    VERY easy…. 🙂 Do you bake? If so… just a plain / choc sponge cake…. cover in fondant….. (or colour some buttercream icing)….

    And roll some black sugar paste (which you can get for a few euro at Cake Couture)…. cut out the design of the bat (template you can get on the net)…. and Bob’s your uncle.

    Homemade ALWAYS tastes better!

    I’ve just done a Marvel Cake for my 7 year old…. and its all just about how much detail you want to put in.
    But for low budget…. def make your own…. 😉

    Mine had lots of detail… but perhaps using just the colours etc….? With the template? Should make it simple enough for you? OR….. if you don’t want to go the whole sugarpaste route… then Buttercream the cake… and print out the image / or a batman image…. (you might be able to get someone who has an edible ink printer?)… or…. print the little bats on paper….attach to little coctail sticks… and stick in all over the cake ?

    Hope that helps…. ?

    Tx Sabbi…. I just wanted to give an idea as to the colours etc…. the little bats etc would be very easy to do…. and Waffy1 could get the idea across without it costing too much… 🙂 Sure, if you have the budget then fair enough… but if you are like me, trying to cut costs wherever I can…. 🙄 Being that the cake was for my son, I was happy to use what I had in the cupboard! lol

    Waffy if the cake seems too much, you could do cup cakes with butter icing and then black roll out icing and do little bat shapes to sit on each cake….
