Homemade Hello Kitty 1st Birthday Cake

Homemade Hello Kitty 1st Birthday Cake

I made a homemade Hello Kitty 1st birthday cake for my daughter's 1st birthday. I looked everywhere for a Hello Kitty shaped cake-pan, but could only find a 5 inch pan on eBay. I ordered it from Hong Kong anyway and was going to just use it as her individual cake, but it never showed up for over a month, way after the party. So here is what I did.

I baked 2 rectangular (Duncan Hines moist yellow cake), frosted and stacked them, then carved Hello Kitty's head shape out of them. I had a little trouble because the ears kept falling off, so maybe you can use a stiffer batter or freeze the cake before carving it. Then, I rolled out white fondant and covered the cake.

I dyed a small amount of fondant yellow for the nose, black for the eyes and whiskers, and pink for the bow. I rolled out the fondant and cut the shapes I wanted out with an exacto knife. I rolled a ball and flattened it for the nose and the center of the bow.

I stuck the fondant facial pieces to the cake just using a little water and it stuck really well. I have to mention this is only the second cake I have ever made in my life and both cakes I used fondant on, it was much easier to use fondant than I imagined. I also made my daughter a small #1 cake for her individual cake.

I loved making this Hello Kitty cake! To start I cut cardboard to the size of a 14in round cake pan. Then, I looked at a picture of Hello Kitty and drew her face onto the cardboard. Then I cut it out. I only ended up needing to cut a little off the top to make her ears and hairbow. I left the rest untouched.

I baked a 14in round white cake colored with hot pink food coloring. When it came out of the oven I let it cool and then laid my cardboard Hello Kitty on top of it. I used a knife to cut the shape of her face. I then crumb coated it with cream cheese frosting and let it sit in the fridge for a while. Next, I frosted the entire cake with cream cheese frosting and drew the face with my decorating bags and tips.

I designed a 3D Hello Kitty Cake for a 4 year old. I made a chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling. I used my gigantic cupcake cake pan for the body and the head was made using a mini pumpkin cake pan.

I made marshmallow fondant for the body of the cake which I placed over top after putting a layer of butter cream to "dirty ice" it first. I used chocolate dipping wafers for the eyes. I made the arms and feet out of rice krispie treats and attached them on with dowel rods that I bought at Dollarama.

This was a really fun cake to make..everyone enjoyed it, so I heard. I cut out flowers and some other decals to give it more character from the fondant. I actually have a couple more Hello Kitty cakes to do after people saw this one.
