They were perfect - really yummy and great to cut and work with. I kept one layer whole and used a photocopy of Hello Kitty's head to cut out the shape from the other cake. I placed that on top, then I crumb coated the whole thing in buttercream using this great recipe... (especially great if you really want a good, bright white).
After tinting the frosting I then began piping the top white part first, using a star-shaped tip, then the pink part, and lastly the bow. To mark where the bow was I cut the bow out of the original image I cut around and placed in on the cake so I could pipe around it. When I was ready to apply the purple I peeled the bow off and piped in the space.
I finished it off with some liqourice straps for details. I used a Wilton black gel pen to fill in the liqourice border for the eyes and a yellow one to fill in the liquorice straps that made the border for the nose.
Just before serving I wrote my daughter's name and "Hello Kitty!" down the sides of the serving board, and added candles.
I knew that I wanted to make a Hello Kitty cake but I also had never succeeded in creating a good cake for my daughter. So I needed to come up with a design that wasn't too complicated, so I went to the store to see what I could find. I decided I would make the cake square instead of buying an expensive pan.
After going up and down the baking and candy isles this is what I used. Purple jellybeans for the eyes, a yellow one for the nose, mini sweet tarts for the bow and black twizlers cut down to be thin and short for the whiskers. I used pink frosting from a tub and the white was one of those cans with the interchangeable tops. I printed an outline of her head and put it all together to make my daughter favorite cake yet!
*As a side note, to get the right shape I cut out the head and put white icing around the outline and pressed it onto the cake with the pink already done. When I pulled the paper off the white outline was there! Yay!!! I did a double layer cake and 2 tubs of pink was almost not enough, just fyi.
I was asked to make a Hello Kitty cake for a neighbor's daughter's 11th birthday. Easy peasy!
I made a chocolate 1/2 sheet cake and chocolate ganache filling (she LOVES chocolate)! The cake was cut in half and layered. The chocolate ganache is super simple, just bittersweet chocolate blocks and heavy whipping cream. Bring whipping cream to a boil and pour over chocolate pieces in bowl. The butter cream frosting was Wilton's recipe. I used the star tip and it worked out great.
