I made this Hello Kitty Waving cake for the daughter of a friend. I first baked a strawberry cake using a 11x15 Wilton sheet cake pan.
After cooling the cake I put it in the freezer which makes it really firm and easy to work with, and it also helps reduce the amount of crumbs. Later using a homemade template I cut out the shape of the cake, then I crumb coated it with vanilla butter cream icing. To decorate the cake I stenciled on the various features using the star piping technique along with several different colors of butter cream, like pink and purple to make it very girly.
I decided not to add Hello Kitty's whiskers because it did not fit in well with the over all look of the cake; however, color, shape, and style can be varied to create an individualized cake.
Everybody always use the cake pan to make the Hello Kitty Cake. I said let's do something different. So I decided to just draw a big picture on a half sheet cake and make it look like sprinkles all over the cake. This was a yellow cake with my own special icing creation. It's a secret.
My clients loved the cake so much that the husband and wife called me at different times to thank me at least three times a piece that day. Their daughter Jada was so happy. The mother told that the lady at the other table at Chuck E. Cheese was so astonished by my cake she wanted to taste and then asked for a business card to whom every made the cake.
I tried baking a cake in this pan previous times but the batter would always stick, I looked up tips online and they said make sure and grease with shortening and flour really good.
I made this Homemade Hello Kitty Shaped Pan Cake for my three year old daughter's birthday. She was so happy! It took a bit longer to do than I was expecting. I had it done right as we had to leave for the pizza place!
The whole cake is frosted with home made buttercream. I used the star tip in white to do the whole thing. The eyes and nose were piped in with a small hole tip and then I smoothed them down flat with my finger dipped in cornstarch.
I used two round cakes which I cut in half and a 9x12 Pyrex baking dish for this Hello Kitty third birthday cake. I cut two small rectangles out of the 9x12 to put between the 1/2 circles to make an oval. The extra made the ears.
This made a very big double-layer cake. It took two boxes of cake mix. I used homemade butter cream icing for a crumb coat, but in order to get the pure white, for the final coat used store-bought from a can. The eyes and nose are jelly beans, whiskers are licorice vines. To get the bow, I rolled pink gumdrops with a rolling pin with lots of granulated sugar and cut the bow shape out.
This Hello Kitty Cake is on a 1/4 sheet crumb coated and frosted first. I bought a cheap Hello Kitty coloring book and found the perfect image to place on this birthday cake. I took tinted piping gel and wax paper and traced the image onto the wax paper then transferred the image onto the cake.
Careful, now your image is reversed! Outline the image with a #2 tip and fill in all colors with #3. Shell border the bottom and reverse shell the top border. This is an easy technique to do with any favorite character cake to ensure the perfect image!
