Hello Kitty Cake


This cake is chocolate coconut cake with fudge filling and fresh strawberry buttercream.  
Simple 8 inch rounds, a nice smooth layer of icing and a few gumballs...very easy yet super cute!

Making the top of the cake not edible meant I was able to prepare it in advance and saved me the stress of the "night before the party cake meltdown" (ask my husband, it's a real thing!!)

The white flower shaped layer is a wooden box that I got at Michael's. 
I painted it inside and out, made a cute Hello Kitty Spoolie to attach to the top and gave it to my little girl. 

And the inspiration behind this cake- Maddie Faith, my Hello Kitty lover!
If you want to see the party details, hop on over HERE.

A peek inside the box!

Cute cake toppers.

I have a baby in my life and the addition of little Caitlyn has inspired me to find ways to simplify without losing the wow factor.  I am so excited about the possibilities.  
Do you have any ideas?  
Please share!!

Great idea, plus you can't go wrong with strawberry buttercream!
