Hello Kitty, Hello Thirty Cake!






When my sisters and I were kids, we were SUPER OBSESSED with SANRIO! Do you know Sanrio? It's the home of Hello Kitty, Little Twin Stars, Tuxedo Sam (my fave) and My Melody. Basically super kawaii before-kawaii-existed characters. Hello Kitty plastic dishes, spoons, stuffed Hello Kitty, stickers galore, little mini purses, fruit scented Hello Kitty erasers... and my coolest Sanrio toy ever: my Tuxedo Sam bath plushie, which CHANGED COLOR in warm water!

A super fun request from Lenny for his wife Erin-- a Hello Kitty themed 30th birthday cake, with 30 accompanying cupcakes. This made Coco Cake sole proprietor L.K.Sung very happy-- crazy orders are so fun! The cake was dark chocolate, with raspberry filling and vanilla buttercream, covered in fondant, with fondant Hello Kitty and satin ribbon. The cake and cupcakes were met with rave reviews, yay!

Happy Happy "Hello Thirty" Birthday Erin!! Hope you have a tremendous year full of good times!

Hello Kitty, You're So Pretty...I think those were some of the lyrics to a H.K. theme song! haha. I LOVE Hello Kitty!!!!!!!! My Melody, Little Twin Stars and Tuxedo Sam were my faves too. More recent Sanrio character faves were Bad Batz Maru, Kero Kero Keropi and Poccacho (sp?). Lucky girl who got this cake for her 30th bday! :) Nice work Coco Cake Cupcakes!

tuxedo sam never got any real props. hello kitty shone the brightest, obviously, being the flagship character and all! where are little twin stars these days?? my melody still gets some love, but little twin stars??? i think people prefer the animal characters...! :)

ABSOLUTELY adorable. I am thinking of baking the one for my kid this Christmas! A Santa Hello Kitty cake is a great idea, thanks for this!
