I made this Hello Kitty cake for my daughter’s 4th birthday. I already had the Wilton animal crackers cake pan from making a cow cake for her 2nd birthday. I thought that the pan looked very similar to Hello Kitty’s head. I sliced off the raised nose portion of the cake.
I used different colored icing to make the eyes, nose, and hair bow. I used a star tip for most of it and cornstarch to smooth out eyes and nose. My daughter has a Hello Kitty video set in which Hello Kitty has a sister name Mimi. My daughter wanted both a Hello and Mimi Kitty cake.
Hello Kitty always wears a red hair bow and her sister always wears a yellow hair bow. I used a 6 in. round Wilton cake pan to make Mimi and split a cupcake in half for her ears. The remaining cupcakes were decorated with Hello Kitty faces using icing and various decorator sprinkles.
The whole project used 2 boxes of Duncan Hines cake mix and 3 tubs of DH frosting. I used gel food coloring for better color.
