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!

  1. The ears were made from spare cake parts cut into the ear shape. Here’s my tip: When I know I have a project like this, I make extra batter and make a set of cupcakes.
