How to Make Easy Hello Kitty Cupcake Toppers

To jump right into the new year, I thought today I’d share a some cute Hello Kitty cupcakes with you!  Even better… How to Make Easy Hello Kitty Cupcakes.

It’s been quite a awhile and I’m determined to catch up on my backlog of unshared cakes/cupcakes, so here we go!

These were super simple to put together!  I used a Hello Kitty Cookie Cutter I found on eBay and cut the faces from homemade marshmallow fondant.

Here it is on Amazon – called a Hello Kitty Vegetable Cutter).  I chose this one because it made an impression of where the eyes, nose, whiskers,  and bow went… taking the guessing out of decorating these (yes, I’m lazy that way).

After cutting the faces, then making the bows, I drew the faces on with Americolor Food markers… easy-peasy.

For the bow, I wanted it to really stand out, so I used pink marshmallow fondant and cut them with frosting tips.   I found the round tips closest to the impressions on Hello Kitty’s face and used those (Ateco #806 and Wilton #12).  Then I just made a tiny impression with a ball tool to finish the bow.

These cupcakes were half chocolate and half strawberry.  They were topped with pink vanilla buttercream (piped with a large Ateco star tip), then I added a few sprinkles of Wilton Spring Confetti.

These liners were Wilton Snappy Stripes Baking Cups.  Very pretty and very matchy to the Hello Kitty theme!

  1. Adorable!!

  2. Super cute! Came by from Michelle’s Tasty Creations. My daughter is going to LOVE these, thanks so very much.

  3. I just stumbled on your site and am enjoying reading through your posts! Question about these toppers. How soon before the event did you put them on the cupcakes? Any tips for keeping the toppers from wilting?

    • I put them on the morning I delivered them but I have no idea what time the party was. I think if they’re made in advance and allowed to dry/harden, you shouldn’t have any trouble with them wilting.

  4. As a new baker I find myself baking more Hello Kitty Cakes then I imagine and I need this tutorial to help. Thank you so much and I will be checking back.

  5. What’s the best way to get the pink color for the frosting? A drop of red food coloring? Do you know of any “natural” ways to get that pink? Beet juice perhaps?

  6. Hi! I love the cake toppers! I don’t have a facebook how much for a dozen and how quickly can you ship? Thank you.

  7. OMG! your cupcakes is so adorable and i like it so much…i hope to be able to make such a wonderful and really cute cupcake like your’s. Thank you for sharing to us your talent.

  8. Hi, these are adorable! I’m making them for a friend’s kid’s birthday party. I’ve never made anything from fondant before. How should I keep the Hello Kitty shapes after I make them and before I put them on cupcakes? How long do they dry and harden? Should I refrigerate them or leave them out or keep them airtight?

    • I keep them in an airtight container – not in direct light. They’ll keep for weeks at room temperature. I don’t recommend refrigeration. Hope that helps… you can do it!! :)

  9. These are adorable. I have these HK cutters but the bow has always stumped me. Your solution is easy to do and looks great. (Palm to forehead moment…LOL) Much easier than any mold which was the route I thought I had to go.

    Time to add another Pin. I think I really do need a board just for your stuff. Perhaps next time I try to organize my Pins. btw…I’ve referred a few of my friends to your site and will be sharing you FB page with them too.

    • You make me smile Debbie!! I’d be honored to have a board of my own ;) And thank you so much for the referrals – I appreciate it more than you know!
