I got on a bit of a curiosity trip today after re-reading the first Batman / Superman story that climaxed in this panel, and it got me thinking about how many times those two have swapped places in order to
push Lois into a psychological meltdown preserve their secret identities. Turns out, it's a pretty big number.
While searching, I came across this piece of sweet, sweet goodness from 1977 (.PDF link). Here's the pertinent bit of cake-making genius:
It's a Batman AND a Superman cake all rolled into one!
This is truly a thing of 1970's baked-goods awesomeness! By simply using different frostings and the handy face and logo plastic bits included, you can make this mold into either hero!

Ah! But what about Power Girl?!? Everybody loves Power Girl.. even pre-pubescent li'l kids who can't quite figure out why...
And Finally! Let's do something more current. Show the kiddies we're hip like that!
These are fun!
(Someone stop me. I really need to get out more....)
