Superman cupcakes are a great way to celebrate the next big super hero movie, your child's birthday party, or even Halloween! (Click here for the stencils.)

How to Make It

Step 1

Make and bake vanilla cupcakes according to recipe directions. After the cupcakes have cooled, frost with vanilla bean frosting.

Step 2

To make the Superman cupcake toppers: print the stencils (which can be found here) and cut them out.

Step 3

Next, roll out the blue fondant to 1/4th inch thickness. Using the circle stencil, cut out the circles with a sharp knife. Store any leftover fondant in a ziptop plastic bag so it won't dry out.

Step 4

Roll out the yellow fondant next, and use the diamond-shaped stencil to cut out the yellow diamonds. Store leftover fondant in a ziptop plastic bag.

Step 5

Next, trace the S-symbol onto the red Sugar Sheet with a black edible ink marker. (Edible ink markers can be found at most craft stores.) Use a pair of sharp scissors to cut out the shapes, and then peel the plastic off the back.

Step 6

Dampen the center of a blue circle with water and place a yellow diamond on top. Lightly coat the yellow diamond with water and lay the red S on top of that. Repeat this process with the rest of your fondant shapes, and let the cupcake toppers dry completely before adding them to your cupcakes.
