My daughter Hannah and I decided to try one of the cat cakes from your site. I wanted to try out something using fondant for the first time and she wanted to help. We picked the Kitten cake with yarn ball we found off this site.
Wanting a larger cake we decided to use 2 9inch round cakes. On the top cake we shaved off the edge to give the cake a more rounded look. We used Wilton buttercream icing we colored pink with some food coloring. Then we colored our fondant pink to match the icing before cutting it into strips and laying them on the cake to resemble a rolled up yarn ball as best as we could(not as easy as we thought it would be but we had fun!).
My daughter wanted to make her kitten look like our cat so we colored some of the fondant orange and she made the kitten. Toes and all!
I made this Kittens cake for my birthday to share with friends at dinner. I have never decorated a cake before and stumbled along this site and was inspired to give it a try. I left it till the last moment so I borrowed an idea from this site; kittens on a ball of wool.
I just made a chocolate cake sphere from two Pyrex bowls and joined and coated them with butter cream. Then used fondant to make my kittens and wool. If i could do it again i would choose a different colour than purple, and make it less Halloween looking, but I was fairly happy for my first try and I am looking forward to an opportunity to make another.
This Kitten Tails Cake is my first officially made cake for my Mum for Mother's Day last year. It is just a regular Victoria sponge cake mix with buttercream and jam filling with pre-rolled icing.
I also made the cats, bowls full of chicken (which is their favorite) and the scratching post out of icing. The cats are modeled on my Mums own cats. From left to right Minstrel, Rosie, Chloe and Nipper down the front.
