Hello Kitty Cake - Full Body
Hello Kitty seems to be extremely popular amongst my friends. I have made Hello Kitty cakes for several birthdays as well as a baby shower now. This time around, the recipient requested a full body Hello Kitty. This cake requires minimal fondant decorations; however, don't let that fool you. It took me a bit of time trying to figure out how to exactly cut out the clothes to cover the fondant body in 2d fashion. Also, I actually made the body and head separately and placed the two cakes together on the board at the end. I don't know whether that was smarter or not but it worked out for me luckily.
I got to try out a new recipe combo on this cake as the birthday girl wanted mocha cake and buttercream frosting. I used this tried and true recipe for cupcakes from Brown Eyed Baker which thankfully converted nicely to cake as well.
