Easy Kitty Cat Cake for Lilly

Split cake batter - chocolate of course - in two round cake pans.  Bake. When cool, flip them out upside on a plate.   Cut out a piece from the top to make ears, and round it out.  I cut out the ear shapes from the butter paper and cut around them.  Which as you can see, I also did for the mouth area.

Elbow your son's big noggin' outta the way while he tries to sneak frosting or just be a pain in the you-know-where.  I used Karly's awesome froster thingy-ma-bobs from Pampered Chef.  I need to get me some of those.  So much easier than the 20 year old cake decorating set I have.  They're plastic and accordion type things that you squeeze.  Nifty.  Lots less to wash!  Tobin, seriously now.  Get OUTTA THE WAY!

For detail stuff, I like to put the frosting in a zip lock bag and clip a corner off.  Better control, my fair one.  To get the dark brown color, I usually add some cocoa, but Karly didn't have any so we melted four chocolate chips, and dropped in 2 drops of blue food coloring, 2 drops of red, and 1 green.  I think that was the combo anyway.

And since you have another blank round cake, use your imagination and do something fun.  I did polka dots to match her birthday plates.  :)

And here is my beautiful little niece, Lilly, who turned ONE!!  (And she wouldn't even eat her cake!  No worries, my daughter ate it for her.)
