This is my second attempt at making a Hello Kitty cake at the request of a friend for her daughters birthday. I like this one much better than the one I did two years ago. http://nomemade-cakesandcookies.blogspot.com/2010/08/hello-kitty-cake.html
I baked 3 layers using a 11x15 inch baking pan (1/3 sheet cake). You could make a slightly smaller Hello Kitty and bake two layers using 9x13 pan.
I used a Hello Kitty clip art as a template to cut out the cake shape.
For this particular cake I used 2 layers of Strawberry cake and the middle with Chocolate cake with Strawberrry Jam filling. Crumb coat a thin layer of butter cream frosting and then added rolled fondant.
Bow, eyes, nose are all fondant. Whiskers are toothpicks covered in fondant. All are attached using corn syrup.
I didn't want them poking holes with candles into Hello Kitty's face so with my left over cake I made a small one.
Decorated with Wilton's Hello Kitty candles and cake rings which you can purchase through Amazon.com

Happy Birthday Cayli
