Homemade Alice in Wonderland Cake

Homemade Alice in Wonderland Cake

This cake was made at the request of my 17 year old niece, having always been a fan of Alice in Wonderland.

The cake itself was made from 3 round sponges, layered with jam, the bottom layer consisting of two cakes layered and the top layer just one, cut to be a bit smaller all round. I also cut away at the side of the cakes so they leaned in a bit, making the cake look a bit lop sided and uneven (trying to keep in character with the general theme of Alice in Wonderland). It was then covered in green tinted fondant.

The characters took longer to do and I have to be honest, were a bit tricky, and only those that worked made it to the cake... the Cheshire cat remained invisible! I made them from modeling icing, over the course of a week and just sat with pictures from the book in front of me, trying to mold them as best I could. If you just persevere with it, you'll be amazed what you can make from icing (the modeling paste was great to work with, much better than trying to use fondant). It also hardens quickly, meaning what you make will keep its shape etc. I just bought it in white, from a cake company, and colored whatever I needed with paste food colorings.

My niece loved it, and refused to cut it.

Homemade Alice In Wonderland Tea Party Cake

Homemade Alice In Wonderland Tea Party Cake

I was attending an Alice in Wonderland party, and wanted to make an Alice In Wonderland Cake for the occasion. I made 2 x 9" round cakes, sandwiched them together with buttercream frosting. I cut the front end off, so it allowed enough room for the table and characters. I then carved a groove for a river to run through it.

I then dyed some buttercream green and gave it a very textured finish for grass etc. I filled the river with blue sparkly gel, and placed edible rocks along the river bed. I molded a tree trunk out of rice krispy treats and then covered it in brown marshmallow fondant that I made from a recipe online.

My daughter made the Chessier Cat from mm fondant and then painted it with pink food coloring and cut stripes of lilac fondant and pasted them on. Alice, Mad-Hatter, and both rabbits were also made with mm fondant. The chairs and table are molded rice krispy treats and then covered in mm fondant. My daughter molded the tea set out of fondant. The cards were rolled out of fondant, then curved over a rolling pin to bend and then added the heads/ arms, and painted the hearts etc on them.

It was a lot of fun to make with my daughters and was well received at the party.
