I recently had the opportunity to make some Hello Kitty Cupcakes for a birthday party. While I enjoyed making them, it’s something I won’t take on so lightly in the future. Here’s some of the tools and steps I used to make my cupcakes. I’ll also share where you can buy the products to make your own cupcakes.
My cupcakes were Vanilla, you can use any basic Vanilla cupcake recipe you like. I also made all my own fondant. I’ll include the recipe before so you can give it a try. Here’s the step by step guide to making these Hello Kitty Cupcakes.
My fondant is white at first. I separated it in two parts. I kept some white and made some pick for covering the tops of the cupcakes.
These are the cutters I brought to cut out the face. I liked this because it was easy for me to imprint the face on the fondant. But it’s really you to you on what you decide. You can buy it on Amazon or Ebay.
This is the cupcakes with pink fondant on the top. I used a little bit of buttercream frosting to keep the cut fondant on the cupcake. It’s a vanilla cupcake. If you need a recipe then try my White Velvet Vanilla Cupcake recipe. I used a biscuit cutter to get the round circle of the fondant. You can use anything or try the set below.
Roll out your white fondant and cut out the faces. I used the press in the kit to make the face. You could also just get a food writer pen and draw on the faces. I used Wilton Sparkle gel to make the eyes, whiskers, nose and bow.
The colors I used were pink, yellow and black. It was easy to use specially with the cutter.
The finished cupcake. I used some more butter cream to stick the face to the pink fondant. Try to keep the fondant out of direct sunlight because the color in the pink fondant will start to fade. I hope you try making these Hello Kitty Cupcakes. You could also just use frosting and prop the face on the cupcakes as well.
