I made this Hello Kitty cake while living in Japan! All of our Japanese friends were amazed at such a huge cake. Of course, since Hello Kitty is Japanese, they loved it even more. I baked two 9x13 cakes, one chocolate and one white, and I placed them next to each other. I used Wilton's buttercream icing recipe, keeping some white for Kitty's face, but dying the rest two shades of pink, a little bit black, and a little bit yellow.
After frosting the whole cake in light pink, I traced an outline of Kitty with a toothpick onto the cake. I used a small star tip to fill in the image, making her eyes, nose, and bow as well with stars. I used a small round tip to make her whiskers. I wasn't too confident in my writing skills yet, so I had my mom bring over the hard candy writing from America. I stuck the Happy Birthday on top, then wrote my daughter's name using the dark pink icing with a star tip. I piped a shell border along the bottom in dark pink as well.
This was one of my first cakes, and I've learned a lot since then. I was happy with how Kitty turned out though.
I made this Hello Kitty cake for one of my birthdays because I loved Hello Kitty. It is a simple chocolate cake baked in a round pan. To decorate the cake I used pink butter icing for the main part, and to make Hello Kitty white I used copha instead of butter in butter icing, because there would be a yellow tinge if I used butter.
Hello Kitty is decorated with jellybeans for her features and flower, and licorice for whiskers. I found heart shaped gummy lollies from a Chinese grocer which I stuck on around the cake.
To ice the cake I drew in the outline of Hello Kitty's face with a knife and first iced the pink part, filling in Kitty's face afterward.
To review the copha icing, I would say it is a great white colour, but it tasted pretty much like sugar, so I would recommend it to be used only on part of a cake like this one, not on the whole cake. Also, if you don't have copha it would work just as well to use eggwhite icing.
This is a Hello Kitty cake I made this past weekend for my daughter's 5th birthday. She said she wanted a Hello Kitty cake and I knew it had to be pink (everything has to be pink ;). I looked for Hello Kitty cakes at the local grocery stores that I could order and the few I did find I didn't like.
So I started searching and found this site and got inspired! I didn't want to attempt a shaped cake just yet. So I made a two layer 9X13 funfetti cake with strawberry jelly in the middle. I used store bought icing in the tubs for the cake and the cupcake icing in the can with the interchangeable tips for Hello Kitty, the writing and the borders.
I used a picture I printed off the internet as my guideline for Hello Kitty. I also used jelly beans for her eyes and black licorice for her whiskers. I think it turned out pretty good for a first-timer and it was a big hit at the party! But most importantly, my daughter loved it!
