This is a birthday cake I made for a friend of mine, who's little girl was turning 3. I helped her set up the party table in all it's wonderment. It was a bright and colourful Alice in Wonderland party. I didn't take any photo's but she did (She's a professional photographer, so they will look beautiful!). I will show them to you once I get them but she is a very busy lady at the moment.
Here's a close up of Alice in a tea cup. I made the grass out of Fondant icing pushed through a garlic crusher. I would make lots of wee clumps of grass and then place them around the cake. I put scrunched up paper towels in the tea cup and put green butter icing on top. I stuck the figurine down onto this icing and then put clumps of grass around her until she was steady on her feet.
My friend gave me the plastic figurines and I went from there. I cut out lots of oval leaf shapes. I let them dry. I put green butter icing around the whole cake and then I placed these leaf shapes all around the square base.
I placed all the figurines around the cake and then all the clumps of grass around the figurines to fill up the spaces. I had left over flowers and butterflies that my Aunty had made from my daughters birthday and placed them around the cake. My friend had made the cute little toadstools.
I would of liked to put some more leaf shapes around the circle cake but I ran out of icing and time of course!
And I made this crown for her as part of her birthday present.
I used this beautiful thick rich red felt with an inner pink felt and a big luminous white flower that I took the centre out and placed a diamante button in the middle. She looked so sweet wearing it.
