...And super cute! :)
So how did this cake come about? Weeell...
My good friend, Bob (who is the bassist in my Betrothed's metal band, The Omega Point), had a birthday this past weekend. Now, Bob is known as a metal enthusiast-- he has hundreds of metal CDs! And he has super long metal hair and wears black 99% of the time. So of course, I just had to make him a metal birthday cake worthy of his approval- with a bit of cute mixed in just to mess with him. OK-- a lot of cute mixed in. And who's cuter than Hello Kitty?!
I started with an orange-almond vanilla cake and iced it in butter almond buttercream. I added a layer of dark grey on top then added pearl borders. Then I made the basic Hello Kitty head shape out of white buttercream and added the signature bow, but black (like her soul mwhahaha). And, of course, I added some corpse paint (definitely had to look that up) to her eyes, piercings and a spiked collar.
|I used a tip #5 to get the spikes!|
Once Bob opened the cake box, he heartily laughed, so I'm glad he liked it!
Perhaps next year, for his big 3-0, I'll make him a brvtal unicorn cake! \m/
