I started this Hello Kitty Cake by stacking 2 9-inches round cakes, and putting a layer of butter cream in between. I crumb coated the cakes with butter cream, smoothed the icing, and chilled the cake. I then covered the cake with store bought fondant that I tinted pink.
The Hello Kitty image is also made out of fondant. I printed a picture of Hello Kitty from the computer and used it as a template to create the image. I surrounded Hello Kitty with fondant cutout flowers, with a sugar pearl center. I also used some edible pink sparkle dust to accent the flowers.
I trimmed the cake with a ribbon of white fondant, and also covered that in flowers. I used tinted fondant to write "Happy Birthday" on the cake board. I made this cake upon request for a friend's teenage daughter.
I love making Hello Kitty cakes as there's so many possibilities with them and they are so very girly. This one I made for my friend's little girl and she asked for bright and groovy. I looked through some pictures on the internet and adapted them to what you see in the final outcome.
The cake was vanilla sponge with strawberry jam and vanilla butter cream. I covered the cake in roll-out. The final touch on this cake was glitter! Lots of edible glitter! The cake was a hit with my friend's little girl and she didn't want anyone to cut it up! I don't think there has been a year in the last 4 years where I haven't been asked to make a Hello Kitty cake as she is so popular at the moment.
I made this homemade Hello Kitty 2 tier cake for my daughter's 6th birthday in December 2011. She is madly in love with Hello Kitty.
I had never attempted a multi-tiered cake before. The cake is just an average everyday butter cake. I did add strawberry essence and strawberry Nesquik into the mixture because my daughter wanted her cake to taste like a strawberry milkshake. I bought white fondant, 1.5 kg and coloured it myself with Wilton gels.
I used wooden dowels to support the top tier of the cake. I made all the decorations by myself using left over fondant from covering the cake. I downloaded Hello Kitty colouring pages, printed and traced the images onto the fondant.
I hope you all like it. I am very proud of this cake.
The Hello Kitty Cake was an 11x15! I found a picture online and printed it off and piped it onto wax paper with piping gel!
I baked, cooled, leveled and crumb coated and then final coated the top only being that I was going add stripes to the sides! The image was then put on top of the cake and then outlined (tip #3) and filled (tip #18), well I filled then outline, I think it looks better!
After filling all the parts of the picture with stars I then outlined the areas with tip #3. The sides were piped with tip #18 around the perimeter of the cake!
I baked 2 round cakes for this Hello Kitty Cake. This is a vanilla chiffon cake (I got the recipe from the net). Using a sharp bread knife, I curved the cake using patterns I drew on a wax paper. The frosting was all made of butter cream. The eyes are a choco coated peanut from the grocery, whiskers are just pretzel sticks. For the nose and bow, I melted white chocolate and colored it with food coloring.
I'm so proud of this cake because this is the first character cake I made and sold!
