Why on earth did I decide to make a Hulk cake? Sawyer (my son )is Turning 3 and he is going through a major hulk faze it is his favorite hero and he can often be heard going around the house yelling “HULK SMASH! ” so naturally his cake request this year was a hulk smash cake when I began planning out this cake and looking in the stores for supplied I noticed there’s just wasn’t much locally for hulk toys\decorations so of course being the Amazon prime and Pinterest addict that I am that’s where I began and I came up with the perfect easy and inexpensive cake for a 3-year-old boy and decided I should share just how to make it for all those other mom’s out there stumped on birthday cake ideas

First things first let’s start off with what you will need
- An 8-inch cake pan this is the size i used
- Offset icing spatula like this
- Hulk cake topper i used this this
- Food coloring i used this one
- Baking spray i use this one for baking
- Chocolate and vanilla frosting 3 cans 2 chocolate 1 vanilla (I used pre made in the interest of time )
- 4 4.5 oz xl KitKat bars
- Family sized 19.20 oz bag of m&ms
- 2 boxes of your favorite cake mix i used this kind baked in the 8-inch pan according to box directions (you will need 3 layers)
- Optional a cake turntable (makes things a bit easier and less of a mess) this one is a great deal
Now to assemble
Once you have baked your 3 layers and completely allowed them to cool I recommend putting them in a freezer storage bag and freezing them for 2 hours or even overnight if you want to bake ahead of time this is a trick I use to make assembly and frosting easier with less risk of the cake breaking or tearing
STACKING YOUR LAYERS
To begin you want to put a small amount of icing on your plate or cake stand and then lay your first layer on top of the icing then you ice the top of each layer and stack like pictured above and then take the rest of chocolate frosting and frost the remainder of the cake
adding on the kitkats
Now this part is simple just add your kitkat sticks all around the cake leaving a small kitkatless opening at the front (as pictured above) if the cake seems to be getting to warm you can chill it in the fridge while you prepare the green frosting
Frost the top and opening of the cake with the prepared green frosting
Get your hulk figure placed where you like and make sure it’s fixed to the cake how you prefer
Add your m&ms to the top and opening of the cake and break a few of the left over kitkat sticks and place near the bottom to give that hulk smash effect
Add on a candle if you prefer clean up your cake plate and then you have your finished product!
