Kitty 3D stages by ginas-cakes Kitty 3D stages by ginas-cakes
I took a few more pictures than usual this time, so hope it's still clear enough to see the steps.
This cake is strawberry flavoured sponge with vanilla butter-cream.
All the little balls for the fur effect were hand-made from fondant/sugarpaste and glued together with Royal icing.
The cake measured around 32cm tall form cake board.

Wow this is amazing, I'm going to have a bash for my daughter she's 2yrs 7months and loves hello kitty! (And I really want to try and can't wait of her birthday.) although I may not try such an intricate design. :)

I will do, I also thought it may translate well to a 3d peppa pig cake, another fave of my little one :)

That will be great :D....I think once you get the basics for a 3D, you can make whatever character you like.

 

.....and I just read your profile...we sound a lot alike, even the amount of kids :)

Beautiful cake! Your lines are so precise, and the details are so cute.
Did you used any support for the head, besides the main dowel in the center?
Thanks :)

Thankyou!

...an no....I just took a chance that the shape and size of the head would support itself under the icing. I take more risks with the

kids cakes as I know I can change or correct mistakes :)

I love this!  My daughter loves it to and has asked for me to make it for her up coming birthday.  Do you have step by step instructions that I can follow in dressing Kitty?

This is the most gorgeous Hello Kitty cake I have ever seen! Amazing! Can I ask you.. how big are the cakes you started with? I see a stack of 3 in the firs photo and I'd like to know how big they are.

Hi :).....and thankyou!

....The start of the sponges are around 3-4 inches tall, depending how well they have risen. I mainly use 6 inch tins for the 3D ones, so that might give you a bit of an idea of the size.

Thankyou for your comment ^^

Sorry about that.....it's only easy when it's all done and nothings happened to it.
I hate it up to the stage where I've carved it, and get the first layer of icing on. All sorts can...and do go wrong. After that though, it's just dressing it up.

It's not always the easiest thing to make carved cakes smooth. You do a great job with it.
