Hello Kitty Cake

A friend of mine asked me to make a "personal" cake for her three year old.  It is a boxed "cherry" flavored cake mix baked in small 8 inch rounds and is double layered with my usual butter cream crumb coat frosting.  I get these recipes from Peggy Weaver at

This is the first bow I've tried.  It came out pretty well.  I went on line and keyed in "fondant bow tutorial" and a bunch of sites came up.  Pick one, they are all pretty good.  I discovered that you have to hand it lightly as dents and marks can get in.  I also decided it was better to make the bow and put it on the cake to dry instead of putting it aside to dry and then apply it to the cake.  It is just to fragile to handle and I broke the fist one.
This was a fun cake to make and didn't take much time because it was so small.  I hope my friend enjoys it!
