Hello kitty head shaped cake?

Question Posted Tuesday September 6 2011, 7:56 pm

So this Saturday is my sister's 26th birthday and I want to make her a hello kitty face shaped cake!

For those of you that might not know what she looks like that's her! ^

Anyways so I went out to buy two one deep 9" round pan and one regular round 9" pan.

And frosting, and strawberry filling and fondant. That molding frosting.

So my initial plan was to bake the cake then freeze then carve into her headshape somehow.

Tips and ideas, I've never tried to do anythis like this I wanted it to be sortah 3d like on the top and ears but flat on bottom.

Hi there,

May I suggest, without any intended offence, that this is something you might have more luck perfecting without a looming deadline?

Were you aware that SanRio has issued a 3d hello kitty cake pan? If yes, is there any reason not to use it? If not, here is a link:

... and MANY party stores will carry this, if you are worried about getting it shipped in time.

I would suggest a couple changes, such as an alternate substance for the whiskers, such as sliced licorice, or whatever suits your fancy and that you look at what other people have done with hello kitty cakes:

... for inspiration.

The carving of a shape out of frozen cake isn't something most people will get even remotely close on their first try. I hope you do eventually master this, but I am worried you will be discouraged if you try to do it under pressure. This is why I would suggest getting the pan for this time, and perhaps another time down the road a bit, you could make another kitty cake using your newly honed skills. :-)

If you are still going to try carving this, may I suggest this link to several video tutorials for making your own Hello Kitty cake?

Good luck, and, if you don't mind sharing, would you please upload a picture of what you end up with so I can see if I helped? :-) Even if it turns out hilarious, it would still be fun to see.

P.S. I speak from experience when I talk about hilarious cakes. I have stories. ;-)

P.P.S. Even if you use the pre-made San Rio Pan... BAKE MORE THAN ONE CAKE. You have been warned. Again... I really wasn't kidding when I said I had some baking tales.
