My adult daughter still loves Hello Kitty but is not a fan of cake, so I decided to make her a Hello Kitty Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake.
I made the cookie using my regular dough and putting it in a pizza pan. Allow an inch for the dough to expand (don't put it right up to the edge of the pan. Trust me on this!)
Hello Kitty was made of fondant with a rice crispy square squished to form her basic body shape under it. I put it on a shish kabob stick to give more stability. I added glasses and Converse tennis shoes because my daughter wears them.
Everything is edible except her glasses (made of black wire) and the stetchy string used to string the beads of the necklace...oh, and the ribbon.
About the necklace: I made the different colored balls of fondant (roll a "snake" and cut even sized piece off to help get the balls the same size.) I brushed each ball with pearl dust (Hobby Lobby) to give it the pearl look. Then I strung them using a needle onto the stretch jewelry thread.
I made two 10" circle Victoria sponges for this Homemade Hello Kitty Birthday Cake Idea and coloured the mixture so it was dark pink. I sandwiched the two sponges together with strawberry jam and butter icing. I then placed the sponge onto a 10" cake board.
I had printed off a picture of a Hello Kitty head which I used as a template to cut the cake into shape. Once the head was shaped I rolled out a pack of readymade fondant icing (Tesco's). I added a thin layer of strawberry jam to the top of the sponge before placing the fondant over the top of the cake. I then cut around the overhang leaving 1/2 inch to 'tuck in' the icing at the edge of the cake.
For the bow, eyes, whiskers and nose I simply mixed some liquid food colouring with the cut offs of the fondant and shaped them and positioned them like on the template. I also used some cookie cutters to make my daughter's name and place it at the front of the cake board.
This cake was really simple to make for someone with very limited baking skills, tasted delicious and my daughter loved it.
This Hello Kitty Castle Cake was inspired by my 3 year old niece who loves Hello kitty. Also I got a few idea's from the website!
I started by using 2 10in round cakes for bottom tier, the top tier is a 6 in cake, also made some cupcakes. I covered them all with white butter cream. The bow on top was made with gum paste. I used 12 ice cream cones dipped in white chocolate for the towers and placed the cupcakes on top. The castle door was created using pink wafer cookies.
The Hello Kitty rings and Hello Kitty figurines were purchased at Toys R us. The hearts were little cakes decorating candies. The "grass" was piped using the Betty Crocker decorating icing in the can. The flowers were silk flowers I bought for $1.
I had so much fun making this cake and the big smile on my niece's face made it even more worth it!
