I hope everyone enjoys our Hello Kitty Cupcakes! I made them for a friends birthday and they went over great.
When I made the Elmo cupcakes and Cookie Monster Cupcakes last month I never thought I would start getting requests for different cupcake characters. The same day I delivered these cupcakes I was asked to make Hello Kitty Cupcakes.
I was honestly not sure how I was going to make Hello Kitty Cupcake at first. Finally after sketching out some ideas we came up with what we think is a pretty cute version of Hello Kitty Cupcakes.
Hello Kitty Cupcakes
We made strawberry cupcakes for the cupcake portion of these Hello Kitty Cupcakes. I found super cute Hello Kitty cupcake liners at Walmart for a couple of dollars.
The icing is cream cheese icing piped on to give it some texture
The eyes and nose are made with Reese’s Pieces
The whiskers are cut up pieces of black licorice. I was hoping to find the thin rope licorice but could not find it so I ended up finely cutting pieces of large black licorice
The bow is made with icing tinted with red icing coloring gel. I used the leaf icing tip to get the design.
