This Hello Kitty cake was made for our daughter's 3rd B-day last year. I started with a simple butter cake mix, flavored with almond extract. When it was done and cooled, I cut it in 3 layers.
While the cake was cooling, I made a raspberry filling, with frozen raspberries, powdered sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. I combined all the above ingredients and cooked it on the stove top on slow fire, until it became creamy. Cooled it off completely.
Before used the filling on the cake, I covered the cake with a thin layer of butter cream to seal it. I iced the outside of the cake with the same butter cream before I covered the cake with the store bought uncolored fondant.
I made the bow from the remaining fondant, used jellybeans for the eyes and nose. And chocolate covered pretzel rods (can be found at the oriental isle in the shopping market) for the whiskers. I also put some blue colored decorating candy on the bow as a nice finishing touch.
This Hello Kitty cake was for my niece's 2nd birthday. I made a pink and white 3-layer checkerboard cake using a checkerboard cake pan set (Pampered Chef). It was a white sour cream cake.
I made a triple batch of the Wilton Buttercream frosting. I frosted the entire cake in pink. I then traced the Hello Kitty from the birthday party invite onto wax paper. I turned the wax paper over and using a #4 tip in white and then pink drew the outline of Hello Kitty on the wax paper, which I then transferred to the top of the cake.
I filled in Hello Kitty with stars (#16 tip). I then wrote the Happy Birthday message and covered the rest of the cake (sides and top) with round cake decorating candies. Beth loved it, and it's one of my favorites of all the cakes I've made for my nieces and nephews!
I used fondant HK cutout and decorated her using the star method. I tinted the home made frosting with food coloring & added 3 yellow M&M's to her crown. I wrote the birthday lady's name on her sash using a piping bag (just cut a hole big enough to write letters).Two different sized cakes for fun and more M&M's for color.
The Hello Kitty cake itself is Wilton's recipe for the checkerboard cake, since CKay really doesn't like regular cake (spongy light ones). After I delivered this cake, parts of her crown broke off d/t how heavy the M&M's and how thin the fondant was, thank goodness I took a picture of it before sending her off to be eaten.
My Hello Kitty cake! I've adored Hello Kitty since I was 5 years old and till this day I continue to buy all things HK. For this cake, I used store bought frosting & made 3 different flavored cakes to finally stack up 6 layers of cake in descending sizes.
I used fondant and cut up different colors to make Hello Kitty (tinted with food coloring). The black was Wilton's and the roses were just cookie cut. Hello Kitty is so cute!
