This morning, at 7am I started to decorate the kitty cake. (I work better under pressure:) I had the cake part all baked and ready, so all that was left was the fun part!
*this just in...I have to go pick up a bike for DD...will post pics and finish this post when we get back*
Ok - where was I?? Oh yeah - so kitty cake was decorated this morning. I used the sports ball for her head, and the Barbie skirt mold for her body. I didn't want to build up all the detail (legs, tail etc) with cake or fondant, so I used rice krispie "treats" instead. Everything was held together with frosting - cept for her head, which was held on with a plastic rod.
So once I had all her "parts" figured out, I took them off, frosted her and put them back in place.
And that's when she got reeeely fun!!! I mixed grey frosting (light & dark) and went to work, making her look more like a kitty then a...well...then whatever she looked like before she looked like a kitty! :) When I was done, she looked like this! :)
Aint she sweet?!
So - Happy 8th Birthday Kate!! I hope you had a terrific Birthday (and I hope you Loved your cake too!)
