Hello Kitty Doll Birthday Cake
It's a good thing Rick likes making the Hello Kitty cakes because we sure get a lot of requests for them. We've found the interest in Hello Kitty spans all ages and ethnicities and isn't limited to just birthdays. Last year Rick made a Hello Kitty themed wedding cake, that sat next to a Miami Dolphins football helmet groom's cake. What a fun couple! Just recently Rick sculpted a super adorable Hello Kitty doll cake for Lyn's 26th birthday party. Lyn ordered the birthday cake for herself, which we thought was just great, and she was a lot of fun to work with. She specified colors (black and hot pink) and the color of the bow on her left ear. She chose her flavor, Strawberries Chantilly, which she would share with her friends and co-workers of the restaurant she managed, where the cake was also delivered.
Rick sculpted his Hello Kitty completely out of cake, which is a difficult task considering how large her head is, but that is also what makes Hello Kitty so darn cute! No rice cereal treats or styrofoam was used. I'm glad we weren't there to witness the decapitation of the cute little kitty as Lyn cut into her birthday cake. I'd probably have to look away.
