Captain America’s Sweet Shield Cakes

Captain America's Sweet Shield Shortcakes | #Avengers #Disney #recipe

My boys are really into superheroes.  Like, REALLY into superheros.  I’m sure many of you moms with little boys can totally relate here :)  We have everything – masks, capes, toys, figures, and they still can’t get enough!  Reece had an Avengers party for his last birthday and of course my boys were super heroes for Halloween!


We love creating recipes with a superhero theme and these Captain America cakes are just perfect!  We made these for our last Avengers party and they were a huge hit.  Of course Memorial Day is coming right up and these would be perfect for that as well!    Totally easy to make and boy were they fun to eat!


I love having fresh fruit during the summer time. It’s the perfect way to enjoy something a little bit sweet!

Captain America’s Sweet Shield Shortcakes
  • 2 pound cakes (I used Sara Lee)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbls powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • fresh strawberries, sliced
  • fresh blueberries
  1. Slice the pound cake into even slices. Use a circle cutter to cut out a circle from each slice.
  2. Beat the heavy cream in a chilled bowl just until soft peaks form. Add in vanilla and sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks from.
  3. Spread a layer of whipped cream on one pound cake and layer with blueberries and/or strawberries. Add another slice of pound cake and repeat.
  4. Use the blueberries and strawberries to create a design on top if you desire.

We love making “super hero” food and here are some more ideas:
