This Hello Kitty Cake Idea a friend and I made for another friend's twenty third birthday. She just wanted Hello Kitty on the cake, but just to make it harder, I decided to shape it as her head.
I couldn't find my large pan for some reason, so I actually started with a pizza pan and decided to do two layers. Two cake mixes were used, one container of whipped icing, and some white fondant.
I wanted to go with the pink and sweet theme, so I substituted some of the water in the mix with strawberry yogurt, sliced strawberries for the middle of the cake, and even used the juice the berries made in the bowl in the icing.
After cutting the cake to shape using a free handed guide, I quickly iced the bottom, covered it in thin strawberry slices, sandwiched it between the layers, and covered in it in the now light pink icing and then finally the thinly rolled fondant. More strawberries were halved and then placed around the edges for a finished look, and the face was outlined in some black gel icing and the nose and bow were made out of fondant.
It turned out quite tasty and very moist! Which I was proud of since I'm not much of a baker at all. Hope you like it!
I made this Hello Kitty Princess Cake for my granddaughter's 4th birthday. I found the picture on a website selling wall decals. It is a Pillsbury "Funfetti" cake mix made in a 9 x 13 pan. I used a white decorator frosting made with 3/4 cup Crisco, 2 t. clear vanilla, 1 t. salt, 1 bag sifted C&H powdered sugar, and boiling hot water to spreading consistency. No butter or margarine. I've used this recipe for over 30 years and my family really likes it. It also makes a true white frosting when you use clear vanilla.
I used Wilton neon food coloring and purchased black frosting. I used small and medium writing and star tubes. I enlarged and printed the picture, cut it out and traced around it onto the cake. I used a large sewing needle to pierce holes within the design. I used the black frosting to "draw" the picture and filled it in mostly with a small star tubes. My granddaughter LOVED this cake.

This is mine and my daughters first attempt at a 2 tier cake for my grandaughter's birthday in January. Our first effort was two cakes at the end of December for my nieces and enjoyed it so much we decided to do this one too. We really were learning as we went along, both throwing in our own ideas. All the pieces added to the cake were made from fondant and were all edible. I made the hello kitty a couple of nights before just as a trial but it turned out so well i kept it in a sealed container until the day we were icing the cake and it had had hardened enough to be able to handle it better and then i just used a cocktail stick to hold it onto the cake. Everyone loved it and we had so many compliments and even a few orders for cakes over the coming weeks. Next task is a car cake so watch this space.
