I totally and completely fell in love with the Avengers cake that I did for a little superhero's birthday party this summer. It was colorful, fun and fit each of the superhero themes in just two tiers.
I started off with a 6" red velvet and an 8" chocolate cake. Then, rolled out two shades of blue fondant, yellow fondant and black fondant. To apply the fondant, loosely measure and fit the fondant to the 8" cake in quarters and cover the seams with a strip of green fondant. Roll out red fondant and cover the 6" cake. Now, time for the fun. I created my own superhero templates by tracing logos from off of the computer, cutting them out and using a sharp knife to cut out individual shapes and stick them together. The two blue shades were dedicated to Captain America and Superman. The black was for Batman and the yellow for Ironman. The red tier was fairly simple. Just roll out thin strands of black fondant, pick your center and starting from there, lay your stripes across the cake from the front to the back. Lay shorter horizontal stripes in between each of the verticle stripes and allow them to bend a little to make a complete spiderweb. Trace out a pair of spidey eyes and your set.
Now....for the Hulk fist. That one took a bit of patience. I attempted the fist twice and it didn't actually come out like a fist until I decided to not think about what I was doing, just do it. Generally you start off with a ball, and use a fondant tool to make the outlines of fingers. This fist is made of fondant but you can use rice krispy treat as the center, then use a toothpick and water to stabilize the fist on top of the cake. Roll out a piece of red fondant and cut out small triangles. Slightly curl the triangles and stick them around the circumference of the hulk fist. Lastly, step back and put on your red cape because you've just completed an Avenger's cake! Woooooo!
I know this can be technical but if you attempt this cake, just have fun. The more positive that you feel, the more positive of an outcome you'll have on the cake. I hope this helps!

Hey cake lovers! If you haven't heard, allow me the pleasure of introducing you to the Black Bean Brownie. Yes, you read correctly. The main ingredient in the black bean brownie are black beans. The same ones used for soups, stews, etc. Desserts can officially be added to the list (even though I'm sure this wasn't the first dessert ever in history to be made from black beans). I've been reading up on these black bean brownies for weeks and couldn't wait until I had some free time to make them.
Supposedly, they tasted like any 'normal' brownie and never give off the texture or flavor of a black bean (if any). So, I gave them a shot, adding my own personal tweaks. Just as I had taken my first bite, the sun started to peek out from the clouds. The rain stopped and down came the Cupcake Fairy...gracing me with her presence once again. She looked at me, and without words said "Yes my dear, you are awake and have just witnessed the best brownie you've ever had in your life, spread the word and may the force be with you". She's heavy into Sci-Fi, but any-who, they were ridiculously good. I honestly wasn't expecting them to be so amazing. They were super moist, very flavorful and pretty much the exact same consistency and texture as any flour recipe. They give off the same crumbly cake texture, fudgy-ness and density that we're used to. It just assured me how amazing beans can be.
Last year, I went on a gluten-free diet and although gluten free foods are extremely accessible now-a-days, with most gluten-free foods you have to get use to a different texture. I would've loved having these around! Replace the granulated sugar with sugar in the raw or a natural sweetener and they're guilt free. I wonder what else I could make out of brownies...

10 Seasonal Spring Fruits
(for your cakes and bakes)

Late Spring, Early Summer
There's nothing like a handful of cold cherries. These refreshing 'stone fruit' are available late Spring through early Summer. They're usually not offered year round unless in the form of a maraschino cherry which is sweetened then jarred and can be used for multiple dishes. Want an amazing 'sweet and sour' sauce?Combine maraschino cherry and pineapple juice, then cook until thickened. If you'll be picking up some fresh cherries this season, try this simple Cherry Strudel served warm over vanilla bean ice cream. Mmmm..... :)
Last but not least, the oh-so-popular Strawberry. Another one that is offered year round, but at its
best during the Spring and Summer seasons. My favorite strawberry desserts are ones with whole pieces of fresh strawberries and whipped cream or cream cheese for dipping...which leads me to choose a light Strawberry Meringue Cake. The meringue layers are quick and easy to create, which makes this dessert a great last minute go-to when you're in the mood for something light and sweet.
I hope this helps...
