Hello Kitty Cake for Yaya's 6th

My little fashionista is now 6! And to celebrate Yaya's (Elishah) birthday my wife came up with a cake that defines her as a young girl with a sophisticated taste for fashion.




Cherry's design inspiration came from a blanket. Using fondant she made an edible version of Hello Kitty. She used white chocolate mud cake as the base. And, for another layer of chocolate hit she covered it with milk chocolate ganache.




To add that touch of understated elegance she finished it off by artistically placing a black bow around the base of the cake.




The main thing that distinguishes Yaya from the rest of my kids is her sartorial sense. Black, a rare colour of choice for a little girl, is something she wears with flair. Her dream is to one day have her own boutique.

Yaya's style of walk and the way she carries herself cause one to notice her. Even something as mundane as her manner of eating ice cream makes one look. An acquaintance who couldn't contain herself pointed this out to every parent in the room. I feel very proud as her dad.




Here's to you my princess. Happy 6th birthday! May God richly bless your every step!

1. Cherry needs to open her own bakery/cake decorating business. This creation is outstanding!

2. Yaya is absolutely beautiful! She is so photogenic and it's so evident in these pics that she carries herself with such grace and uncanny maturity. If she's like this at 6 years, imagine when she is a young lady? (I love her outfits).

What an creative, amazing family you have! 8-)

she should go to business now really. she make cakes like a pro. it's unlike the regular cake that you can pick from safeway. whenever i see a cake that's look like a big-bang of icing, doodled with hands like a crazy, abstract, high-on-drugs look on it, i run away before i melt. hers is clean like a freshcly cut nail.

i'll stop before it gets weird.

happy birthday to your princess. i am so happy for you mate. it melts my heart.

The Beancounter said...

"like a freshly cut nail"... HAHAHAHAHA... it has definitely gotten weird... pero salamat pare, i get what you mean...

and yes, now we're seriously considering taking this seriously...

thanks once again ziggy!
