Alice In Wonderland

This cake was for my stepdaughter’s baby shower.  she is an Alice in Wonderland fan and is planning the for her nursery theme.  Her mother gave her a beautiful shower with amazing details.

The challenge here was that I could not remember many of the motifs from the story.  I did a lot of internet searching to help recollect a lot of them.  I wanted to impart a wild and somewhat psychedelic feel with this design – as that is how I best remember the story.  My daughter is very artsy, so I didn’t want to disappoint her with a run of the mill, cliché cake.  Her favorite motifs included the Mad Hatter’s tea party and the Cheshire Cat.

I combined a table theme with miniature cups, plates of cookies and little cakes with a top tier representing Alice’s fall into Wonderland.  I was a little disappointed with the multi-colored fondant of this tier.  It came out a bit too muted for my liking.  The top, however was my favorite part, with Alice’s skirt and legs sticking out of the ground.  The Cheshire Cat’s smile was added to the front of the cake.  Using spiral wires all around, tiny motifs were added to complete the story.
