Hello Kitty CupcakesAugust 28, 2008
A friend of mine’s daughter Allie was having a Hello Kitty Birthday. Allie requested cupcakes – but mom didn’t really have time to make them – so I did! Here are the supplies needed:
yellow and black jelly bellies (bought loose at Target)
pastel candies for bow center (Michaels)
pink and white frosting
If you cut mini-marshmallows on a diagonal – they make the perfect shaped ears (for kitties, bunnies, pigs).
I didn’t use any piping bags or anything – just a spatula to put white frosting on. I actually had a tube of pink frosting – that I used to put two dots by one ear – for a bow and put a pink candy in the center. My kids helped by pulling out the longest of the chocolate jimmies for whiskers – wow – thanks kids!
If I’d baked these – in my egg mold – I may have gotten the more oval HK shape. Space the black eyes as far apart as possible – to make it look more hello kitty-ish.
The finished product. Lots of happy 5 year olds ate these (even the black jelly bellies).
