Kai & Xian's Toy Story & Sanrio Birthdays!

















Corrine contacted me nice and early with a request for her two cuties' double birthday bash: A Toy Story themed cake and matching cupcakes for Kai, and Sanrio themed cupcakes for Xian! Coco Cake enjoys a creative challenge so of course I said "sure!!!" and... I adore Sanrio characters, as I've mentioned many times before on my blog... having grown up with all the old-school characters, such as Little Twin Stars, My Melody, Hello Kitty (of course!) and my personal fave, Tuxedo Sam (the penguin)!

Then, the kicker - I got the CUTEST card in the mail from Kai and Xian. It murdered me with its cuteness. So with each passing hour as I slaved away (heehee!) on the fondant cupcake toppers, I thought of that little card and got excited to make these kids the cutest cakes ever...

Thanks Corrine for the fun order, and great to meet Kai and Xian in person! :)

AMAZING! You are so talented and i love your blog.Unfortunatly i live in england so wont ever be able to see your creations in the flesh. Could you tell me what you make the characters out of, sugar gum paste or royal icing?:)

Thanks so much everyone!

I Bleed Pink! Thanks!

Jessy, thanks for the sweet comment! Always appreciated. :)

Hi Callie! Thanks so much... :)

Cupcake Crazy, the characters are made of fondant, so sugar paste, not sugar gum paste. Gum paste dries like a rock and is basically inedible... Thanks for visiting!

Thank you Unplanned Cooking!

Thanks Brandy! I appreciate it!! :)
