a paring knife to its shape.

  5. To attach to the cake, dab the black fondant pieces with water. Holy guacamole, Batman, you're almost done!

  6. Place your bat-tastic cake on a cool metallic platter and your little superheroes will eat it up!
