Blair is a leap year baby, celebrating her birthday every four years on the 29th February. Even though she is a gorgeous talented young lady now she is able to have fun with her birthday celebrations as she officially has only been able to celebrate a few actual birthdays on the 29th February. This leap year Blair chose Hello Kitty for her party cupcakes. She mentioned that she really doesn’t like pink so I changed Hello Kitty’s traditional pink bow for a bright red one to match the fire in Blair’s hair and in her passion for her music. The flavours were chocolate and raspberry with white chocolate. The red in these cupcakes gave me a chance to re-photograph my Hello Kitty cupcakes and I couldn’t resist pairing them with these delectable Hello Kitty American Jelly Beans and this cute Hello Kitty jelly bean holder I found at Woolworths. Thank you for your order Blair and I hope you and your guests had as much fun eating these cupcakes as I had making and photographing them!
I haven’t made too many cupcakes for 8 year old girls so wasn’t sure exactly what to do for these birthday cupcakes. Again the decorations had to be made quickly to get the order out on time so I had the brainwave to look through my chocolate moulds and found this delightful Hello Kitty mould I had bought from Kadees in Fourways.
I moulded the Hello Kittys from white sugarpaste and then when they were dry painted on the eyes and nose with Rolkem’s edible food colouring. I moulded the pink bow from a silicone bow mould and added them to complete the look. They looked really cute on the cupcakes and I am sure they went down well with the girls.
