To go along with the Hello Kitty mini cupcakes that I made for Melodie's first birthday party at daycare, I made a two-layer cake in the shape of Hello Kitty's head (thanks to this awesome cake pan!) for a small family gathering at my mom's house. The bottom layer was chocolate cake, the top layer was strawberry cake, and it was filled and frosted with cream cheese frosting.
Unfortunately, the strawberry cake layer turned out very dense and heavy - not what I was going for. I had used Martha Stewart's strawberry cupcake recipe, which turned out great for cupcakes here and here, but I guess it is a battter that is not meant for a whole cake.
In any case, I proceeded to decorate Hello Kitty, until she was completely covered in piped stars.
And in the end, Melodie loved her cake anyway :)
*** Update: I made this cake again several months later for a bridal shower. You can find the post here!
Awesome job! That is simply precious.ReplyDelete
