Wonderland Cake



My apologies for my awful photo editing skills but I wanted to make a picture that had the bizarreness and dreaminess of Wonderland. Alice in Wonderland is one of my favourite stories ever. As a child I had this big book with thick boards as pages and jigsaws on every second page. It was my favourite. I also had a video (tape) of Alice through the looking glass from 1987 that I watched so much I'm fairly sure our video player didn't even need the tape to know what to play.

And somehow there are pictures on google images of the exact one! LOOK!!!(actually its for sale on eBay too) Oh that does bring back memories....

Anyway, as you all know, Alice Through The Looking Glass came out in cinema a couple of months ago as a follow on from the fabulously mad Alice in Wonderland by Tim Burton. Unfortunately I only got to see the movie last week but for what it's worth I thought it was excellent! The whole concept of time and the story behind the red queen and the white queen really put into context their own stories as characters.

For the occasion of this movie I decided to make a Wonderland Cake. I love baking in themes and of course my mind with crazy with ideas for this cake so my initial plan was to have a very simple and almost calm decor. So that when you cut into the cake you'll see where Wonderland exists. On the inside.

I'll give myself 90% for effort and maybe 40% for execution.

I do need to work on my decorating skills....






Alice in Wonderland always gives me that fuzzy feeling. A feeling of wonder, magic, freedom and of course your hair miraculously turning ginger.


....with a few mad laughs from dear old bloody big head....


But that is all for now folks. I must arise and go now, and go ( no, not to Innisfree) to Wonderland (obviously!)

A very merry unbirthday to you!
Always,

    1. Thank you Martin! Oh no - I can see how it may be a little freaky to a child but surely the wonder and imagination in it outweighs the freakiness? ^_^ .....or Perhaps I was just an odd child :L
