† What inspired your cute creation? 
My sisters and I loved Hello Kitty and Sanrio characters when we were kids! My favorite character was Tuxedo Sam, though I don’t like his new school makeover. I prefer vintage Tuxedo Sam. The cake is a Hello Kitty cake, requested by a customer for his wife’s birthday!

† How did you make it? 
The cake is a 7 inch diameter cake, two layers of dark chocolate cake with raspberry filling and frosted with vanilla buttercream, then covered in pink fondant. I made the decorations using fondant, and the flowers are sugar flowers.

† Any other comments or tips?
Working with fondant is like working with play-dough, it is like sculpting. Although, it dries quickly and is temperamental! Don’t get it wet, don’t put it in the fridge or it will “sweat” (yucky!). It needs to be well covered with plastic wrap so it doesn’t dry out when you’re not using it. When you tint it different colors, you knead it like dough until it is completely colored! You can buy pre-made fondant, or make your own! A good tip: make sure your work surface is completely clean. Fondant is sticky so it picks up dust easily. Have fun!
