Make a Delicious Captain America Shield Cake for Your Next Party
Gather the Tools and Ingredients You Need
Making a Captain America shield cake is easier than you think. All you need are a few basic ingredients and tools. Start by gathering the following:
- 2 round cake pans
- Cake mix
- Buttercream frosting
- Food coloring
- Captain America shield template
Once you have everything ready, you can begin baking your cake.
Bake the Cake
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease the two round cake pans with butter or oil. Prepare the cake mix according to the instructions on the box. Once the cake mix is prepared, divide the batter evenly between the two pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of each cake comes out clean.
Cool and Frost the Cake
Once your cakes are finished baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool. Once they are cool to the touch, use a serrated knife to level each cake. Place the first layer of cake onto a serving plate. Place a generous layer of buttercream frosting onto the layer. Place the second layer of cake on top of the frosting. Frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining buttercream frosting.
Decorate the Cake with the Shield Template
Divide the remaining buttercream frosting into two bowls. Color one bowl with red food coloring and the other bowl with blue food coloring. Place the two colors of frosting in two separate piping bags. Cut out the Captain America shield template and place it onto the top of the cake. Then, use the two colors of frosting to pipe along the outline of the shield template, creating the red and blue stripes.
