Hello kitty cake, a perfect thing to make on a birthday for hello kitty fans.

A cute white cat with a little bow on her head is all you are going to need in everything! So why not a hello kitty cake then? It is an easy one to make so let’s get started!
To make a hello kitty cake, you have to choose a design at first. You can make it with a single layer of cake. All you have to be concerned about is the decoration of the cake which you can do with regular icing or fondant or you can even add a cake topper. So choose any of your favorite cake recipes and make one of them to make this simplest type of hello kitty cake.
As a beginner, this will help you a lot to do something more creative. You will need to cut a paper measuring the amount of your cake tin. Then draw the shape of a head of hello kitty to fit as big as possible on the paper. Then you have to cut out the pattern and lay the pattern over the cake. Now add the bow, nose and eyes by doing the necessary adjustments.
Now use a knife wiped with warm water and cut the cake by placing the paper on it to have it in the exact measurement. You will get a chance to taste the cake by trying the remaining pieces. Now smooth the very edges of the cake so that it can get a softer look after being iced. Now cover the cake with a thin layer of buttercream.
Now you have to roll out a sugar paste or white fondant which will cover the whole cake and down the side. Smooth the fondant with your palms and then a smoother tool to position the cake on the cake board or a late with little royal icing. You will need some black sugar paste or fondant to cut out the two eyes and a small amount of yellow icing rolled into a ball for the nose.
You can also add pink instead of yellow if you are having a pink theme. You also have to roll out black fondant or sugar paste into thin strips and leave them to dry for overnight so that they can hold their shape and protrude out over the edge of the cake. Next, you have to make the bow where you will need two oval pieces of pink icing. Each piece will be folded in half and bunched up in the middle.
You have to position a ball of pink sugar paste on top where the two ovals meet and this will help to hide the join. Stick it to the cake with a little royal icing and roll up some baking paper to slip a piece into each bow to hold it a little open allowing it to dry in that position. Leave it overnight for best results but you can also remove it after few hours.
And this is how easily you can make a hello kitty cake at home! This is one simple recipe where you are going to make the head of this cute cat only. If you want to make the whole body, you can plan to make one by using fondant and required shapes. You can also make the whole body of hello kitty in this way but just adding more cakes and shapes to draw with.
As hello kitty is a girly thing, you can always add pink to it anytime or anywhere. You can make a pink leopard or zebra print cake and draw a hello kitty on top of it. You can make it wear a glass to make a cake for something who is a bit nerd. You can also make a graduate hello kitty by making it wear the outfit.
