Batman Cake PopsIngredients:
1 box cake mix
1 (16-ounce) container ready-made frosting
1 (1-pound) bag vanilla candy coating morsels
1 (1-pound) bag dark chocolate candy coating morsels
1/2 cup Twizzler bites (these are not gluten free, if you are!)
Candy coating coloring: Yellow, Pink, Black, Blue
1 tube yellow glitter decorating gel
1 black edible ink pen
1. Bake cake according to package instructions. Allow cake to cool completely.
2. Cut the cake into quarters. Finely crumble each quarter of cake in a large bowl.
3. Add half the container of frosting. Mix into cake crumbles until well combined. Mixture should stick together to form a ball, not too crumbly, not too wet. (Add more frosting, if needed.) Reserve remaining frosting for another use.
4. Cut each Twizzler bite in half width-wise. Then cut each half on the diagonal to achieve a triangular shape with a long flat side.
5. Roll cake mixture into 2-inch oval shaped balls. Press one triangular Twizzler piece into each side the top of the ball, with the long side of the piece on the outer side of the head. These are Batman’s ears. Place on wax paper-lined baking sheet, cover and chill in fridge till firm.
6. Carefully melt vanilla candy coating in a deep bowl in microwave according to package directions. Once melted, add a tiny bit of yellow and pink candy coating coloring to make skin-tone. Start with very little. You can always add more.
7. Dip 1/4-inch of a lollipop stick into candy coating mixture; insert the stick straight into the cake ball on the opposite end from the ears. Dip the cake pop in the candy coating, and carefully tap off any excess. Work quickly, but not too forcefully or the cake ball will fall off the stick. Place end of stick in the Styrofoam block until sturdy and allow to dry. Continue with remaining balls.
8. Carefully melt dark chocolate candy coating in a deep bowl in microwave according to package directions. Stir in black candy coating coloring. Probably all of it. If needed, add blue coloring to achieve a black color.
9. Dip top half, then backside of cake pop in blue coating mixture. Allow to dry in the Styrofoam block.
Batman Inspired Banana Cupcakes

1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 stick Smart Balance Blended Butter Stick (or 1 stick of salted butter)
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas (3-4 ripe bananas)
1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place 12 cupcake wrappers into a cupcake tin.
Mix flour, baking powder, and baking soda together. Set aside.
Cream butter and sugar together until well mixed and fluffy. Add mashed bananas, eggs, and vanilla to the butter and sugar. Mix together.
Add the mixed dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and stir until combined (be careful not to overmix!).
Spoon batter into the 12 cupcake cups evenly. (The batter will be thick–that’s fine!)

Let cool and enjoy!
Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting
2 sticks Smart Balance Blended Butter Sticks (or 2 sticks unsalted butter)
4 cups powdered sugar
1 TBS vanilla
2 TBS milk
1/8 tsp cinnamon
yellow food coloring (optional)
Cream together the butter and powdered sugar. Add in vanilla and milk, mix until fluffy with an even consistency. If it’s too dry, add more milk 1 TBS at a time. If it’s too runny, add more powdered sugar.
Once it’s to your desired consistency, add in cinnamon and mix. Then add the yellow food coloring, a few drops at a time, until it’s the desired color.
Frost your cupcakes!
1 package (18.25 ounces) plain white cake mix
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 stick of butter (at room temp)
1 package black sprinkles
24 plastic batman rings
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 24 cupcake cups with white paper liners. Set the pans aside.
Place cake mix, flour, milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat 2 minutes more, scraping down the sides again if needed. Spoon or scoop 1/3 cup batter into each lined cupcake cup, filling it three quarters of the way full. (Remove the empty liners, if any.) Place the pans in the oven. Bake the cupcakes until they are lightly golden and spring back when lightly pressed with your finger, 16 to 20 minutes. Remove the pans from the oven and place them on wire racks to cool for 5 minutes. Run a dinner knife around the edges of the cupcake liners, lift the cupcakes up from the bottoms of the cups using the end of the knife, and pick them out of the cups carefully with your fingertips. Place them on a wire rack to cool for 15 minutes before frosting.
To prepare frosting, cream butter and vanilla in an electric mixer. Add one cup powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon of milk. Continue adding powdered sugar and milk when needed. You may not need to use all 4 tablespoons of milk. When ready, add several drops of yellow food coloring until you reach the desired color.
To decorate cupcakes. Place heaping teaspoon of frosting on each cupcake and swirl to spread it out with a short metal spatula. Cover the tops completely. Pour black sprinkles on to a plate and roll only the sides of the cupcake in the sprinkles. (See picture.) Garnish each cupcake with Batman ring. Store cupcakes in a cake server or under a glass dome, at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Nutella Batman Cupcakes
1 cup self-raising flour
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Mix Nutella & eggs in bowl until well incorporated.
