This is a Homemade Kitty Birthday Cake Design I made for my friend's daughter, my second attempt using fondant! I started with two 12 inch round cakes, then used a small metal bowl and filled 1/4 way full of batter, this is for the bump for the nose! I used a mini loaf pan and filled half way full of batter, baked, froze and then cut out the ears.

I assembled the cake putting a layer of frosting between, dirty iced it and then rolled out my fondant. I use homemade fondant, it tastes way better than the store bought kind, and is way cheaper. I color my fondant as I go, this way you don't waste any! I used chocolate wafers for the eyes, and all of the other decoration is colored fondant.

You can make your kitty any color, I choose gray, black and white cause this is the color of my friend's cat. To make the strips for your kitty the same on both sides of the face roll out and double your fondant. Make sure to use plenty of powdered sugar between layers so they don't stick, then just peel apart after cutting and you have the same shape for each side.

Have fun and enjoy making this cake I did.

Coolest Calico Kitten Cake 37

Homemade Calico Kitten Cake

Homemade Calico Kitten Cake

I used a small 8 inch round pan for the body, cut in half and put halves together upright. I used two pampered chef prep bowls (each cut in half for the paws. The tail and ears were cut from another small round cake. I used another pampered chef prep bowl for the head and added a small circle piece of cake to the front (face) for a better mouth/nose area.

I used skewers to secured the head and tail and tooth picks to secure the ears. Then I froze the cake for a couple hours, then it was easy to use a knife to shave bits off to make the shape just like I wanted it. I crumb coated the cake and froze it over night. I used vanilla frosting ( some colored with orange and a little brown for the like orangy color) and also milk chocolate frosting for the darker areas.

The nose, tongue and ball of yarn were made from MMF. I like the way this Calico Kitten Cake turned out. I hope the little girl I made it for likes her little kitty.

Homemade Cat Cake

Homemade Cat Cake

Pretty simple. This cat cake was for my 1 year old, who was in love with the family cat.

I used a 9 inch round and made a few cupcakes, which I cut up and fashioned the ears with toothpicks. The eyes are Mint Oreos with the pupils being brown M&Ms.

The tongue is fruit roll up as is the inside of the ears. The mouth outline is red licorice & black whiskers are frosting.

White Cat Cake

White Cat Cake

This was my first cake I ever made. My daughter had a kitty birthday party when she turned six. I used 2 round cakes to cut the cat cake the way I wanted it shaped.

I piped it with different color icing using my Wilton star tips. I outlined the cake with light brown icing. The eyes were blue and ears pink. I also outlined the collar. This cake was placed on a 10x14 cake board.

I made this Cat Cake with ideas from this site! Had fun doing it too! I used the Betty Crocker Halloween Cat pattern suggested by another and homemade marshmallow fondant. My 7 year old daughter loved it, that's all that really matters.

This is a Great Cake, I am thinking of making a cake to look like my daughters ORANGE TABBY cat for her 13th birthday.. Can you post some hints of what you used to make the Shape.. Great Job..

by: deb

your cake is fantastic.I am just a beginner and am very inspired by your talent. you are a very clever lady.

by: mandy

thank you for all the nice comments! I'm very flattered. This was the only the second cake I ever made and it was some time ago. The best tip I learnt was to make the cake well in advance and freeze it. Then cut or carve the shape you want when its still frozen (you need a good knife) that way it doesn't crumble at all and keeps its shape. You can still put fondant icing on it while its still frozen and the moisture sweats out through it, just make sure you don't touch it while its drying out. Regards Mandy

Awesome cake! But how do you make the whiskers?

The Whiskers
by: Mandy Bentley

I made the whiskers using white thin florist wire used for making the sugar flowers.

Fabulous cat cake
by: Jacinta

I'm very impressed by your ginger cat cake, and I have to make one tomorrow which I'm hoping will be as good as yours. Please could you tell me if you covered it with icing in one go, or have you made it up of more than one component? Many thanks for any advice

LOVE your cat cake!!
by: Goldiesgirl

Did you use a pan, or just free hand the shape?? I would love to make one for my granddaughter's birthday...any directions you can post would be great!!

Surprisingly Easy!

What an amazing cake!

I'm making this cake at the moment for my daughter's 3rd birthday. After asking for a cat cake and having just finished it, she's started asking for a duck!

This is the first 3D cake I've made and i've never done fondant icing before. I've been puzzling over how to replicate this one for a couple of weeks and thought I'd let everyone know who might be learning as this cake looks great . It is surprisingly easy so have a go! Here's how it has best worked for me:

4 Victoria sponges 28cm and 4x 24cm.
Slice the tops off if bulging too much so they stack nicely.
Stack 28cm cakes on top of each other for the body and likewise with the 24cm for the head.
I used choc filling for the head and jam for the head. I took some cake from one of the sliced tops to stick on with choc to form the tail.
I then cut down the side of each stack of cakes to make a straight line to join the head and the body.
Freeze cakes separately.
Remove cakes and then start to carve while frozen into shape using a serrated knife.
Leave a bit of a bulge where the legs will be. Don't worry if they don't stick out that much as you can form them with the next step.
Make some butter icing to smooth over the cake.
Roll out fondant (cheated by putting it on the knead function on a bread machine!) I used 2kg of icing sugar)
Ask for some help to handle the sheet. Cover head and body separately. Cover join with the collar.
Make ears, mouth, eyes and feet with left over fondant. They seem to stick on easily.
Then paint with colouring.

Have fun and leave lots of time before the big day!
