This was the first new recipe not already on the blog that I created for my book, "The Hello Kitty Baking Book", and I while I have made many, many Hello Kitty cakes, this was my first Keroppi themed dessert. And I thought it came out adorable!
As described in the book, I baked two 8-inch chocolate cakes, sliced them in half horizontally, and then used a Keroppi template to cut out the shape of the cakes. (The Keroppi template is included in the book!)
Then I whipped up a batch of minty whipped cream to fill in between each layer of cake.
After frosting the entire cake, I piped on Keroppi's details (details in the book), and piped stars to cover the rest of the cake.
When cut, the striking layers of chocolate cake and green minty filling are revealed.
Moist, refreshingly minty, and delicious, this cake is a keeper!
