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!

The rest of the pics can be found here at Hello Naomi’s Flickr page. These would look just as cute on a cupcake stand or even on decorative plates at each table! They are truly creative!
