Hello Kitty helps ring in a new and exciting year with real style. You can try to deny it, but animal prints are seriously in style and stripes are always and forever chic. Thanks Kitty, for keeping me abreast of the trends!
Normally I'd scream overkill at a cake this busy but there is some amazing balance going on here. A striped rainbow heart inside a striped rainbow cake? A rainbow of fondant sprinkles so perfect they must have been placed there by very patient elves? I swoon for this kind of overkill.
Admit it, you've still got a few candy canes hanging around. You're feeling a little guilty because you know you shouldn't eat them but you don't want to save some old cheap candy until next year. Go ahead, garnish some pancakes with them. I won't tell.
