Too cute! Hello Kitty cake made from licorice

Licorice lover Stacey Walsh visited the Licorice International retail store in Lincoln, Nebraska, recently, and found just what she needed to maker her daughter's birthday special. Here's what she has to say:

"I was in the Lincoln store a few weeks ago to pick up some black licorice jelly beans and some black licorice laces to decorate my daughter's 2nd birthday cake. I'm so happy I found what I needed. I made a Hello Kitty cake for her. My daughter Johanna went straight for the jelly bean eyes. I'm still enjoying the black licorice jelly beans. Thanks."

If you don't live in Lincoln, visit the Licorice International website for all your licorice supplies. You can find black licorice jelly beans here and black licorice laces here.

If you make a special cake using licorice, send your photo and story to us at and we might just add it to our blog.

Take Licorice on Vacation

Getting ready for a road trip? Licorice makes the perfect snack. It doesn't melt like chocolate. And it even helps settle your stomach on those long car rides. Not sure which licorice to pack? The bright colors of Licorice Allsorts will perk up those weary travelers. You can also pack a licorice sampler, or choose from one of Licorice International's best sellers, shown here.

Going on a hike? Make your own trail mix, using nuts, dried fruit and licorice. Cut up your favorite licorice or use a small licorice such as honey drops.

And, if you're like me, even what's supposed to be a relaxing vacation can often become stressful. I find a nice cup of Licorice Spice Tea to be a soothing way to relax and de-stress.
