My friend loves Hello Kitty. So for her birthday I decided to make her a big Hello Kitty cake. I made a three tier, six layer cake. She is just like a big kid in some ways and so I wanted this to be the biggest cake she ever had!
She loves pink so I used pink frosting to decorate the cake. I also made pink flowers out of fondant by kneading pink into the store bought fondant from our local craft store. I then used cookie cutters to cut out the fondant flowers. I placed them in a bowl to create a 3D look.
After a day they were dried and I was able to attach them to the cake with frosting. Note.....When adding the fondant flowers to the side of the cake, put back in fridge as soon as you can so the frosting has time to set in order for the flowers not to fall off the cake.
For the top of the cake I rolled out white fondant and the cut out a shape to resemble Hello Kitty( I looked on line under clip art to get a better idea of how to draw the Hello Kitty) After the fondant Kitty was dry, I added the pink icing to the Kitty shirt. I also used the eatable food coloring pens you find at your local craft store to draw in the eyes and whiskers.
This was my first attempt at doing a birthday cake for my daughter Leah. I made this Hello Kitty cake using 5 Victoria sponge mixes from Tesco. I put it into a large 13" roasting tin as I didn't have any cake tins and covered using another tin the same size upside down in the oven for around 40 minutes.
I then cooled it, cut in half and spread seedless jam and creme inside. I coloured the icing pink then smoothed it all over with a long flat bread knife which I dipped in hot water to smooth out.
I had a postcard of Hello Kitty which I used on white icing and cut out with a sharp knife. I used a sweetie for the nose and liquorice eyes, I then outlined with black icing. I used pink/blue designer icing from Asda to go round the edge and for Kitty's bow. I then put rainbow drops all round the edge.
I took the picture before I wrote Leah's name on it, took me nearly six hours to make but was so worth it,my little girl and everybody who came to the party loved how it looked and tasted.
Having no experience with baking or cake decorating and no special tools for the job I don't think did too bad!
For my daughter's third birthday she requested a Hello Kitty party. I got online and was inspired by this website to create my own Hello Kitty cake because there is no such pan.
What I did was use a rectangular chocolate cake (1/4 sheet) bought from Wal-Mart (very dry, but I was short on time). I then used a sharp knife to cut out the shape of an oval for her head. With the leftover corners I made the ears and bow that I "glued" on with icing.
I used a star tip to decorate her head with white butter cream icing leaving space for her eyes to fill in with black icing. I sprinkled pink sparkly sugar over smooth white icing on the right ear to make the shape of a bow. A yellow gum drop for her nose and trimmed black licorice for her whiskers. I bought the Hello Kitty candles online and placed them opposite her bow.
My daughter and all the guests loved it (except the dryness) and I had a great time making it.
