Buttercream ingredients:
  • 125g butter

You can use the same basic cake recipe and make any kind of toppers you want, from Winnie the Pooh to Barbie.


The day before:
  1. Prepare the Kitty toppers - roll out some white sugarpaste.
  2. With a Hello Kitty cookie cutter, cut the faces.
  3. Then decorate with black and yellow icing pens and a pink sugarpaste bow. Leave to dry.
To make the cakes:
  1. Preheat the oven to 180oC.
  2. Beat margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and the vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder. Alternately add the flour mixture and milk, to the margarine mixture. Add the pink food colouring.
  4. Pour the mixture in the cupcake liners and bake 20 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Set aside for 5 minutes, then place onto a wire rack.
To make the buttercream:
  1. Put the buttercream ingredients in the bowl of your mixer. Cover the top and mix on low speed for 1 minute and then medium speed for 5 minutes.
  2. Colour the buttercream with the pink food colouring.
  3. Decorate each cupcake with buttercream and a Hello Kitty topper.
