My daughter’s love of cats was my inspiration for these two adorable felines! To make these two cat cakes, I used two 9″ pans. stacked on top of each other with homemade butter cream icing! (2 sticks butter, 2 Tlbs Milk, 1 tsp Vanilla, mix well and scrape sides, mix again while adding 4 cups powdered sugar! Easiest and best tasting butter cream! hands down!).
Mixed half the batch of icing with blue and the other half with orange. Using the star tip I piped the cat fur. This being the most difficult part as it takes a lot out of your hands and wrist to pipe so much. Then using homemade marshmallow fondant, I sculpted the face of the cats. Using a little white butter cream, pipe on the whiskers and eyelashes and voila, beautiful cats even a 12 year old will love!
My daughter has been an avid cat lover her entire life! These two cats were an inspiration for a book series by Erin Hunter, called Warrior Cats.
