I made this cake for my granddaughter Amaya's 7th birthday. She wanted a pink cake but didn't want strawberry so I ended up coming up with the Pink Lemonade since a) she loves lemons/limes and b) she participated in an Alex's Lemonade Stand fundraiser a few weeks before her birthday.

How to Make Pink Lemonade Hello Kitty Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour your cake pan (I used a Wilton Hello Kitty (R) cake pan)
  • 2Melt the butter on low in a small saucepan. Sift your white cake mix into a large mixing bowl. Add your butter, milk, lemon extract and vanilla bean paste and mix with electric mixer for approximately 3-5 minutes.
  • 3Add each egg one at a time, mixing in between each addition until fully incorporated. Add your gel food coloring with the last egg. Your batter should be rich and creamy.
  • 4Pour batter into prepared pan or pans, and place on the middle rack in your pre-heated oven. Bake for 35-45 minutes (depending on your oven), please note, if you are using either a glass pan or dark baking pan, your temperature should be #25 degrees.
  • 5Remove cake from oven and let cool for 8 minutes. Invert your cake onto a rack and let cool until fully cooled approximately 35 minutes. Crumb coat your cake.
  • 6Ice your cake. I used a Wilton #233 multi open decorating tip (which make the icing look like hair) if the icing is to soft to decorate properly either refrigerate for a 20 minutes or add powdered sugar to icing to stiffen it up a bit. For the eyes and whiskers I use number 4 tip.
