Today, I am going to show you how easy it is to make the Hello Kitty ones.
First, I made white cupcakes and chocolate cupcakes (I needed at least 27). Make sure to only fill your cupcake tin 2/3 full or they are too big to ice evenly. Also, let's be honest, most kids lick off the frosting and throw away the cupcake anyway. ;-) I used mostly the white ones and only filled in some with the chocolate.
Now, on to the Kittys!
First roll out some white fondant (you do not need a ton for this). I rolled it out about 1/4" thick.
I cut out the head shapes with this flower cutter from Wilton called the Garden Shape Cut-Out:
I was trying to figure out how to make the head without having to add ears to each one. I found this cutter which was perfect. Sometimes, you have to look for the potential of something.
After you have cut out your flower shapes, using a sharp knife, cut off the middle point of the flower, leaving the 2 outer "ears".
Ball tool and a Fondant Shaping Sponge Set), you can quickly make her face the right shape.
|Lightly roll the ball tool across the cheeks, rolling out to either side of the cheeks. As you roll from the center out to each cheek, the fondant will lengthen in that direction.|
I added hot pink to the white to create the bows. To make a dozen bows, you only need a ball of fondant about 1 1/2". To start the bow, take a very small ball (about 1/4") and roll into an oval about 1/2". Using you tool, press in the center all the way around it, until you have formed a center.
Give them a try, they are really easy! Super cute, too.
