Google hello kitty coloring page to get the desired inspiration. For the background frosting, tint Wilton brand frosting with gel coloring, microwave it on low in a glass measuring cup, stopping every few seconds to stir until it was runny enough to pour.

Pour the blue "sky" on the top half making sure to run down the sides. With a metal spatula quickly smooth the side to cover any bare spots & spread the horizon into the desired shape. Repeat with green frosting for the grass. Let frosting set until a slight crust forms.

Cut out Hello Kitty's outline to use as a "stencil" if free hand is so much for you. Make black Color Flow Icing using the Wilton recipe on their meringue powder. Draw or trace all the black outlines onto you cake using a small round tip or a zip lock bag with a corner snipped off, also do her nose now. Let dry 1-2 hours.

Make a thinner/runnier white, pink, & orange royal icing to fill her silhouette. (I didn't make mine thin enough so you can see where I had to use a metal spatula to try to spread the icing). Embellish the landscape with flowers, grass, bugs, clouds, & make dots around the base using the extra frosting.

Homemade Hello Kitty Birthday Cake

This Hello Kitty Birthday cake was made for one of my niece's 1st birthday party. I am a huge fan of Hello Kitty so I thought it would be the perfect theme for her party.

The cake is a 9" two layer round yellow cake, the mix was store bought. I then put a thin layer of buttercream icing and let it set in the refrigerator. The buttercream recipe came from Wilton it was made with 4C. powdered sugar, 1/2C. solid veg.shortening, 1 stick of butter, 2 TB milk, 1 ts. clear vanilla.

I then rolled out my fondant and covered the entire cake, smoothing it out immediately. I let the fondant-covered cake set in the refrigerator uncovered for 2-3 hours before decorating the cake. Once the fondant set I used Wilton's gel icing in black to draw the kitty's whiskers and outline the nose.

The nose was filled with Wilton's gel icing in yellow. I made the kitty's hairbow out of white fondant and sprayed it with Wilton's food coloring mist in pink. The cake was finished by bordering the cake with yellow stars using Wilton's decorating icing in lemon yellow. The cake was a hit!

I made this Hello Kitty cake for my sister's seventeenth birthday. She's the biggest Hello Kitty fan ever! :) I used the idea of the Hello Kitty cake already shown on this site.

This cake is a 2-layer cake 8" round. I made it with a funfetti cake mix using a lemon filling. I frosted it with a pink buttercream frosting and white for the Hello Kitty head with yellow for the beading around the edges. I then used a variation of a buttercream frosting that substituted crisco for the butter.

I traced Hello Kitty's image onto the frosting and filled it with a star tip. I used jellybeans for the flower and black icing for the eyes and whiskers.

The hardest part of making this cake was getting the proportions of Hello Kitty's face just right. I just about ruined the nose, because my frosting was a little too thick to shape!
