best birthday cake

candee | Feb 22, 2009 06:34 PM

I'm having an 8th birthday party for my lil' guy . The guests will be kids AND their parents (several of whom are foodies). I'm in the SFV and have done the always- reliable Hansen's thing for the last several years. I'm looking to branch out, but am frightened.
Biggest fears;
too sugary sweet (cake,frosting or both) - we're not SusieCakes people
grainy or lardish buttercream
dry/cardboard-ish cake

I'm lucky in that my kid doesn't like his desserts too sweet, however I do need a superhero motif.

Any recs, please?
