This Hello Kitty cake was made for a co-worker by request. It is my third fondant cake and I am becoming less and less intimidated by fondant.
It was a very simple cake to make. I decided at the last minute to make it square to match the napkins. Didn't have a square cake pan, so I made two 13 x 9 cakes and cut them into 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 squares and stacked them. The icing was cream cheese - by request - or I would have used buttercream. I then just covered it in marshmallow fondant and tinted the remainder of the fondant in colors of the napkins. Butterflies and flowers made with cutters; I printed Kitty's face for a pattern, and cut it out with an exacto knife.
The only thing I did not like about doing this cake was that the cream cheese icing needs to stay refrigerated, so I had to wait until the very last minute to apply the fondant and decorations. Otherwise, a very easy and my co-worker was pleased.
We used two cake mixes from a box and bought the frosting as well for this Hello Kitty cake. We used food coloring as needed for the different colors, mixed the color in small baggies and then cut the tip to decorate.
We baked the cakes the night before the party. Used a homemade template for the head and cut the cake to this size. Then we froze both cakes over night to reduce crumbling when frosting. We could have frozen the cake longer, it was still a bit crumbly. Maybe it needed to be frozen through more. But never the less, it helped.
We used different ideas from this site. The tip to smoothing out the frosting on top by dipping your knife in warm water was most helpful. We used a small teaspoon to spread out the frosting on the bow, nose and eyes.
It was a huge hit at our daughter's 5 year Birthday party. Way to go daddy! You did a super job!
My Hello Kitty Cake was made out of 9 x 13 cake, white and black icing, jelly beans, pipe cleaners, and pink ribbon.
I trimmed the corners to get the right shape, and used the corner pieces as the ears. I used star tip to decorate the entire cake. Using a ready to use tube of black frosting, I completed the border around the base and top first, then filled in with the white frosting. I cut the black pipe cleaners to size(which were cute because they are fuzzy and held their shape well) and 2 black jelly beans for eyes, and 1 yellow for the nose. Finally, I added wired, pink ribbon.
I did freeze the cake after I cut it into the Hello Kitty shape, and it was a lot easier to decorate. Total time decorating was less than an hour. Simple and very cute for my daughter's b-day.
I followed instructions to a cake box for this Hello Kitty cake. Poured it into a greased 9x13 glass pan.
After it had baked and cooled, I just cut out the kitty with a knife making sure to cut out the bow part too. Then first I frosted with white and then made the blotting decor over so if there were any holes from cake they would be covered underneath.
Used a bright pink for the bow, used black jelly beans for the eyes, black licorice for the whiskers and just made a nose with the left over pink.
This Hello Kitty cake was really easy. I just used a round cake pan and sculpted the ears after the cake had cooled. I used plain white icing and made the bow out of dyed fondant.
I used a simple black cake writer for the eyes and mouth. I used pink food dye on the cake board for the background and also used cake glitter to give the frosting a little shine. I then used black licorice for the whiskers.
It was easy and a big hit at my cousin's birthday party.
