Decorating a Kitty Cat Cake

Decorating a kitty cat cake is really fun and easy! Since my daughter loves kitty cats and I love my grandkitties, it seemed only appropriate that we decorate a kitty cat cake for my daughter's birthday.

Making this kitty cat cake is simplified by having the design template pictured below and the step by step instructions on how to make a Kitty Cat Cake provided in this article. You decide the cake and frosting flavor. I chose to make a white coconut cat cake, but I plan to make a German Chocolate cat cake for Halloween. Of course, you may prefer a black cat for Halloween or a tabby cat for a birthday party.

They would all be beautiful kitty cat cakes!

Where to Begin

Kitty Cat Cake Instructions

Since this article is about decorating the cake, we are going to start with the cake already baked, cooled and ready for decorating.

For the cake shown, bake the white cake in two 8" round pans. Allow it to cool completely before you cut the cake sections according to the cake diagram below.

TIP for DECORATING CUT CAKE PIECES

Cut Cake Pieces are easier to Decorate if they have been Frozen for 1 hr.

Placement of the Cut Cake Pieces to Make a Cat Cake - Kitty Cat Cake Assembly

Apply frosting/Icing between each piece to hold them in place.

Hold EARS (pieces 2 & 3) until first layer of frosting is on entire cake.

The frosting will hold ears in place on head.

Frost the ears last.

      That is such a cute cat cake! My daughter loves cats, as do I. It'd be nice if she also liked cake and coconut.

      Wow this is so great! I know my sister in law would adore this - she has a big ginger cat, so I might try this out with some food colouring... Might end up as a disaster but worth a try!

      Adorable! I like my cat, and would enjoy trying to duplicate her dark tabby coloring in a cake... probably a chocolate cake. I have a good buddy who is closer with his cat than any human-cat relationship I've observed before, and he celebrates his cat's birthday with a full-scale party every year. I bet he'd go bananas for a kitty cat cake! In fact, I'm kind of surprised he hasn't done something like this already. What better food for the humans in attendence at his kitty's birthday?
