For a 30th birthday party I received this unusual request for a He-Man cake and cupcakes of the Masters of the Universe show’s characters.
I myself, unlike my husband and my sister, was not familiar with this cartoon hero, at all. It must have been around when I was growing up but somehow I never got to know the Masters of the Universe.
All of this was to change with this order.
The customer provided me with a number of pictures of He-Man and all the characters. So it was time for me to get up and close with them. At some point in time (1983) Wilton actually came out with a cake pan that would produce a He-Man shaped cake.
I used some of those cakes as inspiration for this cake which was carved from a large sheet cake. The vanilla bean cake with chocolate buttercream was covered and decorated in fondant to make to look like He-Man in his armor.
The cupcakes were chocolate chip flavor with chocolate buttercream and each decorated with a cupcake topper in the shape of the Masters of the Universe made from fondant. Although, I didn’t know the characters before, the Masters of the Universe and I share a deep connection now 😉
I would love to hear if you are familiar with this action hero at all?
