Hawaiian Hello Kitty Cake

Who doesn’t love Hello Kitty? Seriously. She is so cute and those two beady eyes and nose… Whats not to love?

    For this Hello Kitty cake I layered chocolate cake and homemade strawberry frosting to build up the height and her shape. When it was the shape of an circle with ears I started shaving down the sides with a serrated knife. Then I frosted it with my homemade butter cream (recipe here) frosting and made it as smooth as possible. I then put the cake in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden it up a bit. 

I frosted it a second time, rolled out a piece of fondant (large enough to cover the entire cake and about 1/4” thick) and placed it over the top. I smoothed it out with my hands as needed and trimmed away the excess with a paring knife. I added gel food coloring to a small portion of fondant for the pink hibiscus flower and yellow for the center and added them. A small amount of black was made for her eyes and whiskers.
           She turned out so cute it was hard to cut and serve!
