This was for my grandson's 5th bd. The Superman figurine is on top of a half ball pan. Think the base is 10 inch cake. I know the cake is chocolate, both filled and frosted with buttercream. After a 7-hour trip, little boys couldn't keep their fingers out of it! Kept patching it up until I said I wouldn't any more. Well, when my daughter got there she said I needed to patch it - they had dug a hole in the front of it! Just before the party my son decided he wanted the cake at a different location and when a friend moved it the figurine fell! Thanks for looking!
