AThis coming Saturday I'm making a tea cup with Hello Kitty's head popping out. I have looked all over for tutorials or ideas on how or what to form this cake out of. Can some one help? I had one idea of doing a 6 inch and 2-8 inch cakes and just carving it to form it but I don't do much carving. :smile:
i think you can get there from here
then for the handle--make the tea cup handle with 'handles' on it
don't make a handle then figure out how to attach it
worry about it falling off
make a handle with additional extra long arms already built in onto it
all in one piece
maybe even reinforced with dry spaghetti noodles or skewers
so that when it's implanted into the side of the tea cup it is already perfectly secure
make sense? i hope
AThank you. This helps me a lot. :smile: I was thinking of making the handle out of fondant and putting tylos in it to make it strong enough to hold onto the skewers.
fellow ten oh sea an
I made a giant coffee cup for my dad a couple of Father's Days ago. (It says Hey Hey because that's how my dad used to greet everyone!)
I started with the bottom of the giant cupcake pan. For height you can add a small round layer on the bottom. I made the edge of the cup with RKT (hence the very wobbly look!!) and the handle is RKT too. I used the pudding from a pudding cup that was a good coffee color for the coffee.
i wanted to just post the link but I couldn't figure out where it was in the new format!!
i bet he was beyond thrilled with that!!
Thanks, K8Memphis. My Dad DID love it! And he loved the giant pancake-stack cake I made for him this year too. But v sadly he passed away suddenly this summer. I'm glad others can enjoy seeing the foods he loved eating!
Your coffee cup is so cute and to use pudding was an excellent choice!! You did an excellent job!!!
AThersaf, that's a good idea with the giant cupcake pan. I hadn't thought of that. I sorry about your dad. I lost mine suddenly 3 years ago and it one of the hardest thing I've ever been through. When I finish this cake I'll post it.
Thank you all! I look forward to seeing your teacup!!
here is my final product. I had a hard time with supporting the head. I thought I had it supported enough but it pulled on the cake. Hoping that it's supported enough now and I dont wake up to a mess. Thank you guys for the help.
oh Robin, you outdid yourself
that is amazing
you are definitely gonna make somebody's dream cake come true!!!
<<<insert clapping hands smilie face>>>
(holding my breath that you didn't wake up to a mess--don't say/think the 'm' word! ;)
it's tremendously awesome all by itself
then it is the clever little paws that totally take it over the top
makes it brilliantly believable
ASo adorable!!! Great job!!!
question, did you use straws in there to hold up kitty?
AI used dowels to hold it up. I ended up having to take Kitty off and reposition her further back. I doweled the hands too.
AJust saw the other posts and I have to say thank you so much for the comments and encouragement from all of you. This cake is for my daughter's 12th birthday party. She has been so obsessed with Hello Kitty this year.
oh cool glad it went well!
What a great looking cake.
Oh wow, this looks fab! You done a great job, well done :)
ALooks great, nice work.
