The cupcakes that we made tasted great too (if you were willing to destroy the beautiful designs to eat them, which is quite hard to do, actually). They are gingerbread cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting. I promise to share the recipe for the plain cupcakes in a future post that focuses only on the cupcakes, but for today, I wanted to share the Alice In Wonderland inspired designs that we created last weekend. Please leave a comment on this post and let me know which ones are your favorites!
The cupcakes are all made out of colored fondant that I purchased from NY Cake in a couple of different varieties. The fondant was very easy to work with - kind of like sculpting out of Play Dough to create beautiful food art. Without further ado, here are the photographs from my "Eat Me" Alice in Wonderland Series of cupcakes:
The Mad Hatter's Hat Cupcakes:
The Cheshire Cat and his famous mischievous grin are one of the most recognizable images from Alice in Wonderland. We did the Cheshire Cat into a cupcake, as well as an offbeat goofy cupcake that simply personifies his grin.
We did not do the Queen of Hearts or her famous croquets with flamingos on the mallets, but in spirit to the Queen, we did do a playing card cupcake. "Off with their heads!"
Hope you enjoyed my cupcake tribute to Alice in Wonderland. Leave a comment and let me know which cupcake is your favorite!
