Alice in Wonderland Birthday Cake

It's been a while since I posted, far too long, but unfortunately the end of my time in school has taken up a massive chunk of my time recently and despite being far more preferable than A2 coursework and exam mocks, blogging had to take the backseat! But I have one of my favourite cakes to show you all, so I do hope I'll be forgiven! 

I have never read Alice in Wonderland, but thanks to the miraculous magic of Disney animation I know it pretty well :-)  I adore Alice cakes because they always seem to have such a fun and creative decor and I had been waiting to make one for ages when I was asked to by the lovely Lucy for her 16th birthday, and here's the result: 
I made all the decorations from sugarpaste in the week running up to Lucy's fancy dress house party, the cake featured the White Rabbit, his Pocketwatch, the (disappearing) Cheshire Cat, the door to Wonderland, and the Mad Hatter's tea party: 

I was really happy with the result of the fondant tablecloth, it was such an easy technique and I think it really made the top tier flow into the bottom one. 
The White Rabbit was my favourite figure to model- he got quite a good reception too! I think he looked suitably panicked :-) 

I hope to blog a little more often, and I should have a couple of interesting cakes coming up in the next couple of weeks!
