I made this Ni Hao Kai Lan Birthday cake for my daughter for her birthday. Everything was cut out by hand, with the exception of the flowers. I had a picture up of the character and cut things out one by one. You will need to cut out a sun, the character, green grassy hills, the tree and the flowers.
I think this was the cake that stressed me out the most and was the most work. The most important thing to me is that my daughter LOVED it. The party guests loved it as well. It always make all the work feel worth while when people gush over the cakes. Makes the stress and the cost worth it!! I have been making my kids birthday cakes since their first birthday and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am a mom of two with a full time job who does the occasional cake on the side. I am self taught and have much to learn. If you want to learn there are tons of step by step videos on you tube. Michaels and Joanns also have beginning cake decorating classes. All you need is creativity and patience!!
Good luck out there.
