Homemade Hello Kitty Birthday Cake Idea

My daughter requested a Littlest Pet Shop theme for her birthday and so I looked around trying to figure out what to do about her cake.

I baked two chocolate 9x13 cakes and separated each cake in half lengthwise to spread a very thin layer of chocolate pudding inside for extra moistness. The center layer was pink tinted buttercream icing using Wilton's recipe. I iced the cake with the pink icing (two layers - one crumb layer and one top layer), then transferred a pattern from a coloring page I found on the internet of the kitty cat using piping gel.

I used black icing to draw over the piping gel pattern then filled in the pattern with light pink, blue and brown-ish icing (tip 2 then patted down with my finger dipped in cornstarch to avoid smearing). I piped large circles on the side of the cake and patted down to make paw prints, then did a border and write her name.

This Hello Kitty Birthday Cake Idea wasn't hard to do but still took quite a bit of time when you factor in making the icing, tinting it and decorating the cake. She absolutely LOVED it!!

This Hello Kitty Cupcake Cake is the first cupcake cake that I made for a little girl's birthday party. The child's mother wanted a Hello Kitty cupcake cake. I searched the internet for pictures of Hello Kitty, one that I knew would be perfect. I decided to test my skills and create the actual shape of Hello Kitty out of cupcakes.

After positioning the cupcakes, using the picture as a model, I piped buttercream (not too thick) to cover all gaps within the cupcakes. Then I used my off-set spatula to smooth the icing making sure the edges were neat. Using the picture as a model, I piped the outline in black icing with a round tip, star tipped the outside edge of the black icing and the body of the character.

I was extremely pleased with the outcome and so was my client!!

I made this Hello Kitty Birthday Cake Idea for my friend's daughter who was turning 10. First I made a square sponge. I then drew the picture I liked off the internet onto the bottom of the cake with a toothpick (I find free drawing easier for me) but I am sure you could trace the picture you like and put it onto the cake another way.

I then got some Betty Crocker ready made vanilla icing added a little pink to one a darker pink and a light purple. All it is then is colouring in (I use a toothpick to move the icing around cake so not to disturb anything and it's easier to get into little spots. The eyes and whiskers are licorice and the nose and center of flower are smarties. The petals on the flowers are marshmallows cut in half.

This Hello Kitty Birthday Cake Idea was made for my friend's daughter's 1st birthday. I cut out this cake with a template of Hello Kitty. I used buttercream frosting and fondant. I cut small strips for the black whiskers and also used the bottom of the cake tip to make the eyes and nose.

I used Wilton rose color food coloring for the bow and obviously black and yellow food coloring for nose/ whiskers. I cut out the "1" and used a edible glitter. I enjoyed making this cake. It was a little easier then some of my previous cakes and it turned out well.
