I'm doing a "Hello Kitty" cake but they wanted the facial part raised on the cake, in the middle..what's the best thing to do for this? Add cake in middle then decorate, but how to assemble? thanks!
Hi. When I made a Hello Kitty cake, I just didn't level the cake and the dome on the cake was the perfect protrusion on the face. I am a novice so someone more experienced may have a better idea. HTH!
How about a frozen bc applique/transfer? It would be "raised" a bit from the surface of the cake.
Im going to agree, to achieve a raised image on a cake , you cant go wrong with a frozen transfer
Do you have the soccer ball pan? Or the football pan would prob work even before for HKs face
I do have a ball pan,,but wouldn't that be too high unless I carve down the bottome of it. I don't have time for the transfer as she ordered this and needs right away. I like the idea of the top cake being shaped out of hello kitty and place onto square cake,,but would the ball pan be easier? Thanks and loving the advices!
You could carve the top part of the dome of the ball pan cake off and place it on top of the regular round cake and them kinda carve the top and bottom sides so you get the egg shape of her head.
that "hello kitty's" head is not spherical in shape. Her face does not protrude. Her head is more of an oval and her face is flat featured.
I could just bake a 9" round cake, carve it out into Kitty's head shape, then carve some cake out of the bottom layered cake to fit the kitty's head to sit into cake so it's just sticking out some and not a whole cake. Does that sound like it would work? Thanks everyone always!
