USA Today and BamKapow are all talking about superhero cakes this week. And several of the ones linked are very cool.  Though they are pretty heavy in fondant, which is great for making stuff pretty or interesting, not as great for tasting. (“Ace of Cakes” guy is crazy about using fondant, for example.)

However, there’s an Oklahoman who I think is the best superhero cake maker on the planet.  (Several of you will already know I’m talking about my wife, Annette, so you could say I was biased… but seriously, I think these are the coolest superhero cakes ever.)
