My daughter Mia turned 4 and wanted a Hello kitty theme. I had the party at the park and the weather was gorgeous! Everything was pink. We had a beautiful Hello Kitty pinata. We had a blast! I decided to go with a 2 tier round cake and of course, PINK!!
Both tiers were multi-coloured rainbow layers. I had four layers to represent the 4 years. It was a simple vanilla cake with added extract to make the vanilla flavor stick out.
I baked the layers separately and left to cool. I then stacked them while sandwiching each layer with raspberry jam and vanilla ready made icing (Betty Crocker). I then covered the cake with jam to allow fondant to stick. I colored the fondant in 2 shades of pink.
Once both tiers were covered I cut out the Hello Kitty face and placed it on the top tier. I then decorated the rest of the cake with flowers and hearts.
I loved making this cake and Mia helped me do all the heart cut outs!! She did an excellent job!
I made this Hello Kitty cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday. I found a picture I wanted to use on the internet and just enlarged it to fit on a 9 x 13 inch cake.
I just cut and shaped it using a small knife until I got the shape I wanted. Then I frosted it as usual and made the flower and the bow out of marshmallow fondant which is much tastier than the store bought stuff. The whiskers are black licorice, which I had a hard time making them stay put, so it was the last thing I put on the cake before serving.
You can't see, but to finish it off, I piped frosting around the bottom edge and sprinkled pink edible glitter around that. I think the hardest thing was picking out the right colors to make for her dress and undershirt since you can find Hello Kitty in so many colors now.
I like to make our kids’ birthday cakes out of cupcakes so that they are quick and easy to serve. I bake a batch of 18-24 cupcakes. I can bake half of them chocolate and half vanilla cake to suit the kids’ tastes. I placed them on a cake board in whatever configuration I think will work for the cake. Sometimes I have to shave a little off the top if any of the cupcake tops get very rounded.
I frosted this grouping of cupcakes with buttercream so it won’t fall between the cracks. I used a whitener to make sure the frosting was nice and white and not yellowed. I used a toothpick to draw Hello Kitty into the white buttercream before outlining it with the black piped frosting.
I loved doing the Hello Kitty 4th Birthday Cake because the art is basically a doodle and nothing too technical.
My niece loves Hello Kitty, so I made her this cake. First I baked a 12 inch round chocolate cake. I then froze it. This is where I cheated a little, I printed an outline of Hello Kitty from the internet. Set it on top of the frozen cake, and cute it out. LOL.
I covered the cake with fondant. The eyes and nose are jellybeans and the whiskers are black Twizzlers. I made a bow out of pink fondant, and there you go. A cute Hello Kitty cake.
My dad is an artist and made this cake for my birthday last year. He used regular store bought funfetti cake mix, made two layers putting frosting in between. He designed the cake free hand with home made frosting and food coloring to create all the colors!
He used different frosting tips to create texture. He also used rainbow sprinkles to add a little extra something! All of the colors came out so vibrant and the cake was a huge hit! I loved it!
