Ahem...this week's theme is "cartoon characters".
Today I'll be looking at "Hello Kitty".
I've seen this character a few times in cakes and here's a couple of examples (if you go to their websites you'll get a tutorial too!)
This first "standing" one is from Gina Rouchy of Gina's Cakes and you'll find the tutorial here.
From Deborah Hwang Cakes this cake also has a very good detailed tutorial and perhaps a bit easier than the one above:
Here's her other version (oops - she has no whiskers!).
I like the tiny dots to represent stitches - it's a nice detail.
Check out Deborah's other tutorials - she has a neat way of decorating cakes using paper templates that you could apply to any theme.
And from Bakerella some darn cute Hello Kitty pops.
There are a couple of how-to pics here including how they made those ears.
