My brother asked me to make my niece a Hello Kitty cake for her 9th birthday. I only have boys so Hello Kitty is a bit of a mystery to me, so after looking at millions of pic's on line and on here looking for ideas I suggested Emo Hello Kitty as I was sick of pink. I did eventually settle on the simple Hello Kitty we ended up with due to a last minute lack of decorating faith.
I used a 10" square chocolate and vanilla marble cake for her head and a 9" square one for her body both filled with vanilla butter creme. Using a picture I had found on line that had been blown up to required size, printed and cut out, I carved the shape needed and dirty iced it and left to chill for a while in the fridge.
No matter how hard I tried I could not get my butter icing to go white enough until I found super white in my local cake shop which was brilliant. Using a small star tip I started covering the cake in white and pink and using black for the outline of the bow and dress, eyes and nose (anyone tell me why she has no mouth answers on a postcard please).
She did have whiskers but the girl at the bowling alley who brought out the cake forgot to put them on (and she also put a age 6 candle on it) made out of liquorice wands.
All the girls (and my 3 boys) at the party loved it and my niece was very happy.
I made this homemade Hello Kitty Rose birthday cake for my daughter Kaylie's 4th birthday. When she said she wanted a Hello Kitty birthday, I immediately went out and bought a Hello Kitty candle.
I decided to make a small tiered cake that looked like the cake next to Hello Kitty on the candle. I started with baking a 9-inch round cake and then I made two progressively smaller cakes to top that. I had to make a lot of roses to go around the bottom of the cake. I made them the day before and put them in the fridge so I could just stick them on the cake when I was ready.
I had never made icing roses before, so I went to the Wilton website and learned how to make them by watching a video demonstration online. I made extra roses to make sure I had plenty even if some broke. After icing the cake with the pink and purple, I placed the roses and then added the leaves with a leaf tip. The roses definitely turned out to be my favorite part!
The Hello Kitty Tanker Idea came about when my boss asked me to make a cake for his wife. I asked, what does your wife like? Any ideas? Colors, shapes, characters, flavors? To my dismay, he didn’t have a clue, his wife of 20 years! So, I asked around, found out that she likes Hello Kitty and strawberries! My bff suggested I make a Hello Kitty coming out of a tanker. Captain Mrs. J. David. Loved the idea of making her the captain for a day! Simple as that!
The bottom of the tank was strawberry cake with fresh strawberries and jam filling, top of tank was chocolate cake with the same filling. Hello kitty was chocolate cake with no filling and the hat was vanilla cake. For the frosting I made Wilton’s Butter Cream recipe. Tank was covered with fondant colored with moss green, leaf green, brown and a hint of yellow coloring.
The Hello Kitty pearls where made with fondant colored with gray food coloring. Flowers where also made with yellow colored fondant and then adorned them with edible sugar pearls.
