I made Hello Kitty cupcakes a year ago for a 1-year birthday party, and this year I was asked to do another set for another little girl's birthday! I will be a pro at drawing Hello Kitty faces before I know it :) I still have to google Hello Kitty images each time I need to make something like this, I am so out of the loop on what is 'in' for kids these days. Rainbow Brite is still cool, right? No? huh.
I decided to stick with a white vanilla buttercream in order for the Hello Kitty faces and heart sprinkles to really stand out. The cupcake wrappers were bright pink and I didn't want to overload everyone with too much 'pink'.
The birthday girl's aunt was kind enough to send me a picture of the cupcakes after they were set up!
For these cupcakes I was asked to make lemon cupcakes and strawberry cupcakes, two of my favourites! I love when people request flavours that John and I love, it makes it much easier to dispose of any that I might have left over.
The regular sized cupcakes were decorated with heart sprinkles and Hello Kitty faces; pink bows for the lemon and red bows for the strawberry. The mini cupcakes were decorated with some matching sprinkles (in a smaller size) and pink flowers. I love how the cupcakes looked when put all together!

I hope the birthday girl loved her cupcakes. These were so much fun to make!
