Hello Kitty Cake

Without so much as a taste, we kissed Hello Kitty goodbye.

Sure, the cute cartoon cat is adored around the globe and frequently requested on my YouTube channel, but in our boy-filled home this lovely cake was never going to hold pride of place at an 11-year-old’s birthday party!

So instead, I put a notice up on Instagram offering a free kitty to a good home (it was snapped up within 3 minutes).  I later received a lovely video of a gorgeous little girl blowing out the candles on her treasured Hello Kitty cake.
You will need:
one quantity if Italian Meringue Frosting (recipe video here)
2 x 20cm (7.87 inches) round cakes
roll of black licorice (or you could use black fondant)
yellow food colour
140g (4.94 ounces) pink or red fondant for the bow
strawberry jam (optional)
This cake is fairly easy to make, I chose the italian meringue frosting because it is brilliant white, you will need a candy thermometer to make it.   If you do not mind if it is not white then you could use cream cheese frosting or butter cream or whipped white chocolate ganache instead.
