3d Hello Kitty Cake Tutorial - Finishing

Hello everyone!! So sorry for the delay on this post. It has been an up and down kinda life over here. Finishing Hello Kitty isn't that hard. A few more lumps of fondant in the right shape and some cute flowers and you have it.

Let's get started. :)

Here is where we left off last. :) 

1. The arms are kinda tear drop shape. I flatten it some
to get the flat - ish look. Leave where the hands go 
straight across so you can get the hands on there snug.
I used the same color as the shirt for the arms. 
Glue them in place with water.

2. The hands are mitten shape. Thick and just a thumb.
Made from white fondant. 
Glue them into place with some water. Just a little water
goes a long way.

3. Next we took some white icing and a small number 4 tip
and piped on some small white dots all around the edge
of the pink dress. That will finish off the dress and make it 
look like it has a little lace on it. 

4. Cut some small flowers out of fondant. You can use any
flower cutter you want as long as they are small enough to look
right. I used wilton metal set and small daisy cutter.

Now we work on the face. Which to me is the hardest part. It is what makes it look like a kitty and not a bear. lol. 

Here you can see the white border and flowers
we added to the dress. :) 

I placed the bow on first and that really helps me get the look I want.
You can place it on after. Not a problem. 

I used small black fondant ovals for the eyes. They really are smaller
than I would have thought. I made bigger ones first and kept cutting 
them down to get the right size. A small yellow oval was used for the
nose too. 

I love the food markers. I just used that to draw on the whiskers.
I worried the most about the whiskers. If I messed that up I'd have
to cover the head all over again. lol. No pressure. lol 

I really wish I took more pictures of these steps. I got busy and in a time crunch. Sorry about that. The Hello Kitty cake really isn't that hard and will only take you time. She is a cutie though. :) Just let me know if you have any questions. If anyone needs templates for the arms and hands just comment below and I will send them out to you. There really isn't a wrong way to make the arms and hands. :) 

Thank you so much guys!! Happy baking!!!
