I am so excited to share this week's tutorial with you! I have created a crazy topsy turvy stack of over flowing teacups for the crazy world that is "Alice in Wonderland".
When designing this cake, it was very important to me to capture all of my favourite characters. My favourite scene of both the original movie and the new live action movie, is the Mad Hatter's tea party. I decided smash both those ideas together, and came up with this crazy stack of teacups themed as my favourite characters.
The cake is positioned on a cake board covered in fondant as painted with food colouring to recreate the giant clock seen in the new Alice Through The Looking Glass Movie. I then made a 3D teacup saucer out of gumpaste that I placed on top of my cake board.
Each cake I started off the same way. I used a 4" half sphere cake pan to bake my cake. I carved it, so it would stack up all like a tower of teacups. I then crumb coated them with icing and covered the cakes in fondant.
The first teacup was designed as the White Rabbit in a waist coat. I used a toothpick to add fur texture to my fondant. Wrapped royal blue fondant around it to look like a jacket. I also made his forever famous "I'm late, I'm late for a vey important date! No time to say hello, goodbye! I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!" pocket watch. Using circle cookie cutters I cut out all the clock pieces. I drew on all of the little details using a black edible marker.
The second teacup was designed around the original Mad Hatter's hat. I textured my fondant using a piece of wall paper and covered my cake. I then used assorted edible colour dust also known as luster dust to highlight the details of the hat. I draped a dusty rose colours thin strip of fondant around the hat to look like fabric. I used brown colour dust on the edges of a small ripped piece of fondant to make it resemble an old burnt piece of paper.
This stack of teacups needs some support to hold it up. So I added in three dowels and a small cake plate to tier this cake.
The third teacup was designed around the beloved Cheshire Cat. I textured my fondant to look like fur again. Used a balling gumpaste tool to out line his eyes. I moulded all of his facial features out of fondant and glued them onto his face. I made his teacup handle out of his kitty cat tail! Wrapping around his body to form into a handle. Loveee this teacup!
The fourth and final teacup was designed after the Red Queen or as I like to call her "The Queen of Hearts". I made a large ruffled gumpaste rose on the side of the teacup. Then I painted half of that white rose red, with red food colouring! I topped it off with a gold crown and a heart shape handle.
To finish it off I painted my tea to look realistic with brown coloured gel paste. I flowed that off each edge of the teacups to make it look like the tea was overflowing all of the place!
