If you are having a birthday party for a little boy, and want to make the cake special, one great option is through super hero cake toppers. Kids love to use their imagination, and super heroes seem to be just up every little boy’s alley. They enjoy the idea of having super powers, and using them for good. Many little boys enjoy dressing up, and fighting off “bad guys”. So, why not incorporate that idea into your birthday cake? The following are a few great ideas for super hero birthday cake toppers.
1. The Toothpick Topper. Sometimes birthday parties for kids can be really messy, and one of the best ways to cut out some of the mess and cleanup after is to make cupcakes instead of a big birthday cake. No waiting, no cutting, no paper goods, etc. But, this can cause a bit of a dilemma for the person who wants a cool cake topper. When you have cupcakes, one of the greatest cake toppers is to use toothpicks to insert a picture. So, print out thumbnail size pictures of your child’s favorite super hero, or get stickers, and stick them on small pieces of paper, that you fold, and put over a toothpick to create a super hero “flag” for the top of an iced cupcake.
2. The action figure. One great cake topper that can also double as a gift, is an actual action figure. Find an action figure of their favorite super hero, and use icing to create a scene, like a city, or a forest, and then use the icing to stick the action figure to the top of the cake. It will look awesome, and get the attention of everyone at the party, and your child will have a fun toy as well. It also saves you money because the cake topper plays double duty! All good things!
3. Party favors. Another great idea for the super hero birthday cake toppers is to use your party favors as the cake toppers. Most party supply stores have things like whistles, rings, tops, and other small trinket type favors that will have pictures of the super heroes on them. These make fun favors to send home with the party guests, but they too can play double duty and become the cake topper for the cake, or cupcakes, as mentioned above. Your kid will get a kick out of finding a “prize” atop their cake, and you will love how great it makes your cake look.
Of course, another option for super hero birthday cake toppers is to go online and buy ones specifically made as cake toppers. You can find everything from web blasters that actually shoot out frosting, to the Marvel super hero squirter cake toppers. So, whether you want to make something on your own, repurpose something you may be buying anyway, or just buy something pre-made, these ideas will give you a great starting point.
