Well Hello Kitty

Back during the storms of last February we were pretty hard up for things to do, and I posted some of that madness here.  If you weren't a reader back then you may want to take a look, there are some impressive icicle photos.  I mentioned then that I was going to attempt to make Hello Kitty cake pops.  I did and they were a big hit with Audrey's first grade class.  At least that was the word on the street.  I will probably never do them again though.  I didn't realize what a pain they would be.  The coating process was  a challenge and many kitty heads were sacrificed to the learning curve.  I could almost hear the mewing cries of the potential kitty heads biting the dust for the cause.

Well, after my last post where I mentioned my youngest daughter's love of Hello Kitty,  I was reminded of this experience and thought I would share a few photos.  We love Hello Kitty around here because she reminds us of living in Asia.  They are big into their cartoons.  We also worship Avitar the last air bender, and the many cool movies of Hayao Myazaki.  Without getting to far off track I will highly recommend Kiki's Delivery Service with the voices of a young Kirsten Dunst and Phil Hartman as the sarcastic cat.  Good stuff Maynard!

Anyways here are the photos I took, but never posted.  And if you want to know how to make them just click here.  I will warn you that they make it seem simple, but it's not.  They were a lot of fun to try though so I think we'll try the yellow smiley-face heads next.  They seem more doable.  Maybe with practice I could aspire to the kitty heads for another little girl I know in this house one day...

I think they look awesome! I'd never attempt such a thing.

I just posted a song that Adam wrote and recorded on our blog. Leave him a nice comment pretty please.

Eileen, Thanks! The pictures do hide a lot of the flaws. Good thing 7 yr olds are a kind audience.

Melinda- We sing the theme song to Totoro all the time. I was split on which movie to mention Kiki or Totoro.
