In the 1940s, Captain America became a huge hit. Because the superhero first appeared during World War II and his comics were packed with patriotic themes, he played a crucial role in inspiring soldiers. Captain America, an ideal role model, was soon referred to as “The First Avenger” throughout the Marvel Universe.

In this decade, the character once again reached its zenith of popularity. Thanks to the Marvel Studios blockbuster films based on the character and his part in the superhero team The Avengers. One of the most popular superheroes, Captain America, is a popular choice for birthday cake designs.

1. Real Captain America Action Figures as Cake Toppers

Cake toppers are the best way to spice up a simple cake if you need more time to bake or the money to make a custom cake. You can buy standard cake toppers at a low price, but you can take it to the next level by adding actual Captain America action figures to your centerpiece! The best part about using them is that you can give action figure cake toppers as gifts to yourself or the party host. 

2. Sprinkles or Candies in the Cake Design

You can beautifully decorate this cake with sprinkles. Try to find solid-colored sprinkles in red, blue, and white instead of the usual rainbow sprinkles. You can even create the pattern of Cap’s shield with the sprinkles on top of a frosted buttercream cake!

You can use candies like Skittles or M & Ms if the sprinkles are too messy. Finding white ones can be difficult, but they are simpler to “assemble.”
