Isabel loves Hello Kitty. She also adores Nightmare Before Christmas, but that's another post.

I made a box cake and used canned icing. WOW, do I dislike canned icing with a passion! I just used it because this was a quick thing for us here at home, but man, after making my own, canned stuff is runny and gross.
I had enough batter to also make cupcakes.
When I called her away from "The Nightmare Before Christmas" dvd to see the cake, ....

"It's a Hello Kitty Cake!" she squealed, followed immediately by "Can I eat her arm?!?!"
