For my daughter's 2nd birthday I wanted to use two of her favorite things in her cake. Hello Kitty, and duckies. Lucky for me I found the perfect Hello Kitty Ducky Cake!
For the cakes I baked two 10 inch rounds, then leveled, iced and covered them in blue marshmallow fondant.
I then made an easy icing mixture of powdered sugar, a tablespoon of Crisco and a few tablespoons of water. I beat this for a good 5 minutes until it was fluffy, then made the different colors using gel coloring.
After stippling on the Hello Kitty with a clean pin, I traced it and filled in with the icings. I did a few layers of the yellow and orange to raise it up a bit, and made the beak and feet stand out further than the yellow body and face. I also added a few bubbles against Hello Kitty to make them stand out more.
This is one of the cutest cakes I've made, and I have to say it was the simplest as well!
Last Year I made this Hello Kitty First Birthday Cake for my daughter's First birthday. It was my first attempt at a carved cake and I think I did pretty well. I copied a photo of Hello Kitty and attached it to cardboard. From there I cut the cardboard into the shape of Hello Kitty's Head then I used the cardboard as a template for shaving the cake into Hello Kitty's Head. Lots of frosting and a star tip later we got the fur looking real.
For the base of the cake I just used rounds. As you see my handwriting is not the best I would suggest trying stencils if the writing is of concern. I really enjoyed all the work I did with this cake and my daughter though she was tired when it was time to eat really did enjoy the big Kitty Cake and the little kitties on top are dancing ones so Samantha's cake sang and danced. Hope it gives you all and ideas.
My daughter Morgann loves Hello Kitty, so when I planned her 3rd birthday, the theme was a no brainer!
For this homemade Hello Kitty cupcakes birthday cake I baked up a few dozen vanilla cupcakes and went wild on the decorations! For each Hello Kitty face, I rolled out some pure white fondant and sprinkled with granulated sugar for "sparkle". I used a small tulip shaped cookie cutter (flattening out the middle "point" to make a cat head-shaped cutter) to make each face.
I rolled pieces of black fondant thin for the whiskers and formed the bows out of bits of pink fondant. I used decorating gels in black and yellow for the eyes and nose. I frosted the cupcakes in white buttercream and piped with a star tip yellow and pink tinted buttercream around the edges. I placed one fondant Kitty face on each cupcake and to finish added flower sprinkles on the frosting border.
These were a huge hit!

This Hello Kitty Fondant Birthday Cake was made using the Hello Kitty pan which I highly recommend for this cake! I used a box of cake mix and followed the directions except for the last 10 min, I turned down the oven to 325 so the cake wouldn't get too overdone on the top / sides.
I torted, added a moistening simple syrup, filled it with butter cream and lightly iced it on the outside. I made homemade marshmallow fondant and covered the cake gently pressing the shape while I formed the fondant around all parts of the cake. I used Wilton oval cutouts for the eyes and nose which are fondant. I free handed the fondant pieces for the bow, placed them on the spot and smoothed it with my finger.
I added pink disco dust to the bow before lightly spraying the entire cake with PME edible luster spray. The whiskers were gum paste.
