Alice in Wonderland + giveaway

I have really been looking forward to the movie, and in honor of that I decided to throw a little tea party of my own. I made fondant faces for some cupcakes.So, here we go!

For the Red Queen, start with molding a face.

Alice in Wonderland

Make a heart shape, and attach the face.

I added little swirls for texture and curles.

Mad Hatter was next!

Alice in Wonderland

I know it look like bozo the clown lol! be patient…

Alice in Wonderland

I colored some fondant green and brown to get this hue. I made a hat shape and wrapped the color fondant around it.

Next, I rolled out a thin brown piece and draped it to finish off the hat.

With scissors I snipped the hair on the hatter for his wacky style.

then added brows and tah dah!

Next, came Alice. Some simple blod hair, and I added strands for interest.

The cat and its famous grin.

Also snipped the edges with scissors to seem like fur.

Rabbit was pretty straightforward. Looks a bit like playboy rabbit. The details will make it pop.

The White Queen, oh, sooo….white.

I used Gourmet Writer Food Decorator Pens for all the details on the face. They are amazing and i use them for lots of things.  This is what I ended up with:

Made some wee pertinent nicknaks also decorated with Food Decorator Pens

Then I was on to bake a cake. But not just any cake. I wanted to Bake the Wilton Giant Cupcake! For the cake, I used this recipe from Wilton.

Actually this was his fav, and mine too. The Mad Hatter was mad as hell and divine!

I used some candle holders I had to hold the cupcakes. I loved em, do you?

    Those are really cute! I haven't seen the new Alice in Wonderland movie yet, and I hear that while the visual is great, the story was lacking. I'll probably wait until it comes out on dvd in June to watch it.

    Have a great weekend!

    i LOVE your creations! these cupcakes are cute and extremely difficult to make! you are a pastry genius!

    i saw the movie yesterday and honestly was a bit disappointed with it… maybe because i know the book so well. anyways i loved the teatime table and that was the part of the movie i enjoyed most!

    have a sweet day,

    I have yet to see the movie, but I am beyond excited to be going this Friday. I love Tim Burton and have seen numerous adaptations of Alice in Wonderland before. So I am looking very much forward to seeing what Tim Burton does with the story and incredible cast. PS: those cupcakes look great! I haven't used my huge cupcake mold yet, but it looks like so much fun!

    I LOVE these cupcakes! They are absolutely adorable. And the sugar flowers in the tea is an excellent idea – I have never seen that before.

    The movie is not out here yet in France but the ads are everywhere and my 7 year-old is dying to see it. He loves the original Disney film.

  39. Leesa says —
