This Hello Kitty Cake is a triple fudge chocolate two layer cake with buttercream frosting and marshmallow fondant made for my daughter's 4th birthday. It was really easy to make. Marshmallow fondant is much easier to use and make and tastes much better then regular fondant.
I made the marshmallow fondant the night before. Baked and frosted the cake. Took a small piece of fondant and set aside, then took the rest and colored it pink, rolled out and placed over frosted cake. The remaining fondant I rolled and cut out a kitty shape, with the remaining pieces I rolled eyes, a nose and whiskers. Painted them with gel food coloring mixed with water. And did the same for the writing.
After it was all assembled I piped buttercream around the edges and sprinkled with black and pink edible glitter.
I made this Hello Kitty cake for my 6 year old sister. She really wanted a Hannah Montana cake, but I had no idea how to do that! So I made her this one, and she ended up loving it! I used cherry chip boxed cake mix, and home made butter cream icing.
(1 cup butter, 1 cup Crisco, 6-7 cups sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp milk. My secret is whipping it forever in my stand mixer to give it a more smooth finish and it tastes wonderful, not too sweet!)
I used a small cup to outline Kitty's head; I lightly pushed it in twice, side by side to make an oval shape.
I really liked the colors I used in the cake! It was very fun to make!
I made this Hello Kitty Cake for my niece on her 5th birthday. The entire cake is edible, less the wire for the balloon. The hardest part of this cake was the million's of little 3 piece flowers to cut out and place (just a note: it helps to place the flowers if they remain soft).
The chair was molded out of rice crispy and fondant laid over. I created Hello Kitty by using fondant. The cupcakes were simple little treats for kids to take home. This has become a tradition for my niece and nephews birthdays. It gets the whole family involved: Mom bakes the cakes, my sister rolls out the fondant (I'm really horrible with that part of it) and I put the cake together.
I gave her a Hello Kitty cup filled with extra toys and goodies.
I made this cake using box cake mixes, home-made marshmallow fondant colored with Wilton gel paste, and the icing is home-made almond buttercream. The inside was made by coloring the cake mix with the same Wilton gel paste in small amounts and pouring on top of each other in the pan which makes a rainbow of colors. This makes a very happy surprise!! The decorations are a Hello Kitty figure from Wal-Mart, Hello Kitty rings and sugar shamrocks from a local cake supply shop, and jelly beans. The shamrocks were a request by the parent since her daughter's birthday was on St. Patrick's Day. I used them as leaves for the "flowers" just to incorporate them into her cake.
