I found this site, while looking for photos of Hello Kitty cakes, and was totally inspired. I made this cake for my daughter's tenth birthday party and hated cutting it!
I used a 14" round cake pan with those good old magic cake strips. I used two boxes of a store-bought funfetti mix and baked it at 325°. I carved out the shape of Kitty's head, using a paper template of her head, made from a poster, that just happened to be the exact size I needed. I made buttercream icing, using only butter and no crisco, and dirty iced the cake with this first. I then covered it with fondant.
I made the bow and eyes from fondant. I only had white fondant, so I used some gel coloring and kneaded the color into the fondant, which was time-consuming but worth it. I didn't have gloves to keep the color from staining my hands, so I kneaded it in a ziploc bag until most of the color was blended and then finished it with bare hands. I used black licorice for the whiskers and a jelly bean for the nose.
No one at the party could believe that I hadn't hired a professional to make this cake! It really was not hard, just time-consuming. It was as yummy as it was cute!

I made this Homemade Hello Kitty Birthday Cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday party.
This is my very first fondant cake and I had no experience working with fondant or decorating. I found a Hello Kitty picture online and printed it to size. Cut out the head and the body to be used later.
I used 2 9"inch rounds to make the head and the body of the cake. I used Carrot Cake for the head and Devils food cake for the body.
I made buttercream icing and crumb coated it, then made Marshmallow fondant and covered the cake. Then I colored the rest of the fondant (one pink and one blue) and layered on the dress, crown and bows on top. Jelly Beans were used for the eyes and nose, and cut up pieces of Licorice were used for whiskers. I used fruit gushers for the ruby, and Maynards for the decorating at the base of the dress.

I made this Hello Kitty Birthday Cake for a friend who turned 30 (would have thought!) I was afraid I wouldn't have been able to keep the authenticity of Hello Kitty, but I did it!
The cake is made from it from scratch, vanilla with Dulce de Leche filling, which is a hit with all my cakes. I coated it with buttercream and covered with white fondant. I used the same fondant and tinted it pink to make the bows and the border (which is small round cookie cutters).
The whiskers and eyes where chocolate fondant and the nose was yellow colored fondant. The letters are also fondant using medium sized letter cutters. I haven't been to the party but u know it will be a hit!
This Hello Kitty Birthday Cake was pretty simple to make for my niece's 7th birthday. We started with a rectangular cake (from a mix). I free-handed the shape of Hello Kitty's head with a knife and ended up with four small corners from the rectangular cake that were not needed.
We iced it, used large black jelly beans for the eyes, a small jelly bean cut in half for the nose, black licorice for the whiskers and fashioned flowers from jelly beans. Simple and the kids loved it!!
