Ok I have to make this Hello Kitty cake & I'm making the cakes now for a practice cake. My question is, I dunno what sizes & shapes of cakes to make? I have 2 7" ovals in the oven now for the head. For the body, I'm undecided as to whether I should do an 11x15" or a 10" square & another square, or what? I know I'll have to carve it, just not sure what size to start with. Anyone have any input?? PLEASE?! I desperatly need help with this & soon... cake batter is made.

If you have a wiltons standup bear pan you can probably trim it enough for Hello Kitty

I don't have one. I also asked the person who made it & they weren't too much help.

i would use round pans for the body (x2) and use rice krispies for the arms, feet and ears (maybe reserve some batter for the purse and present) hope that helps-i haven't done carved cakes like that but that's how i'd approach it icon_smile.gif

Otherwise I think a ball pan for the body, then make the head from RKT. I'd use mini 1/2 eggs for the feet and probably RKT for the arms.

look at the size of your cake for the head and then your body cakes must be a couple of inches bigger in diameter to give yourself some extra cake that you can carve the shape from. I would be choosing the bigger pan just in case. Make it so it stacks and is joined, to be carved.

Good luck.

Thanks! Sounds like the general consensus is to use round pans for the body. I'll try that. I already made the head in the oval pans. If this ends up not working out (which it seems like it won't... too heavy) I'll end up using RKT.

if i were to make this, i'll use wonder mold pan for the body or just an ordinary bowl. then i'll use rice crispies for the head, ears, arms and feet. the bag and gift can be cake baked in loaf pan then carved. but if i need it an all cake cake, i'll use a good support for the head. it will be much heavier than the body coz it's supposed to be much bigger =)

I'm probably too late in the day answering this - but would you consider *dowelling* the head to the body to give it extra support - (or is that a given) icon_redface.gif

Q: What are Rice Krispies ....please icon_confused.gif

Rice krispies are a puffed rice cereal. Rice Krispy treats are a treat made with the cereal, butter and marshmallow.

I think you call them Kellogg's in Australia. It is a small puffed rice cereal
and if you mix it with marshmallows and butter they are called rice krispie treats and you can mold them when they are warm and then you frost them with buttercream to make them smooth and then If you want you can put fondant on them .
If you look in my pictures my turkeys legs and wings are made of {RKT}Rice
Krispie Treats. The recipe is on the back of the box.
Hope this helps.

Yes, Rice Bubbles are made by Kellogss -
mix with copha (shortning) and sugar and make RB crunchies
Can crush them and use when needing sand around a cake.


Thankyou dg10148
