Avengers tiered cake
The Violet Cake Shop created this extraordinary Avengers three-tiered cake for a heroic 10 year old birthday celebration! Each tier reflects characters who make up the Avengers team, starting with the bottom square layer where discernible details and elements of Thor’s and Captain America’s suits are transferred to the cake in fondant form.
The second layer is transformed into the Hulk’s textured appearance with added personalization. Finally, the top tier is accentuated with Iron Man’s molded mask, which the cake artist made to light up behind the wafer paper eyes, and the piece is topped off with the flawless hand-cut Avengers’ emblem.

Similar to the above design, this fantastic Avengers cake by Lori’s Sweet Cakes also exhibits different elements of the characters, but offers alternative components that can be incorporated to reflect the various superheroes on a smaller scale. The single tier cake is covered in fondant, textured, then further decorated to resemble a cracked surface as the Hulk’s fist busts through! Additional items, such as Iron Man’s mask, Captain America’s shield and Thor’s hammer are perfectly molded and placed around the cake. Incorporating the cake board is key, as it brings the entire presentation together.
