For most of you that follow me know I love helping out a charity that bring birthday's to homeless kids. If you're ever wanting to help out a great Charity help out Birthday Dreams. I signed up for a Hello Kitty Cake. I found a few designs googling and one on Betty Crocker but I just kind of winged it. My only problem was the little girl requested chocolate cake which is hard with white frosting ... lol but I made it work. It's not one of my prettiest cakes but I think it was cute.
What you need:
2 Baked Cakes
Frosting (I use my Sturdy Butter Cream)
Black Food Gel
Yellow Modeling Chocolate (or piece of candy)
Black Modeling Chocolate (or pieces of candy)
Pink Modeling Chocolate (or candies)
If you haven't made Modeling Chocolate here is the recipe:
12oz Candy Melts (In Pink and White)
1/4 Cup light corn Syrup
Melt your Candy Melts in microwave (mine takes about 2 minutes). Stir them to become smooth and add the corn syrup. It will become thick and form a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and let it sit out and dry. Takes a few hours or over night is best. (Alexis note: I found to roll this out use a little powder sugar (like you would do with flour), also you have to kneed it a little like you would dough to make it easy to roll out).
I made Hersheys Perfectly Chocolate Cake that I doubled and made a 10 inch cake and a 8 inch cake. The 8 inch cake I cut off about 1/3 of the top and made ears that I then attached to my 10 inch cake with frosting. I would recommend using white cake it's easier to frost then chocolate cake. I outlined the cake with black glitter food gel (Wilton). For the nose I made a oval of yellow modeling Chocolate. For the eyes I made two oval's and placed them in the middle. For the whiskers I used black twizzlers that I cut in half, 3 on each side. For the bow I made two ovals and one circle and just ran with it. It actually went together really quickly.
