This is the Hello Kitty cake I made for my daughter’s 5th Birthday.
I used my basic cake recipe to make two cakes. I had decided to make a two tier cake with a fondant Hello Kitty on the top.
I covered both cakes and the cake board in pink fondant icing. Then I used blue, green and yellow icing to cut out circles in three different sizes. I placed these randomly over the two cakes. I made the Hello Kitty myself and bought a number five candle. When making a tiered cake you need to place supports in the lower cake so that it doesn’t sink under the weight of the top cake. As these cakes where fairly small, the bottom was 7 inches, the top 6 inches, I used plastic drinking straws for support. For heavier or larger cakes I would use dowling rods.
