Hello Kitty Cake

Hello Kitty Birthday CakeMiss Magoo turned 5!  I can’t believe how quickly my babies are growing up!  For her birthday party, Miss Magoo asked for a Hello Kitty cake.  I had made a Hello Kitty cake for her 3rd birthday, and apparently she loved that one.  But she wanted me to make it with the Simply Delicious Strawberry Cake recipe from last year.

So the 3 year old birthday cake I did as a chocolate sheet cake, since she wanted a chocolate cake.  Only then I was left trying to figure out how to make a white cat.  I finally decided to frost it in white frosting and then draw Hello Kitty on top of the cake.  I simply printed a picture of Hello Kitty and traced that with black frosting.  Then I cut the smaller pieces out and traced them as well, and filled in spots with colored gel frosting. I cut a piece of yellow Starburst for the nose, and used the black frosting for the eyes.

So this year I wanted it to be a little different, so I decided to use round cake pans to make just Hello Kitty’s face.

This cake required 3 rounds, so I doubled the recipe and made 3 rounds and put the rest of the batter into cupcake pans.

Once the cakes were cooled, I simply cut one of the rounds into sixths, and used 2 triangle pieces stacked on top of each other so the ears were the same height as the rest of the cake.  That left 2 pieces, which of course I had to sample to make sure they were safe to eat!

I made the frosting the same as for the Simply Delicious Strawberry Cake, but with no strawberries.  Instead I added in enough milk to make it the desired consistency.

I used Mega m&ms for the eyes and nose this year, and Cherry Tootsie Rolls to make the bow.

I don’t think it turned out as cute as the 3 year old birthday cake, but Miss Magoo loved it!  And really, that’s all that matters right?  And it doesn’t hurt that it was absolutely delicious!  I wanted to take a picture of the cut cake, but there wasn’t any left!

Do you make birthday cakes for your family members, or buy them?

I just love that cake! I know when my girls were little they would've been over the moon for something so adorable! Now, they're the ones who would be making cakes like this for their friends. lol I make my kids cakes, but they're just the rectangle cakes. I suppose I should step up my game. =)

Thanks, Mimi! She was so excited by it! And the look on her face makes it worth the time and effort-- but I totally don't blame you for the rectangle cakes (they taste just as good!)
