So it's a bit of a dark nighttime pic, but you get the idea. The big party is tomorrow and now that the cake is finished I can breathe a sigh of relief - everything else is pretty much sorted. I really hope the icing holds up overnight as I can't fit this baby in the fridge!
I ordered a Hello Kitty tin from a online shop over twelve days ago and it still hasn't turned up, so I took the bold step of doing what my mum did for every birthday cake my siblings and I had - constructing it out of made-from-scratch layer cakes. I took some photos of the various stages of making the cake and I will do a post with some step-by-step pics sometime in the next week!
