One of my favorite candies is a Kit Kat, which is why I think a Kit Kat Cake is possibly the best cake idea that ever was. And because who wants to stop with just a Kit Kats, we created this fun kitty cake recipe that is just about purrrfect.
There is no secret here, we are fur-real loving all the attention our feline friends are attracting these days. Those adorable faces and sweet meows inspired us to create a treat that is dedicated all to them. This adorable Kitty Kit Kat cake is sure to raise paws at your next party!
*There are just too many cat puns to make. ;) Somebody stop me.
Kitty Cake Party Ideas
Finish off the kitty party after making your kit kat cake with these other fun kitty themed ideas:
- Greet guests with a cat doormat
- Make bright faced kitty cat garland to string above these cakes
- Harness your inner cat lady vibes with a yarn wreath
- Replace the pumpkin face with a cat face and these jack-o-lantern balloons will fit right in
- Milk ice cubes made in any shape make a cat party obviously more tasty
How To Shape A Kitty Cake
To shape the kitty cake, you can either buy a kitty face mold, but I think it’s much more fun to make your own version at home.
To make the kitty shaped cake, bake the cakes in a 6 in round cake pan, using only one layer of cake. This made the perfect height for my bite sized Kit Kats which we will get to below. For my ears I used a smaller square cake and simply cut off the corners to make the perfect triangle.
Once you ice the cake it will look just like a kitty cat face.
What’s so great about a Kit Kat Cake recipe
Well, besides the fact that Kit Kats are one of my favorite candies of all time. The kit kat cake works so well because you have the crisp outside layer of the candies against the softness of the cake. The added wafers give a texture combination that is one for the books.
My favorite cake combination to go with the kit kat is classic vanilla because it makes the chocolate stand out so vividly, I also think strawberry would be a good combination.
Here my favorite basic but amazing vanilla cake recipe is right here.

First, you will want to prepare your favorite cake. I used a classic vanilla cake with white chocolate frosting.
Once you have your cake baked, shaped, and iced you will begin to prepare for the assembly of your Kit Kats. For this step you will want to start by unwrapping all your Kit Kats, this makes for a much smoother assembly process.
How To Get The Kit Kats To Stick To The Cake
Melt your chocolates and grab your unwrapped Kit Kats, and lightly dip the bottom of your Kit Kat in the chocolate.
While the chocolate is still wet, gently attach your KitKat to the side of your cake. This acts as a “glue” to hold your Kit Kats to your cake.

With a few little tricks and a whole lot of chocolate, this yummy treat is simple to create and your friends (especially if you happen to know any 9-year-old girls) will go wild for it.
