When it came to decorating, he wanted the bat signal and the superman symbol. I decided to try working with fondant for this (it was the first time I have ever done it). I made the marshmallow fondant then tinted and made the symbols.
I iced the cake a light blue, added the fondant symbols and used a chocolate border with chocolate writing.
When it came to decorations, hubby couldn't find any Superman party stuff. I found some printable colouring pages online and printed out a few of the bat signal and a few Superman pages. Set up a colouring station at the kitchen table.
When hubby was out, he found lots of Batman party stuff (plates, cups, loot bags, pinata, and hanging decorations)
I bought a batman poster and we used it to pin the bat signal on Joker (whoever got their signal over Jokers nose was the winner).
In terms of drinks and snacks, I made a snack mix (cheerios, gold fish crackers, pretzel sticks, plain popcorn, special k granola and rice krispies multi-grain multi-shapes cereals) and well as strawberries, blackberries and raspberries.
We had "Joker Juice" (a mix of cranberry juice and orange juice) and "Invisible Water" to drink. When we were finished with snacks and cake, the kids headed outside for the pinata and then played on the play structure for a while.
Mr. K really seemed to enjoy himself and was glad to have his friends over to celebrate with him! Mr. J had a superhero party for his 5th birthday - have your kids had a superhero party?
