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

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour your cake pan (I used a Wilton Hello Kitty (R) cake pan)
  2. Melt 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.
  3. Add 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.
  4. Pour 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.
  5. Remove 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.
  6. Ice 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.
