Hello Kitty Cupcakes

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 really interested to see if the Cascade Platinum Pacs would be able to clean the bright pink icing off of my pots and spatulas. In the past I have had to wash the dishes by hand or pre-scrub them before putting them into the dishwasher….