Add in the flour and mix well.
Stir in the chocolate chips if desired.
Line a cupcake tin with 12 cupcake liners and spoon mixture evenly into each liner.
Bake in a 180 degree C oven for about 8-10 minutes.
While the cupcakes are cooling, make the desired buttercream, beating the butter so well that it’s just an off-white.
Add in the desired gel food colouring and place in fridge to cool down.
Using a teaspoon, spoon out about 2 teaspoons worth of cupcake from the middle, leaving a hole for more Nutella!
Spoon about a teaspoon worth of Nutella into the middle and cover with the cut-out top.
Place cupcakes in freezer/fridge so the Nutella sets. This will prevent it from spreading around when you spread your buttercream.
When ready, pipe/spread your buttercream & decorate as desired.
Store in a airtight box in the fridge.
Best to be consumed on the same day as decorating.
Batman Inspired Wedding Cake
1 box cake mix
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated white sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups water
2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream (use regular or light)
4 large egg whites
1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease and flour your desired pans. It’s easiest to get the cake out of the pan if you line them with parchment paper too.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together cake mix, flour, sugar and salt. Add remaining ingredients and beat with hand mixer for 2 minutes, or until well blended.
3. Pour batter into prepared pans. Be sure to fill them 3/4 to 1-inch below the top of the pan. Bake about 35 to 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Watch closely- check after 35 minutes and then every 5 minutes until they test done. Time will vary based on which pans you choose to use.
*Add 1 teaspoon of almond extract (in addition to the vanilla) if you wish to have a different flavor.
*You can also use this mix to make cupcakes. Pour into cupcake liners and bake for about 18 minutes. It will make about 36 cupcakes.
Lego Batman Cake
2 x standard cake mixes (or double our Butter Cake recipe)
4 cups Butter Cream icing
Fondant icing (for batman symbol)
yellow colouring (for icing)
black paste colouring (for batman symbol)
Bake a 9″x13″ oblong cake. When the cake has cooled, place the cake in the freezer for a couple of hours. This helps to keep the crumbs at bay when icing. Or
When the cake has cooled, cover with a thin layer of icing to keep any stray crumbs in place. Put aside for half an hour so the first layer of icing can set.
Next, apply the yellow icing to cover the entire cake.
Using black colouring, knead into the fondant icing until it’s evenly distributed. Roll the fondant out flat and place the batman template on the fondant. Using a sharp knife, cut the fondant around the batman template. It’s a good idea to use a sharp knife and wet it so it slides through the fondant icing smoothly and doesn’t ‘pucker’ the icing.
Place the batman symbol on the cake with a little dissolved sugar and water painted on the back to help it stick.
You can decorate your batman cake with a couple of a Batman Figurines if you like. This is optional.
Alternatively, you can purchase some great a Batman Cake Toppers to place on your cake.
Tip 1: Don’t forget to place your cake in the freezer for at least a couple of hours (after it has cooled from the oven). This will make it less crumbly when you ice.
Tip 2: Place a thin layer of icing on the entire cake first to keep any crumbs in place before topping with the final layer of icing.
Tip 3: I replaced the butter in the butter cream icing with vegetable shortening (or copha). This made it easier to get a more rich colour and to also be able to smooth the icing out when it becomes semi-dry.
Strawberry Jell-O Poke Pink Batman Cupcakes
1 box Cake Mix, plus eggs, water and oil
1 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) Strawberry Flavored Jell-O
1/2 cup cold water
Place 24 cupcake liners in a muffin tin. Prepare cake as directed on package. Fill liners 2/3 full and bake for 15-18 minutes. Cool completely. Take a fork or bamboo skewer (that’s what I used) and poke about 6 six holes in each cupcake. Prepare Jell-O as directed above. Place the cupcakes on a pan with an edge because some of the Jell-O will overflow. Now here’s the tricky part. Instead of spooning the Jell-O over each cupcake, I put it into a squeeze bottle and squeezed some Jell-O into each hole. You will still have some overflow, but I don’t think it was quite as bad as just pouring it from a cup would have been. Now place the cupcakes in the fridge for a few hours to chill.
1 small pkg.Vanilla instant pudding
1 cup milk (I used 2%)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
8 oz. container Cool Whip
Whisk instant vanilla pudding, milk and vanilla until smooth. Fold in Cool Whip. I placed the prepared frosting in the fridge for about 30 minutes to let it thicken up before I place it into a piping bag to frost the cupcakes.
Frost as desired. Use a Wilton 1M tip when frosting these cupcakes.
