Oh yeah, when you freeze the icing, the "lines" from the butter creme show, so after letting it come to room temperature, I took a hair dryer to it to make everything look "glossy".

What I did is printed out a Superman emblem off the computer, traced it BACKWARDS onto parchment paper and taped the parchment (pen side down) to an upside down jelly roll pan. Next I traced the emblem with icing in a piping bag. Then I filled in all the other areas. Then I stuck the pan in the freezer until the icing was frozen. Freezing makes it easy to peel, flip and stick onto already iced cake. The small emblems on the side were bought at a kitchen store. It turned out WAY better than I thought it would. The cake was a Red Velvet cake with yellow icing between the layers, to keep with the Superman theme.

If I had more time I would have made all the small emblems too. They really are quite easy.

OK - my son is 15 and has returned to his Superman phase!!  He would love this!  Did you do this all with icing or did you buy parts of it?  Just curious...looks GREAT either way!
