Hello Kitty Cake!!!

by Diane Shankles
(Chattanooga, TN)

I made this Hello Kitty Cake for my granddaughter....she just turned 5. I decorated cakes years ago for my children, and well...they grew up and I stopped baking.

Rediscovering Baking and Decorating

I just re discovered it again about a year ago, and I have found my passion. I LOVE baking. I watch every cake decorating show I can find, I have joined ICES (International Cake Exploration Societé), and...WOW, I am going to the ICES convention in Charlotte, NC in August. My dream is to open my own bakery.

How I made My Hello Kitty Cake

My Cake is a three tier (only my 3rd) yellow cake, covered in pink buttercream, then draped in white
Satin Ice fondant. Kitty is make of gumpaste, but next time I will make her of Rice Crispy treats, covered in modeling chocolate and fondant, which will make her much more sturdy. She is dressed as a ballerina, and doing a split...LOL....my grandbaby is taking ballet, instant inspiration.

White Chocolate Hearts (from the Wilton melts and a heat mold) and gumpaste flowers and dots finish it out. All in all, the cake took about 6 hours (not including baking time).

Shaped Pans

I also had the Hello Kitty Cakes that I made from the shaped pan on either side. I am including a picture of one of those, because unfortunately my camera quit on me before I could get pictures of all three together.

I hope you like!!!

oh...I have started a website also - one more step in my dream of doing this for a living. Diane I love your entry. It's inspiring and your cake is so well done. I wish you all the best in your new rediscovery and cake adventures

I luv the decorations on this cake. I like the huge pearls around the borders and the colors are just perfect. The story is very inspirational, its amazing how we sometimes stray away from what we luv and come back to it years later at full force. Good luck to you!!"
