This sweet little Ni Hao, Kai-Lan cake was for my friends daughter Lorraine who was turning 2. It's a simple 8 inch chocolate layer cake covered with almond vanilla butter cream. The little Kai-Lan character was a bear to duplicate. Odd proportions and her eyeballs set in her head like ET required a plethora of cutters and serious dexterity to get her finished. For awhile she was looking an awful lot like Tommy from Rugrats but in the end I think I captured her likeness pretty well and I hear little Lorraine was a happy girl!
