Saturday Sweets Hello Kitty Cake

For Todays' Saturday Sweets, I would like to show you my daughter Shelby's Hello Kitty Cake. 

Hello Kitty Cake Girls Birthday 5

As you may have noticed, I'm not the biggest character cake fan.  The only other character cake I made was the Spongebob one (click here to see).  I don't know what it is, it's just not my decorating style.  BUT, when you have kids, obviously they are going to ask for a character cake here and there.  I always try to steer them in another direction, but sometimes you just have to give in.  

I ended up adding a top border right before the party (see below).  It just looked unfinished before I added it.

This was a white cake with raspberry mousse filling.  I think that's my favorite combo.  Covered with Buttercream with fondant accents.

I hope you are having a nice weekend so far.  I have a bachelorette party tonight (I haven't been to one of those in years!) and I'm going to the Twilight movie tomorrow at Mall of America....VIP Section.  They have waiters/waitresses that serve food and drinks and there are leather reclining seats and tables  AND it's 21 and older.  So fun - can't wait!

  4. I hear you about character cakes, lol. Hello Kitty is so cute, though, and your cake looks great, as always :) I loved going to those Sanrio stores when I was a kid and getting all sorts of HK accessories.

    Have an AWESOME time at Breaking Dawn! That VIP section sounds like the way to go if you're going to see anything in the theater. I don't know yet when we'll go, probs once some of the hype has died down. We've got a decent little home theater setup and we're kind of spoiled on being able to pause whenever we need to, watch from the comfort of the sofa, and not be around people who insist on using their cell phones during the movie anyway... grr. (I almost got into a fight with a chick who kept turning her phone on in front of us during the first Breaing Dawn... :/)

    1. The movie was pretty good. Not one of my favorites, but it was worth going to. And the VIP section was perfect. And it's never really packed....probably because we are going to a teenager movie. Your home theatre sounds awesome!

    One of my friends is doing a Hello Kitty party for her soon to be 3 year old. Too bad you can't mail one of these up here, 'cuz it'd be so perfect!

    1. :) I have to make another one next week for my brother's wedding. I don't make them as often anymore so I get pretty nervous. This one was pretty easy. How about you try!!! :)
