This is a Hello Kitty two tier cake inspired by the original HK colorful cake here.
Bright, colorful and a bit whimsical, this first birthday cake is covered entirely in my sweet buttercream icing. Can you guess how long it took me to fully decorate this cake? Just take a guess….
Now counting the time spent coloring the buttercream, a bit over three hours!!! This type of decoration requires me to clean the spatula after each stroke… yes… each one!!
I made a few chocolate colorful bows, flowers and HKs and one specially with wings to be place as the focal point of the top tier.
The top tier features a fondant made number 1 to celebrate the very special first birthday. Several fondant balloons covered in shiny dust to make them pretty and bright.
And a final front look at the cake.
As far as cake flavors, the top tier was a marble cake with mocha buttercream. The bottom tier was a strawberry cake with a vanilla beam buttercream filling.
I really really love this cake. I was very happy with the end result and my client was too.
