I made this Winter Wonderland cake for a Christmas dinner with my husband’s family. The bottom tier is two 8-inch layers of spice cake with cinnamon cream cheese filling and the top is two 6-inch layers with the same flavors.
The sides are iced in royal blue buttercream and the tops in white buttercream. I sprinkled white cake sparkles on the tops of each tier to make it look more like snow. I outlined and filled in snowbanks on the sides with white buttercream and a Wilton tip and swirled it with a knife. I piped snowflakes and snowball borders with white buttercream and a Wilton tip as well.
The snowmen and trees are all sugar cookies decorated with royal icing which I made a few days in advance. The trees on the sides of the cake are attached with buttercream. To attach the cookies to the top of the cake I “glued” lollipop sticks to them with royal icing and stuck them in the cake once the royal icing had dried.
My friend's sons were in an Alice in Wonderland play at their church, and it was also her husband's birthday on the day of the play. So she decided to surprise him at the reception of the play with an Alice In Wonderland Cake. The KING cake said "HE IS THE KING OF OUR HEARTS" and the RABBIT cake said "AND HE IS HARE TO STAY". One son played the rabbit and the other son was the king in the play.. how befitting !
It was easier to draw a large main feature of each character such as the face, than the entire body, because too much detail can get a little sloppy and more room for error.
All of the decorations (flowers, mushrooms, teacup, hat, watch, etc.) on this Alice in Wonderland birthday cake are handmade from fondant or chocolate and are edible with the exception of the feathers and hatpins on the hat.
This was for a 10 year old’s belated Alice in Wonderland party at the theater before seeing the new movie in IMAX 3D.
