Sam is a superhero wannabe! Do you have one at your house? I think most little boys (and truth be told, most big boys!) have a superhero alter ego. From all the party submissions I’ve received here at Spaceships and Laser Beams, I know kids LOVE the superhero party theme. The new ©2015 MARVEL Avengers movie is adding fodder for imagination! By the end of summer, I expect short superheroes will rescue us all from multiple disasters. I wonder if someone super will rescue me from housework if I scream “help”…I digress.

While Sam and I were at my friendly Walmart (yes, again, it’s my home away from home), we found the new ©2015 MARVEL Avengers kids’ birthday cards in the Hallmark aisle. They have all sorts of complementary Hallmark items in the same area, which is especially nice in case you’re in a hurry and trying to put a themed gift together. Even though we only needed to buy for one birthday boy, we bought three designs. Sam was certain we will want them for the next party, too. You know…when you care enough to send the very best…and you really want to keep at least one of them for yourself…you buy all three designs.

Back home, Sam was thrilled with the Thor’s hammer cupcakes I came up with. Whether you are making them for an Avenger’s themed birthday celebration or a party of one, I can promise you small stature superheroes love ‘em. Here’s the simple how-to:

Buy your favorite cake mix. Follow the directions, but add one package of pudding to the mix.

Top with Buttercream Icing:

  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

  1. Sprinkle cocoa on top of iced cupcake, so it looks like dirt.
  2. Spray edible silver glitter onto a large marshmallow. Add a pretzel stick handle.
  3. Position the “hammer head” on the cupcake, with the handle facing up.
