Along with the purple Hello Kitty birthday cake that I made for my daughter's 3rd birthday last year, I also made these mini cupcakes for her class birthday party at preschool.
First I made mini chocolate cupcakes, and then piped a Hello Kitty face on each one with cream cheese frosting. I used a large round tip to pipe an oval for the face, and a leaf tip to pipe the ears. And then used a small round tip for the eyes, nose, and whiskers.
Boy, have these come a long way since the first ones that I made for her one-year birthday party!
This time instead of piping the bows, I used multicolored heart shaped confetti sprinkles (and just picked out all the purple ones!)
They turned out to be a big hit at her class party. And even the boys liked the Hello Kitty favors!
You can now find my recipe for Hello Kitty Mini Cupcakes in my new book, "The Hello Kitty Baking Book"! Enjoy!
