Mad Hatter Cakes..

One of the things I get asked the most is “Are you going to have one of thost crazy, lopsided cakes?” The answer is a definite “Uh-huh!”

The one above is probably a little smaller than I would like, but I love the details in it! The tea kettle, the pocket watch, the look of Alice’s dress.

This cake is simply fabulous. It has a wonderful harlequin pattern. Alice and the Cheshire Cat are on the cake.   The details are beautiful!!

In planning my cake, I have decided to forgo the fondant icing. Though much easier to decorate with and it does make for a more stunning cake, I cannot stand the taste of fondant. I am thinking the quirky “mad hatter” style cake, but using buttercream icing instead. I spoke with a pastry chef friend of mine, and she said that it is possible to use buttercream, but the advantage with using fondant is that fondant can be painted on and can provide for a much more decorative and elaborate cake. Hmmm…Decisions, decisions…

If you are in the market for a unique cake, start by browsing some of the interesting styles that can be googled under “Alice in Wonderland Cakes” or “Mad Hatter Cakes”.

Another way to go is the cupcake route. I have seen several brides who opted for colorful displays of cupcakes and either posting a sign nearby that says “Eat me”, or by putting in little toothpick flags with the phrase on the flag. These cupcakes are pure genius!

I was browsing the web yesterday looking for bouquet ideas, and I came across Princess Lasertron’s blog. She makes incredible fabric and button bouquets! This particular wedding that she made the most beautiful and unique flowers for, is simply beautiful. You can view the blog entry complete with pictures, here. The colors and layout of this wedding are simply amazing! It is very inspiring and “maddening”!

Backwards Pocket Watch

Recently, while pondering the Groom’s gift, I knew I wanted something to fit in with our theme.  I really want to give him a pocket watch, and this one from  The White Rabbit is perfect and ties into the theme wonderfully! The face of the clock is mirrored and the hands move counter-clockwise. It is a very quizzical and interesting piece and will certainly get many stares and compliments! This website is wonderful and they have tons of Alice related things that would make wonderful favors or bridal party gifts.

Hi!!

Welcome to my blog! I have been toying with the idea for a while to make a  blog specifically devoted to Alice in Wonderland weddings. I have been a huge fan of Alice in Wonderland since I was a little girl. After our engagement, my fiance and I talked about how we would like our wedding. I told him that I definitely want it to be unique and fun, and not too serious. I wanted it to be a wedding that people would remember as being just like that. So, from there, the idea of an Alice in Wonderland wedding was born. We have yet to set a specific date for our wedding, as money and other unforseen issues have come up, but nevertheless, the planning will continue. I would love to hear from other brides who have had an Alice in Wonderland-ish wedding or from the guests who have gone to such weddings.  Feel free to post pictures in your comments, but please remember to give credit to the photographer and the first names only (unless you are the bride/groom and feel comfortable giving your last name) of the married couple.  For those future brides who are having an Alice wedding, please leave any questions, comments, or suggestions that you may have! The more the merrier! It is wonderful to brainstorm with people of like minds!

Once again, welcome to my blog, and please, stop by frequently as I will post new things often! Utter madness awaits you!  🙂
