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.

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.
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.
