Is there anything cuter than a Hello Kitty cake? I'm sharing a cake design and a topper tutorial with you that is two times better. Why? Because there are two cuties on top having a tea party!
Here are some photos of the cake design to spark your creativity. I made the textured sides using a #352 Wilton leaf tip and my favorite Italian meringue buttercream. The cake is chocolate buttermilk. The filling is buttercream with Strawberry puree, then topped with fresh Strawberries. Use your favorite recipe combinations.
All the links to the recipes are at the bottom of this page.
In the video you will see how to make this adorable cake with the gumpaste cake topper. The buttercream ruffles and the cake elements added to the cake are in fast motion. Enjoy!

If you love the look of soft pretty ruffles on a cake, then you will adore this. I made two Hello Kitties but you can do this with one.. Make buttercream flowers instead of the gumpaste if you prefer.
Lettering with cupcakes to display the name of the birthday girl is optional. For a 5 year old it's extra special to have your name displayed like this. Evynn took notice of these and proudly arranged them in order on the cake table.
I made lots of little gumpaste flowers with various flower cutters. The lettering is made using Tappits and gumpaste. You can see the tappits tutorial here.
Plan ahead and make all your gumpaste pieces first, they will need at least 12-24 hours to dry before moving them onto the cake. (The letters and little flowers dry very quickly)
Our grandaughter Evynn is a HUGE fan. She turned FIVE and guess what cake she ordered? If you've followed me for a while you know that my forte is not usually gumpaste figures. But I had soooo much fun making these.
It is an easy figurine to create comparative to some of the "sculptures" that we have all seen. I fear I may have the "bug" now. I can't wait to make more gumpaste figurines. Stay tuned LOL
