This cake has got to rank as one of my favourite cakes to have done. It is a three tier wonky Alice in Wonderland-themed cake for a three-year-old’s birthday party.
All the tiers are gluten, wheat and dairy free lemon cake which goes to show with a bit of planning the same kind of fabulous cakes can be created for those with special dietary needs.
The cake is made from 10″, 8″ and 6″ round cakes that have been carved into shape by me then iced and allowed to dry.
All three tiers are a mixture of airbrushing and hand painting with little red sugar roses and gold balls dotted all around. The board was hand painted to have wonky black and white tiles.
The teapot and teacups are also made of sugar. These were made in advance to allow time to dry and were then airbrushed and hand painted to finish. The figurines were added last and are also entirely edible.
I was absolutely stoked to be able to do this cake, it was such fun and I could have carried on designing it forever and adding bits to it but at the end of the day it was destined to make a little girl very happy!
