  • Your favorite cake recipe for a two-layer cake
  • White buttercream frosting
  • Black fondant for the cat face and ears
  • Pink fondant for the nose and inner ear details
  • Black icing for whiskers
  • Pink buttercream for flowers


  • Cake pans
  • Rolling pin
  • Piping bags and tips (star tip for flowers and small round tip for whiskers)
  • Fondant cutters or a sharp knife
  • Cake smoother


  1. Bake the Cake:
    • Bake two layers of your chosen cake recipe. Let them cool completely.
  2. Layer and Frost:
    • Stack your cake layers with a spread of buttercream between them.
    • Cover the cake with a smooth layer of white buttercream using a cake smoother.
  3. Create the Cat Face:
    • Roll out the black fondant and cut out a large circle for the cat’s face and two triangles for the ears.
    • Attach the face and ears to the top of the cake with a dab of buttercream.
  4. Add the Facial Features:
    • Cut small pieces of pink fondant for the nose and inner ears, attaching them with a bit of edible glue or water.
    • Use black icing to pipe on whiskers, and fondant to add eyes.
  5. Pipe the Flowers:
    • Color some of your buttercream pink. Using a star tip, pipe small flowers around the base of the cake and on top around the cat face.
    • Place a small dot of black icing in the center of each flower for detail.
  6. Finishing Touches:
    • If desired, add a collar of piped buttercream around the base of the cake or fondant cutouts to complete the design.

Baker’s Tips:

  • When working with fondant, keep your hands dusted with powdered sugar to prevent sticking.
  • If the black icing is too firm for piping, thin it with a small amount of water.
  • Practice piping your flowers on parchment paper before moving to the cake.

Conclusion: This black cat-themed cake is not just a dessert, it’s a showcase of your baking artistry and love for cats. Whether for a special occasion or just because this cake will surely be the centerpiece of your celebration.
