Move Over Hello Kitty. Here Comes Chococat.

chococat

A special request came to me a week ago.  One of my friends wanted me to bake her daughter a cake.  But not just any cake.  A cake with Chococat on it.  I was honored.  Chococat is one of my favorite characters from Sanrio.  My favorite character is Batz-Maru.  I have a couple Batz-Maru branded items.  One day, I might get the Batz-Maru Bass Guitar but for now a few stickers will do.

chococatI just realized that Chococat and Batz-Maru are both boys.  Man, Sanrio has me pegged.  I feel a little violated but at the same time I don’t think I’ll stop buying Batz-Maru paraphernalia.  Maybe to battle my Hello Kitty toting office mates.

Back to the cake.  This round, I did some things differently in my cake preparation.  I used box cake mix and with the box cake mix I separated the egg whites from the yolk and beat them until they had small peaks.  Then I made the rest of the recipe according to the instructions and at the end of making the batter, I folded in the egg whites.  When I make cupcakes, this is part of my routine and I thought it might help in the fluffiness.  The cake turned out fluffy but I’m not sure how much fluffier.

The decorating was done in fondant.  I forget how moist the fondant can get when making black.  Make sure you keep dusting your hands/board with powdered sugar.  As a side note, putting store bought fondant in your Kitchen Aid with a dough hook doesn’t work.  I didn’t use Pocky sticks for the whiskers this round.  Instead I covered skewers with fondant…I’ll use Pocky next time.

Show me your favorite Sanrio cakes!
