Hello Kitty Cake

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I used Wilton's new stencil set to mark the loop pattern on the cake--it worked out very nicely. Also, the Hello Kitty faces are a Wilton ready-made product as well.

Q&A with cakeartisan

tallguy asked:
Which frosting did you use? How did you get it so smooth?
cakeartisan answered:
This is buttercream frosting--thin consistency. I get the smoother finish by mixing frosting on a low speed with a paddle (with a stand mixer such as Kitchen Aid) to introduce fewer air bubbles. Also I making sure the spatula is cleaned with very warm water each time before it touches the cake--I decorate in the kitchen, next to the sink and run the spatula under very warm water, then wipe it dry before each use.
