Hello Kitty Cake by thesearejessicakes Hello Kitty Cake by thesearejessicakes
It's my cousin's birthday today, and she wanted a Hello Kitty cake. Originally, she wanted me to make a red version of the Hello Kitty cake I made in October, but as I don't like repeating cakes I asked her if this design was okay, and pointed out that I had ensured that there were still red and white stripes on the cake.

I really enjoyed making this cake, because the past few cakes I've done have either been cupcakes, or I've been copying someone else's cake. I don't like either thing, I find them boring. My depression has also rebounding, so just getting started on cake is ridiculously difficult, and this cake really helped me find my passion for cake decorating again. Just in time, too, as I have a mammoth of a SuperWho cake to make next week, and that's terrifying me.

Anyway, it's white chocolate cake and I'm so happy with the finished result.

I'd love it if you could take the time to write a critique - focusing on both the cake itself AND how I've presented it to dA through the photographs. I'm pretty shabby with food photography, and it's an area I'd love to focus on more in the future. It doesn't matter if you don't have a Premium Membership - Anyone can /write/ a critique now!

Just wondering how did youmake flags?
Second you did a beautiful job decorating :)
I bet she ate the cake gladly but not before asking it if the hello kitty was a toy lol.
if you have time i make cakes as well and got plenty of stuff to look at, they aren't the best because i only work as a chasier and im lucky to get hours a week.

I used fondant and petal dusts. I rolled the fondant out thin, and cut the triangles out. Then I glued them to the cake before making a thin strip of fondant for the top of the bunting. I'd wait for that line of flags to dry, then I'd use vodka and petal dusts to make edible paint (the vodka completely evaporates)to paint the patterns on. Once they were dry, I'd repeat the process until they were all don.
Thank you so much!
Her mum didn't let her near it, haha. They watch me make things often enough to know that it was definitely fondant, though.

Your stuff isn't half bad. With practice you could be awesome!

Ahaha. Don't worry, I plan to make more cakes! Thank you! <3

Awe thank you. <3 I wish I could make aweosme cakes but it takes money I don't have I only make 7.84 an hour :(
but I did just make a simple graduation cake I absolutly love and the tassel was made out of fondant at least lol. I have great ideas but it takes money to make something great ya know. I do all this cake stuff for fun, ive never been paid to make any of them.

This is so cute. I love the bunting it adds just enough colours without being excessively fussy. Has a nice sense of celebration to it
